    While it will be a ways from release, the codename to the successor of the AMD Radeon "Navi" GPUs might be Arcturus...

    I can't help but think of Arcturus StarCraft 1.

        Well it's already in the article: "Arcturus is a large red star and the brightest of the constellation of Bo├Âtes. "

                  We are picking randomly within a category (bright stars) so that the name doesn't convey too much information about the product.

                  Before Polaris/Vega the internal code names were unrelated to the eventual marketing names - we're trying to get back to that for open source driver code to make pre-launch upstreaming easier.
