It's not "probably", it's a fact. Period.
Northern Islands (referred to as R900 by Theo in the article) was mentioned already when it's 2007...

Probably not, if the solution is smart enough.

I asked Demers, and he said SI should be more efficient.

And then we're back around to Emacs.

And the debates and speculation will go on and on....

I am interested in the successor to "Graphics Core Next", not the one after Southern Islands.
Wondering about the graphics architecture in 2014/2015...

I think they will use 'enhanced GCN' or 'next-generation GCN' kinda thing......
Or maybe a new CPU core with the capability that can replace the compute engine kinda thing in GCN? Just like something mentioned in an AMD patent.

The marketing whiz at AMD who came up with the name Graphics Core Next for AMD's coming GPU technology, I think must have previously worked for Intel where they came up with the name Core2Duo. Both are ridiculous names.

Needless to say that person should be retired, with immediate effect.
