AMDGPU

AMDGPU is the name given to the AMD GPU LLVM back-end (formerly known as the R600 LLVM back-end) as well as a new DRM kernel driver for supporting newer hardware. The AMDGPU kernel driver is used by both the open-source Gallium3D user-space driver and the new (closed-source) Catalyst driver in user-space on Linux systems.
