    always following everyone else's ideas, even product naming schemes.

    This will do nothing in regard to the actual problem PC gamers have if they want to upgrade to a current GFX card.
    You need to totally lock out miners of every GFX product.

    It certainly won't if AMD's mining gpu's are built on the same node as their gaming ones as it's just one more thing competing for it. Nvidia at least had the sense to make their mining gpu's using something turing based which is fabbed on a completely different/older node to amphere.

    Only the lower end CMP cards are based on older GPUs. The higher end CMP cards are using Amphere GPUs.

    phah! everyone wants that slice of mining pie.

    and can companies please stop pretending they are doing it for gamers. They are doing it for their profits and nothing more

    Profit and nothing more.

    That is true, but then AMD need to get off the "for the gamers" bandwagon and get on the "for the investors" bandwagon.

    Still i think they do want to make and sell their products to gamers, just the parasite miners can use the same product for their stuff, and as most gamers dont make money doing what they do, it make sense miners will have more money to spend on new cards VS gamers.

    So i suggest something need to be done in hardware, cuz just doing something in BIOS or drivers will not cut it, the leeching parasite miners need to be forced out.

    And yes i do sort of see miners as electronic pushers, but there are no jail time for mining VS selling drugs, so this is the new frontier.
    I am actually surprised drug cartels are not into mining for a long time, seem like a good way to launder dirty drug dollars to clean shiny bit money.
    So buy GFX cards ASIC miners for drug dollars, set up mining farm = output clean bit money.

    Trying to rework navi 12 for GDDR6 sounds like you actually need navi 10 chips. I wonder how the stock situation for HBM2 is? It'd be nice if AMD offered a HBM 5700XT refresh
