    Yeah... but can it run Crysis?

    More importantly, will it blend?

    An EPYC 7742 or faster would match the performance per rack for integer (maybe slightly higher power consumption). The AMD and Intel are probably better at FP seeing that it's not mentioned.

    This amused me: https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/am...-graphics-card

    Now this chip has 160 NEON simd units total, so I have to wonder if it could pull the same stunt with the Android version of Crysis

    That's a pretty big chip (well, 4 I guess it seems), but still. So 4 chiplets maybe? 20c each? Will wait for perf/reviews/price.

    If you was rich, and have the "me so special" bug, you could tile your bathroom with these.
