Sure: 8.88 TFLOPS FP32. FP64 and FP16 are pretty much inexistant
(something like 0.1-0.2 TFLOPS each), which is understandable given
the market it's aimed at (who needs anything else thatn FP32 in
So regarding FP32, we're not at 2.0x, granted, more 1.75x.

Sure, that's very true.

In March, AMD mentioned 13.9 TFLOPS FP32 for the S9300 x2, which would
surely be interesting if it comes to that. But only 0.8 TFLOPS FP64,
so that wouldn't make it a great alternative to the GP100 for HPC (not
talking MD or Deep-learning here, more traditional CFD-like things).
Especially if you consider that it's a dual-chip card.
