[quotemsg=19679543,0,328798][quotemsg=19678246,0,1612573]Why do I feel like one day, there's going to be a discrete AI card for gaming, like how their used to be discrete PhysX cards.[/quotemsg]Why would this functionality even migrate out of GPUs into dedicated (consumer-oriented) cards, in the first place? Remember that PhysX started out as dedicated hardware that got absorbed into GPUs, as GPUs became more general.
If I'm a game developer, why would I even use some dedicated deep learning hardware that nobody has, when I could just do the same thing on the GPU? Maybe it increases the GPU specs required by a game, but gamers would probably rather spend another $100 on their GPU than to buy a $100 AI card that's supported by only 3 games.[/quotemsg]
*shrug* People bought the stuff before. Not a lot, obviously. But some. Just a stray thought, anyway.
