Some other slide not posted here shows that the dual-gpu core into it are Vega 56. So, if setup properly for efficiency this pair can consume 250-270W on full load.
Well it has official TDP of 300W and requires two 8-pin power. It has it own site on amd too. Interestingly that memory bandwidth translates to 2Gbps hbm2s so it's the same speed but higher density as what radeon pro WX8200 uses.

I'm looking at this design and thinking; " Where's the fan? "
It's written and said a few times, but these cards are supposed to be installed in a server casing where airflow is extremely important, and nobody gives a rat about noise. Datacenters are controlled with 24/7 Aircon's running to keep the ambient temp to 15 ~ 20 degrees.

If you install this in a regular desktop case and hit the benchmark button it will quit within 10 seconds. There is no way that cooling is able to keep up with ~ 300 ~ 400 watts without any airflow.



The Phi of Intel consumes 250W. Do you really believe that 250W is passive cooled? The air is forced through the servercase.

Yep. Have these people never, ever seen a server/datacenter GPU launch post before? None of these have built-in fans. If they had, they'd be blown to pieces by the server's own fans, and they'd take up valuable volume that could house a bigger heatsink. I'm kind of baffled by all these "OMG where's the fan?!?!?!?!?!" comments.
This is designed for server racks with huge fans pushing air behind it.

And while those are all good points, it seems clear that more parties will be interested in AMD's new card than just those with rack systems.

Was there price somewhere for this. Tesla V100 32GB pcie costs ~8000€.
Not really. I saw estimates based on AMD's product line so far and it should be somewhere around $4-5k.
