    Phoronix: AMD Lands Open-Source "Hawaii" GPU Driver Code

    The Linux 3.13 kernel that is just entering mainline development stages already has Radeon DPM and HDMI audio by default. However, now there's another Radeon DRM-Next pull and it provides support for the brand new AMD R9 290 "Hawaii" GPUs!..

    Great to hear ! As the kernel is the lowest piece in the stack, it's good to see this going in for 3.13, as the other projects can now utilize it to build upon.
    I'll get one of those R9 290's as soon as there are non-standard cooler designs available.

      All those pci ids for only two cards? Hmm...

      And is there any support for the audio acceleration in these patches, or will this be another hdmi audio output like situation for a few years?

        I'm guessing the devIds belongs to the partner manufactors like ASUS, Powercolor and so on?

          Maybe because there are many editions? Cards from MSI, Gigabyte, Asus, Saphirre, ect.

            Yeah, manufacturers these days do their own thang: add "complex" cooling so that they can jack up the mem. frequency, etc. There's also the "same model different amount of memory" type of cards. Like gtx 760 coming in a 2Gb and 4Gb VRam models.

              The other PCI IDs could be for future cards that AMD are releasing rather than manufacturer variations (possibly both).
