    no, you don't understand. they need name before your name exists, so they have to invent something

      Communism was just a red herring

        Oh dear …

        Sure, the driver code is written before the chip is even designed. *facepalm*

          So, designers need a name for the chip before your name exist, so they have to invent something. FTFY.

          It's all about “those who make” who need a name before “those who sell”, whatever the job of those who make.

            Yeah …
            Navi 21 is the name of the chip project, that's widely known. Sienna Cichlid is just something they invented for the code so we don't know for which chip the code is (or at least we're not supposed to know, but that just doesn't work).
            Same for Navi 22/Navy Flounder, Navi 23/Dimgrey Cavefish and now Lucienne/Green Sardine.

            It's likely I'd assign you another name so other's don't know that I'm talking about you when I do.

              moron, chip designers do not invent marketing names, they have no idea where result will be placed in the product line

                you have few blanks in your theory. what are your names for Lucienne/Green Sardine?

                    Well the project names like Sienna Cichlid where there way before the marketing moniker "navi" was created..
                    The devs working on the drivers are probably in close contact to the hardware / chip designers, so the naturally use the internal project name..
