Coin Mining Gives AMD Long Term Tailwind

Coin mining will pay dividends for AMD says Seeking Alpha.

 

It is sad that AMD failed to take into consideration the altcoin mining customers when they made their production runs for R9 Radeon cards last year. The shortage and bloated prices of the R9 series could have been prevented. AMD would have profited more if the company produced double the number of the R9 Radeon cards that miners covet.

AMD Teasing Dual GPUs

Anandtech has received a teaser from AMD about dual GPUs. 

 

Given the current state of AMD’s 200 series product lineup and the fact that it has been just under a year since the Radeon 7990 launched, this is presumably the start of AMD’s marketing campaign for the obligatory dual-GPU 200 series card. AMD’s note doesn’t leave much in the way of details to speculate with, but considering that 7990 was already pushing around a pair of Tahiti GPUs, it seems a foregone conclusion that any new dual-GPU card would be Hawaii based. In which case, considering that Hawaii cards currently approach 300W, it will be interesting to see just what AMD has up their sleeve for fitting a pair of their best GPUs on a single card.
