Re: AMD Navi GPUs Will Not Use MCM Design, Feature Single Monolithic Die Instead
Like I said in the wccftech forum, I think it's a ploy to get nVidia to act as complacent as Intel has when AMD officially said they weren't going to compete back 2011 (Keller was hired only a few months later, and that's when Zen began). If Raja Koduri wanted to do MCM, then he believed the scaling was possible on the Radeon RX side. Except AMD just made a command decision to shift personal to the Zen CPU project and now that Kudori is gone they are saying it isn't possible. BS. Kudori will certainly make it possible with Intel, but because Intel doesn't have the best track record, nVidia isn't going to take it seriously.
From a consumer side, this sucks to wait for which ploy or idea will work, all while nVidia get to relax on new introductions. If Navi only ends up as a Polaris successor, that sucks for those with high-end cards, it means nothing is forcing nVidia's hand; I'm right now skeptical of what GTX1180 ends up or it's price. It's going to be a joke.
I also think it’s a ploy.
The think they’re going to dump 2-4 7nm GPUs onto a PCB and Connect them with infinity fabric.
I think we’ll see it sooner than later and it’s going to catch us off guard. (I hope).
I also think technique will replace SLI and Crossfire all together and that Nvidia is working on this as well.
