I stumbled upon this:
1.5 Tflop double precision card.
It quotes it has ECC, yet past few weeks AMD started announcing a lot
Is it because they're nearly bankrupt (chapter 11) within a few
months, or did they really produce
an entire new GPU line?
As just putting 2 gpu's from the 7900 series onto a card isn't gonna
work easily with ECC,
i understood from hardware engineers that this requires total
redesign of a chip, as you default would lose 90%
performance from the RAM otherwise.
Maybe the CRC that DDR5 has has been with some creative engineering
renamed to ECC?
Anyone on this?
As the AMD forums this question was raised as well yet no answers
from AMD engineers there...
