AMD Radeon Pro W6800 to Feature 32GB Memory

AMD's upcoming professional graphics card based on the 7 nm "Navi 21" silicon, the Radeon Pro W6800, will feature 32 GB of GDDR6 memory, according to a new leaked validation on the Userbenchmark database. The card was pictured and detailed in an older article that you can read here. It's likely that AMD achieved 32 GB over the chip's 256-bit wide memory bus using sixteen 16 Gbit memory chips, with two chips piggy-backed per 32-bit path. The picture leak from April also reveals a heatspreader over the reverse side of the otherwise bare PCB that points to the likelihood of memory chips being located there. On the client-segment Radeon RX 6800 XT, 16 GB is achieved using eight 16 Gbit chips, all of which are located on the obverse side. The exact specifications of the Pro W6800 remain unknown, but is expected to be comparable to the RX 6800 series.

Does it come with a hardhat, overalls, boots and a pick? It is not likely to be used by minors?

I doubt it will mine any faster than the gaming cards, also these will be a lot more expensive than the 6800XT.
Either way miners want Ampere more than anything.

I guess gamers would be interested by them, the 6800/6800xt offer similar hash rate to the 3070/3060ti while being much faster in games, and they cost about the same as the 3070, the 3060ti doesn't exist, I guess they go to mining farms immediately after manufacturing.

In fact miners want the 5700/XT over the 6700XT because of that.

The RX6700XT is junk, it doesn't perform in neither games nor mining, that's why it's always available next to the 3090 and 6900XT.
