I don't think so. A 60Hz 2560x1440x24bit display needs
about 0.62GBytes/sec of bandwidth. That's trivial
compared to the >150GB/s available even in the DRAM system,
let alone the higher internal bandwidths of these chips.

And I've always had the impression that the GPU and GPGPU
versions of these cards had the exact same chips, though
with different firmware and presumably some differences
in external connections.
