I am looking forward to invest in a good GPU/ASIC for Machine-Learning research. I do not want to choose any of NVIDIA's consumer-grade GPUs as they are mainly gaming oriented and the price I'd be paying wouldn't be justified as I won't be using any game-play oriented features like Ray Tracing. And also, the previous generation GPUs' prices have gone up despite the launch of new 20XX series making the 10XX not a good buy.
AMD's consumer-grade GPUs aren't still powerful enough as their counterparts and their enterprise-grade GPUs are too costly and don't justify the price to performance ratio.
Recently, Habana Labs announced their ML oriented chipset but its samples ship Q2 of 2019 and I might consider waiting if it is justified.
So, are there any Good consumer grade ASIC/GPUs for ML?
P.S: I don't mind library support
