As I said.... the only market I can imagine for this card is budget "gaming" desktops from the big box stores. Comparisons to the GTX 1660 (what appears to be the current budget champ) don't make it very attractive at the price point it's going out at.

I wonder if they are salvaging silicon that has a lot of issues to ease up on bottlenecks and shortages and this is what the result is.

honestly though...with all the wins and headway AMD has been making to do something this stupid just blows the mind.

Something is telling me you remember the Phenom II X3 720s core-unlocks and Radeon 9500 to 9700 solder mod!

EDIT: What IF, there will be a way to do something more with this card... what if...
