    On the other hand, this Radeon Pro Vega has the best performance per dollar of anything you can buy now and its performance per watt is much better than of anything that can be bought at a non-huge price.
    To have some concrete numbers (for 64-bit floating-point):

    Radeon Pro VII: 26.0 Gflops/W, 3.42 Gflops/USD


    Titan V (GV100): 27.6 Gflops/W, 2.30 Gflops/USD
    Ryzen 9 3900X: 6.95 Gflops/W, 0.91 Gflops/USD (at launch, now it is cheaper, so better performance per dollar)
    Tesla V100S : 32.8 Gflops/W, 0.82 Gflops/USD (pathetic performance per dollar)
    Xeon W-2295 (AVX-512) 8.7 Gflops/W, 0.81 Gflops /USD
    Threadripper 3990X: 10.6 Gflops/W, 0.65 Gflops/USD

      First Vega with PCIe 4?

        My country does not import any AMD Pro or Vega-based cards at all, with the cheapest 16GB NVidia option being the equivalent of ~2200$ (with a Radeon VII, or a used Vega Frontier on Amazon, including shipping from the US, being the equivalent of ~900$). Also, given the issues outlined here with GCN/CRDN, would they still be a recommendation for video editing, or does that suffer the same way as gaming (my sister does not game)?

        If so, the next best option would be a 11GB GTX 1080 Ti for the equivalent of ~750$).
        As other people suggested, try asking specific forums, like these:

          I believe the Instinct MI-50 and MI-60 cards were first, and this is "next".

            The links are general purpose - they just give each GPU the ability to access HBM on a linked GPU with very high performance - although I expect they will be used for compute at least as much as for graphics.
            No, I mean like DirectGMA or SR-IOV or something that lets you abstract GPUs - so it doesn't have to be 1GPU per display. Considering GPU passthrough is for multiple VMs has become nicer, but they are still physically stuck to displays, unfortunately.

              • runs at higher clocks (boosts to 1750 MHz instead of 1700 MHz)
              • has only PCIe 3.0 (instead of 4.0)
              • has half of the fp64 performance
              • has no over-the-top Infinity Link connector for direct card-to-card communication.
              • costs $700 (this lists for $1900)
              To my knowledge it's the first card with HBM and ECC memory protection, which would have more impact if it was SR-IOV compatible.

                OK, so maybe you are talking about associating each display connector with a fraction of a GPU's processing power, ie splitting a single board into multiple virtual GPUs and then simulating physical GPUs for each of those virtual GPUs so that they could be independently passed through to a host OS ?

                  Nope. Let's take this scenario: I get the latest dual GPU AMD card. I dedicate 1 GPU to the host, then I dedicate the 2nd GPU to a guest VM. I cannot see the both on the same display unless I want to mess with some other layers via software emulation.

                    Not sure we're converging yet. The only dual-GPU cards we make today are (a) the Vega II Duo board for Mac Pro and (b) the dual-Vega V340 server card which has no display connectors.

                    Are you talking about configuring two of the new Radeon Pro VII cards ?

                      Right. So I'm saying for all of these cases I want this ability:
                      -- for the Vega II Duo
                      -- when using multiple cards (and one display)
                      -- future multi-GPU cards
