I'd love to see some exploration into GPUs built on a chiplet design, even if it's just for compute.
They could easy (physically speaking) stitch 4x 158mm^2 RX 5500 dies together for a 88 CU monster (or more), and have the package size not too dissimilar from a 495mm^2 Vega 64.
It also wouldn't suffer from as much yield issues on monolithic dies.

There's a fairly in-depth research article commissioned by NVidia a little over a year ago on the challenges around MCM GPUs that's still pretty relevant:

But AMD are clearly on a path to addressing one of the key issues: Inter-chip bandwidth (Which is orders of magnitudes greater than required for CPUs).
