      Ok I don't know the crayon box in the english speaking countries . Here in Germany it is called "ocker" and sienna is just a shade you can buy in the artist shop. If you are not an artist you mostlikely don't know it.

        Perhaps, but I'm gonna take Bridgman's comment down the rabbit hole and come to a conclusion.

        Recently AMD had a partnership with Capcom and was giving out copies of RE2 and RE3 when people would buy a GPU.

        Sienna Guillory is the name of the actress who played a major character, Jill Valentine, in the games that AMD was giving out.

        For those who don't know, Oberon is the code name of the PS5.

        One of the uses of the name Oberon in history was Julius Caesar and Morgan le Fay's love child. Julius Caesar is from Italy.

        Since Morgan le Fay is from England, we can assume Oberon is from England. Sienna Guillory is also from England. So we got us some England shit going on.

        So in A Midsummer Night's Dream, from Shakespeare, also from England, Oberon has some shenanigans involving Cupid's Arrow and potions.

        Now, Cupid is related to Valentine. Valentine is the character in the RE games AMD was giving out. Therefore this is the PS5 GPU.

        Hot damn

            Dang, I'm impressed... even a little scared.

            Yep... over here it's Ocher or Ochre depending on which flavour of English is in use (eg it's Ochre in Canada, Ocher in the USA). I think it refers to a family of colours and Sienna is one member of the family.

              Also, what about AV1 decode and encode support?

                I saw a lot of TVs with HDMI 2.1 that will be released this year where we can enjoy our movies and games in 4K @ 120 FPS + HDR.
                I really see no point into buying a monitor anymore when you can buy a TV with bigger and better screen.
                Hopefully the video decoder will be powerful enough to decode all types of high quality video codecs, resolutions, framerates, bitdepths, etc.
                Last time I tried to watch a movie in very high quality on Windows 7 with MPC-HC + MadVR (high quality settings), the GPU (RX 570) was on his knees, not being able to keep up.
                We should be proud again about AMD's image quality
                DisplayPort is superior. You can already enjoy 4K HDR @ 120 FPS with DisplayPort using UHBR10 (and on HBR2 with lossless DSC).

                UHBR10 requires DisplayPort 2.0 whereas HBR2 is supported on DisplayPort 1.2 and above.

                  Hmmm. I think you're trying to throw me off with all those hex codes. The real key is in the link you provided.

                  It's X11. Most people would think government project if they saw X11, like an experimental aircraft, since Linux windowing systems are an obscure topic. Since I know about AMD's Italy fetish, I can deduct that that isn't X11, it's really XII in old-school 1337 speak. XII, to some, would be the Roman Numerals for 12, but I know it's really the letter X and 2. X2.

                  Now, y'all are thinking that I'm about to say this will be for the Xbox Two.

                  Y'all's close. See, X2 is really a reference to the second X Men movie. X2: X-Men United. A movie that was produced by Sony. But in that movie they had to unite with the Bad Guy. We all know in the PC world that that's Microsoft. That clearly makes this for the both the PS5 and Xbox 2.

                    It's a major step to see mainstream hardware "dedicated" to the Open-source
                    But, I'm still expecting the complete BKDG of Zen, 3 years after launch.
                    So I won't dream this GPU will be released with its specifications, registers, and firmware bits...

                      DisplayPort 2.0 may be superior, but HDMI 2.1 still has amazing specs, and is on the best current displays.
