    Nice. Does this mean the R7 M260 will work out of the box with these patches or will some other components (like the X server) require some changes before that happens?

      Oh, Iceland is the GM107 competitor of AMD, Best name ever for a chip. Iceland is the best place.

        Besides the lack of trees it is indeed a wonderful place that I hope to visit at least once in my life.
        Let's hope the world is going to see these mobile chips in the real world - in good notebooks.
        I'd love to buy the AMD reference designs directly, these designs are normally by far better than what notebook vendors do to the chips later.
        Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

            It seems they are completely different chips with the same marketting name (for r7 m260).

              Corresponding PCI IDs are 0x6900, 0x6901, 0x6902, 0x6903, and 0x6907.

                My r7 360 is described as Topaz by GPU-Z

                    Just two different code names.
