Buy a threadripper, use nVidia GTX1080ti for gaming while bit coin mining using your vega 64 at the same time (yeah, might need a 1000w PSU)

 

PCG have Vegas BTW

Only buy a Threadripper if you're a content developer. Otherwise it's still the 7700k or the Ryzen 5 1600

Lol... I'm not interested in buying one. I just want to see AMD build up a bit of capital and spark some competition in the market.

I think this idea of cheap Vegas is a myth now.

I agree with the article. AMD need to do something to fix this. Smack distributors in the head... and cripple their cards for mining.

Us gamers cant compete with miners when it comes to price. If Vegas are priced more than the Nvidia, it's counter to what amd want.

Or unless you're a diehard fanboy or you only play Dirt 4.

 

Whatever happens.. this product will make AMD money. They're still in a desperate situation but have scratched together some good products. They really need to keep momentum going before they can see themselves in a comfortable position. The market needs a competitive AMD.

GTX 1070 is better for mining because of lower power draw

At least miners don't want Workstation GPUs, they are too expensive.

I think AMD should identify cards through drivers and purposely cripple them for mining.

Bad, BAD idea. This the same slope as censorship is on. Worse: you're saying you're ok with the thing dialing hom to report how it's being used, and the mfg sending a kill code.

It's bad idea indeed. Maybe there should be cards for gamers and miners as seperate product, and they charge more the miner card.

Oh I'm not talking about it reporting home for anything. Just cripple all the cards for mining through the drivers... except on workstation cards.

And how exactly do you propose to do that, pray? The reason graphics processors are awesome for mining is also the reason they're good at graphics.

The only way you could arrange it is if the card was aware of what sw it was running and checked it against a list of 'bad' ones. And that would change pretty damned frequently as soon as any such monitoring was known about, so the blacklist would need to be pushed very frequently - or the card would have to dial home whenever it came across an unknown process.

And what happens if the mfg signs a deal with Publisher A for pots of money that 'accidentally' breaks everything from Publisher B, hmm?

No, that whole concept is a big steaming pile of "FUCK, NO!" and you should bury it under a bush right now.
