    No "blackened" or "golden", sorry, although it does include "blanched almond" and "goldenrod".
    Darn, although there might be some sort of blanched almond fish dish. That doesn't sound very good.

    But O. M. G. Salmon Salmon is an option and for some reason Saddle Brown Trout cracks me up.

        The development codenames are awful, but at least AMD has gotten better with release model numbers lately. I hope they shot the marketer that came up with "R9 280X"

          because this shows interest in the company and its products.

          the result of the crazy codenames is maybe: i skip any amd news and buy a dog instead and quit computer gaming as a hobby. so it maybe does not turn out to be what is the purpose of your crazy codenames.
          You are off the point here. i believe he ment that if they could keep some of the stuff secret until release of the kernel, that would help not breaking NDA and revealing details about the gpus they are not allowed to. I agree that this would most certainly help getti
          ng better support on or before hardware release.
          And seriously, who cares of codenames. They are not product name and trying to make sense of a name is not mecessarily a good idea.

            Codenames are codenames. Their purpose is always to provide clarity internally - to those in the know - and confusion to those externally. Because that helps keep things that are in development secret. nVidia uses great physicists/mathematicians, Intel uses geographic locations, AMD uses... well, anything they want. Looking back at AMD/ATis history, they rarely seem to use a codename for a generation; normally for a segment of a generation. Previous codenames from ATIs days include "superman" and "piglet". So naming things after an island chain, or fish? Not so bad after all.

                  For more fun and to lose all of us they can do both Black Salmon and Dark Salmon Salmon. 😎

                    Yep... X11 colour list (sorry for the spelling, I'm Canadian) plus Wikipedia's list of common fish names:

                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fish_common_names

                    And yes, I recognize that this represents an opportunity to hack our code names. Please keep it family-friendly
