    Phoronix: The AMD Linux Drivers Do Not Yet Support Radeon "Navi"

    Since yesterday several (Windows-focused) publications have been running stories about how AMD's next-gen "Navi" GPU was supposedly spotted in the AMD Linux driver code...

        What terms in this article are you unsure about? Actually have an idea for a phoronix dictionary thing but haven't time to implement it yet.

          Don't Worry Micheal, Its just that i am technically dumb. For the 'phoronix dictionary' you can put a lot of its weight on phoronix readers, i am sure there are many people who will want to contribute for that.

            If you have interest in such things your curiosity should be driving you to a deeper understanding. That is do the research that gives you the level of understanding that you need!

            frankly it will help with your enjoyment hobby wise or even professionally. You don't need to know everything of course but if you gave an interest don't keep yourself in the dark!

              The New Hacker's Dictionary/Jargon File seems like the sort of process template you would need for such a thing. However, I don't think there are sufficient neologisms in this knowledge domain to warrant something like an Urban Dictionary, but a decent lexicon sure would help. Shit, just parsing AMD and Mesa terms is a Course 101 glossary in itself!

                Thanks for writing this up. I'm sure we'll get some internal emails about it.

                  Probably not, but many in this forum do understand what is written in the articles even if they are not programmers or professionals in the field.

                  You might want to ask questions in the forums to get someone to explain what's going on.
