Sapphire, along with various other AIB partners from AMD, has been making graphics cards exclusively for cryptocurrency mining. With the arrival of AMD's RDNA2 generation, this has continued as well. However, the company has been doing it more quietly to avoid backslash from its customers...
This is kinda odd to me. It made sense for NV to spin up their old 12nm products to meet mining demand, or even current consumer demand, but for AMD partners to use the current gen RDNA 2 chips smacks a little odd.
This move sort of feels like Saphire is letting everyone know that RDNA 2 consumer chips just are not moving at the rate they they expected them to (inventory is piling up on store shelves) and now they have a bunch of N22 chips and N23 chips that they need to move through other means.
