    The scaling with multiple GPUs works completely differently between gaming and mining.
    Even if they released a card like that as a gaming product it would be utterly pointless as it would get absolutely annihilated by the likes of the GTX 1070.

    Anymore that £2.5k and I don't see anyone buying it. You don't have the resale values as your normally would with buying GPUs.

    If it was a feasible proposition to port some CUDA code to OpenCL, I'd merrily ask my boss to buy one to test. As it is, though...

    Could you not build a machine with 1060/1070s?

    It's possible. I need to check if nVidia backed down on their "no consumer cards in racks" thing they added to the T&Cs a while ago.
