I said recently that the GPU manufacturers had to be taking notice in the number of sales of AMD cards for mining purposes and that my hope would be that one or both nVidia and/or AMD will come out with mining specific cards and this story proves that they're paying attention. It's also a great informative article for any noobs new to mining:

Of course they are paying attention. At the 290 launch they had slides talking about hashrate. They know that they're cards are selling like crazy. Why make a mining only card though. They are already selling like crazy. I guess to try and make gamers happy.

Hey guys.. I have (4) 290x I just picked up for a gaming rig I am going to watercool.. My question is.. Should I start mining with them in my bench setup right now, or wait until I watercool?

I think if they put their minds to it they could make a mining only card designed specifically for mining that would be more efficient, because it's designed to do one thing. I understand that might not be so great for the miner that wants to give it up and sell his equipment, but if you're not all the way in then maybe you wouldn't buy the mining only specific card. I also believe a mining specific card could be made cheaper than a standard card, because you wouldn't need 4-5 display options on the end. For that matter, they could make them in basically master and slave models with the master models being the ones with display ports and the slaves without. However, that might mean two separate production lines and they might not want to go for that.

These are just ideas bouncing around inside my empty skull like a racquet ball, so don't mind me.

I believe early versions of SLI/crossfire uses master and slave cards.

Anyways, I'm not sure if AMD will be brave enough to pull together a mining only card anytime soon.
As we all know, designing and testing a chip takes time, and by the time its ready for mass production the market could have changed dramatically.

And don't forget, with AMD's production capabilities the difficulty could easy double over night, if they came up with an ultra efficient design.

Oh I don't doubt that they could. But seems like it could be a bad choice for them. If mining tanks they are stuck with all those cards. Not so with GPUs.

Please don't forget these game changers, I'm looking very forward to the more powerful Maxwell cards due out later this year:

That's crazy. I need to fix that.

Yeah the 750ti looks pretty sweet. I would be tempted to grab a couple but of course prices have gone up. Seems like we're in the same boat we were with hard drives recently. They are just going to inflate prices all around and we are stuck paying it. I don't see maxwell lowering prices. We just get to pay more for that too since the demand will be there.
