    It’s a shame that so many of those dedicated mining GPUs are useless now, isn’t it? But even with no outputs, Chinese hackers made it so they can still game! Or have they…

              Could have used same kind of drivers (with no direct o/p) with original 1060 too just to compare.

                          Just a question: If I have two gpus in one rig. One Nvidia and One AMD. Both work great assuming I am gaming on the monitor that the needed GPU is plugged into. Is there a way to get my second gpu to process the game but still output to the first gpu's output. Basically if I need a game to process on the Nvidia card can I get the game to still output to the AMD monitor? Kindof confusing but thought I would throw it out there.
