Would be interesting to know why AMD didn't add a GPU Workload toggle for Vega cards.

I don't blame them for wanting to support them.

Me either. So long as they can sell them and get some profit back for Navi I couldn't care tbh.

They're not fantastic for gaming (yet) so hey, as long as they can sell them right?

Well Nvidia doesn't really wanna play ball with Miners. So if AMD can get that market for themselves and keep stock in check, then I don't see a reason not to. Don't rely on them for sales, but use them as a nice bonus.

Nvidia cards are not good for mining as deep down they are weak. It's basically the polar opposite of the 5870 vs the 480 for ED - folding... Christ, even a 460 ED - folded better than a 5970 !

That was where AMD adopted the kitchen sink approach and Nvidia dropped it lol. So now it's the other way around. AMD are amazing for mining, Nvidia are crap in comparison.
