      You could has 6 a while ago. Some of the FirePro W9000 series has 6.


      Speaking of which, is that the only difference between this and the Radeon VII? Also... wasn't the Radeon VII basically just a binned workstation GPU? If so, does that mean this is a bin of a bin?

          A few differences I noticed:
          1. TDP: 295W->250W, likely due to the improvements from TSMC
          2. FP64: 3.5TFLOPS -> 6.5 TFLOPS, although I'm not sure FP64 is still a thing for GPU computing...
          3. Infinity fabric for GPU P2P.

            No. It supports PCIe 4.0 (3.0 on the VII) and has 1/2 rate Double Precision vs 1/4th on the VII. I wonder if it supports SRI-OV...

              No, PRO cards don't support SR-IOV.

                Maybe first GPU with Chiplets?

                  why would you think that? the chip is already a well known one and not that big, that chiplets even would make sense...

                    Making a pro version of an already failed product which is also on the verge of being artificially moved to artificial legacy state due to being a too old architecture.

                    What could go wrong? Poor Volta I guess.
