    Michael why still referring to "GCN" when they said we shouldn't:

      Because pretty much everyone still uses GCN references? And most don't rely upon GFX references... I don't even recall most of the GFX links to the GCN version off the top of my head.

        As Marek said in the thread you provided, GCN refers to the chip, while GFX, DCE, VCE, UVD, MC, etc. are just a subset blocks within the ASIC.

            And? Isn't that exactly the breakdown between which gpus use which of the two drivers?

              Arguing about the name when the guy in that thread is still labeled as ati developer and the ddx driver is also labeled as ati driver is funny. Where's ati really? It's been dead for a decade.
