            Finally AMD is putting the focus on what is important.
            Drivers

              I just starts to read, but

              Update: It appears that the news about the driver release was a little premature. The drivers are no longer available on the AMD website. Expect an updated post for when the drivers will become available.

                One would assume drivers would be the number two priority to focus, right after actually building good hardware.

                  New driver and OpenCL 2.0 for Radeon HD 7000

                  I hope that this driver brings the OpenCL 2.0 support for new Radeon Rx 200 series and older Radeon HD 7000 gfx cards. Previous provisional OpenCL 2.0 driver (from september) does not support OpenCL 2.0 for HD 7000. I was trying to compile specific OpenCL 2.0 and I couldn't do it with driver from september. Does anyone can confirm an OpenCL 2.0 support for older gfx cards? Someone from amd dev forurm wrote that is not excluded.

                    I like APUs, hardware is fine:

                    AMD states that you can expect up to 19% more performance than the previous driver (Catalyst 14.11.2) when running games on high-end graphics cards, and up to 29% more performance on APU-based systems.
                    That should be incredible, but only if that is true ... many removed those news from sites , i guess we will need to wait a little
