AMD Appears To Be Spinning Another Oland-Based GPU

AMD's Rx 300 series line-up is largely a re-brand (with greater vRAM) of older GCN graphics cards, except for the high-end Fiji GPUs. While there's already some low-end parts in the R5/R7 300 series, it seems another one may be coming.

AMD's Alex Deucher sent out patches today adding a "new OLAND PCI ID" to the open-source RadeonSI driver stack. It's for a 0x6617 PCI ID. Google'ing, I haven't seen this PCI ID listed for a current graphics card and the patches mention this for a "new" GPU rather than a "missing" entry.

Oland is a GCN 1.0 GPU that was first found in the Radeon HD 8570/8670 for OEMs and then in the Radeon R5 240, R7 240, and R7 250. With the current generation line-up, Oland is powering the R5 330, R5 340, R7 340, and R7 350. Unless these patches warere for a missing GPU, it looks like some other Oland part is coming, which is only sad since it's GCN 1.0 and found in graphics cards for sale since 2013.
