Necessary quote:
At the end of the day, even this testing wasn't without its share of issues with Uniko reporting stutter and tearing in games throughout the testing. Once again, we are brought back to where we started off this topic from and that is the abandonment of mGPU functionalities by developers and the GPU vendors themselves, at least in the gaming segment, over the years. We hope that there's a big revival of multi-GPU in the coming years but the current state just doesn't warrant the need to invest in a second graphics card as a single high-end GPU can deliver much better performance at a consistently smooth frame rate and while consuming much lower power.
Come put your overclock into good use at the nforcersHQ [email protected] team! :sweet:

When devs couldn't even get dx12 right until recently I'm not surprised.

It seems like the situation there has massively improved over the years, so maybe this stuff will also be revised down the road.
This planet ain't big enough for the both of us!

Exclusive: Here’s The Deal About AMD’s Stolen GPU IP
...
Here is what the AMD GPU IP leak actually is:

Partial Verilog files that are typically used in the construction of processors.
The Verilog files in question represent a single and isolated function(s) on the GPU - NOT the whole/actual GPU blueprint. This I believe is the most important takeaway and context for the IP theft. This particular function(s) is not very exciting and not part of AMD's core IP.
Based on the leaker's screenshots, the files they have not yet leaked are more of the same and also nowhere close to being a complete "source code". In other words, the total stolen IP represents a very small fraction of the "source code" needed to build and design a GPU.
These Verilog files are built on a proprietary schematic that is only compatible with AMD's internal design language (in other words, these are going to be close to useless to a third party).

Here is what the AMD GPU IP leak is not:

It cannot be used to design or build any of the mentioned products - not even close.
It cannot be used to reverse engineer product performance.
It cannot be used to easily reverse engineer any features/product specifications. This comment is based on the files leaked so far. The source estimates that it may be possible for the full list of files to be used to arrive at a couple of very high-level specifications but this should not be an issue because most of this information is already public.
It does not contain any data that can be used to easily/immediately bypass any security features on AMD RDNA GPUs. Caveat: there is a very slim possibility that it may be used to discover a vulnerability in the functions stolen in this theft.
It does not contain any "crown jewel" IP. In fact, I am told that this would not even constitute a "significant" theft to a company like AMD in terms of the severity of the information compromised (any theft is still very significant by virtue of the act of course).
