        Thanks!

        Too bad these weren't released ahead of the release.

        Now released one year after the release, then its going to take at least a year until implemented.
        So support will be able two years after release, and by then there are already new cards out on the market.
        Hopefully they will be faster out with Sea Islands documentation.

          I don't know anything about the upcoming architecture but I don't expect major changes(?).
          So maybe AMD can provide some delta-docs soonish.

            More like half a year. First GPUs shipped in January.

            Already implemented, mostly working. That's what the LLVM compiler work in radeonsi was all about.
