    Last week AMD's open-source Linux engineers published the initial Linux kernel driver patches for the "Sienna Cichild" GPU that appears to be almost definitely the big Navi 2. Now that those AMDGPU patches are public, the folks working on the user-space drivers have had the go-ahead to begin volleying their related patches for Sienna Cichild.

            That code name is a typo magnet. For that reason alone I would have picked a simpler one.
