      Yeah, we discussed various naming options, but the bottom line was that when a new driver component is started we know the name of the first generation it will support but rarely know the name of the last generation... so r600g (src/gallium/drivers/r600 IIRC) covers r6xx through NI and radeonsi covers SI through <who knows ?>...
      Wouldn't radeongcn have been a better name then radeonsi?

        The problem is that we don't know what comes after GCN and whether it will also fit into the same driver. We kinda had two choices :

        - stay with the current naming convention based on "first supported generation"
        - rename existing drivers as well and go with architecture-based names

        Agree that the transitional product naming (where high end SI parts are GCN and lower parts are VLIW) makes the current naming convention awkward for now.
