    What about using the Phi as a coprocessor as intended, instead of as a CPU?

    Intel: Here's the most powerful GPU conceivable. It's not for gaming.
    *Linus tests it for gaming*
    Linus: Why isn't it working?

    You should try Minecraft on it and build an OP TNT cannon and see if it crashes. P.S. mine runs at 60-fps and when I fire up my TNT cannon, the fps drops to about 4-0. Also, I only have a GTX 1070 . SO, R.I.P. GPU XD.

    Hey running games on this is like when I was 8 years old and got my Commodore Vic 20. You had to start loading Defender from the Tape Cassette drive and then go off and have dinner with my family and about 45-50 minutes later when dinner was over the game would be loaded and ready to actually play.
