Hey, at least AMD might not lock it down like Nvidia did with their mining cards, and it could be used as a "high performance" graphics processor, like in laptops.

You can do that with the locked Nvidia cards. Linus did it a couple of days ago.

Most laptop links(Besides some proprietary ones) are limited to at most x4 PCIe too so sending the frame buffer back down it to the laptop screen is generally best avoided unless necessary.

Disabling secure boot and sticking to a certain unsigned driver version is a bit annoying.
