    Now that AMD has officially presented the Radeon HD 8000 GPU line

    http://www.amd.com/us/products/deskt...desktop.aspx#3,

    will we see the first programming docs soon?

    Thank you for the information.

    Well, you're not the right one to blame.
    In fact, I believe you don't like the naming as well but can't say so, ofc.

    Thanks for the information, but seriously, what is the rationale behind the first number if it doesn't describe anything anymore? Maybe it would be better to use sha1 over the pciid instead of a misleading number.

    Will the "next generation" hardware be released with an 8xxx number too?

    They deliver as promised.

    I came up with the whole thing after reading the German news site 'heise.de'.
    http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldu...p-1779187.html
    heise media has a good reputation and they usually don't publish junk.

    The last paragraph might be a bit misleading when they say AMD announced the HD 8000 GPU line at CES
    (not just the mobile ones). They continue mentioning that some OEM parts will ship first.
