AMD Radeon Instinct MI60 does not support Windows

Here at DV Hardware I don't typically cover datacenter products but every once in a while there's something worth covering. Yesterday we saw the introduction of AMD's Radeon Instinct MI60, a datacenter accelerator that features world's first 7nm GPU.

A little fun bit of trivia is that the Radeon Instinct MI60 does not have support for Microsoft's Windows operating system. TechPowerUp reports the card exclusively comes with x86-64 Linux drivers at launch:
At launch, AMD is only releasing x86-64 Linux drivers, with API support for OpenGL 4.6, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenCL 2.0, along with AMD's ROCm open ecosystem. The lack of display connector already disqualifies this card for most workstation applications, but with the lack of Windows support, it is also the most expensive graphics card that "can't run Crysis."
It's not known whether Windows drivers will follow at a later point. Similarly, we don't know whether AMD has plans to use its 7nm Vega 20 GPU for other applications than the datacenter market.
