    coder duby229 Thanks guys, however the network that my MNO (yes, there is only one MVNO in the country, with the rest being MNOs that rely on the 4 big carriers (two of them have been sharing infrastructure since a few years ago)) relies upon, since a few years ago, has become extremely unreliable, and in my current location, their provider have the best reception, due to an antennae of theirs located within less than 250 meters away (my country has strict (sometimes pointless, due to them being rife with politics and indifference to citizens (as in, both health and new technologies being ignored, for the sake of money, and political battles) laws regarding networking, which makes independent antennaes illegal, regardless of their strength). The issues are affecting everyone here on every MNO that utilizes the same infrastructure that my MNO utilizes.

    I'll be moving to the aforementioned MVNO (it relies on a different infrastructure, which has relatively good coverage here) once my family switches over (family plan), and in the meantime, I'm trying to contact the relevant people (some things here are like in an enterprise, you need to contact certain people to contact the relevant companies).

    Worse, it's not necessarily even at your end. It could also be something close to the tower you're using.

    I'm not a RF guy, but there could be reasons. Have you investigated using an external antenna? That used to be one option, but I don't even know if it works with current standards.
    There are fractal pcb antennas you can buy that just stick behind the battery, but my impression of the one I had was it didn't make a perceptible difference.

    seriously, how does -71dBm suddenly become -108dBm, or even outright disconnect without moving the device at all?

    Thanks, I'll do that when I have the time (I'm not at home for the time being, and due to the cellular reception with my cellular provider being ever more unstable, I don't have a lot of time (seriously, how does -71dBm suddenly become -108dBm, or even outright disconnect without moving the device at all? Not to mention the ~100KB/s download speed on HSPAP)).

    As those don't have display outputs, they might not be what ernstp actually had in mind.

    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

    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.

    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 ?

    How will it allow for multi-GPU (using passthrough) -> single display?

    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.

    • is 300 W (this is 250)
    • 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.
