If this is a gaming GPU, AMD know they cannot beat Pascal in a single GPU and are 'cheating' by sticking two together. This would be an awesome prospect if Crossfire were actually supported better.

My thoughts exactly. This is not a good sign. Not unless they are going for something like Titan Z. And I doubt that.

It will probably also be a silly price (bag of sand minimum) and will cost more than two separate Vega cards.

Which of course will make it a niche card, meaning CF support will be scant.
