    In any case 60 000 lines of code for just one variant for just one chip. I wonder when Linux developers will say enough is enough. I guess in the future there will be different git repos for each kernel sub tree, and make install will download selectively depending on the kernel compile configuration.
    i wonder when you will stop posting bullshit

      otoh: I love overengineering build systems, so it might just be an itch I'm having.
      they are generated not from random numbers, you will have to put 60k lines of what they are generated from into kernel and do stupid work during build for no reason

          It isn't APU, nor mobile... hm, could be card or PX. Yeah, sounds like PX some Topaz succesor

          edit: OK, isn't PX... didn't looked at code before really

            that could just be one of the vega 12 SKU's - it would make sense for Instinct/Workstation/Rx Vega to all make an appearance for this chip. same again with the Vega11

              RX580 is Polaris 20 XTX (Ellesmere XTX).
