Let's talk amdgpu - Hardware talk

AMD just released 1.0 of amdgpu, their new official open-source driver that (I guess) will replace radeon and catalyst in the future. I made a roundup of supported cards from the chip-ids in the driver itself and the developer reference by AMD.

Card List
AMD FirePro S7150
AMD FirePro W5100
AMD FirePro W7100
AMD Radeon™ HD 7700 Series
AMD Radeon™ HD 8180
AMD Radeon™ HD 8210
AMD Radeon™ HD 8240
AMD Radeon™ HD 8250
AMD Radeon™ HD 8280
AMD Radeon™ HD 8330
AMD Radeon™ HD 8400
AMD Radeon™ HD 8950
AMD Radeon™ R4 Graphics
AMD Radeon™ R5 Graphics
AMD Radeon™ R5 M255
AMD Radeon™ R5 M315
AMD Radeon™ R6 Graphics
AMD Radeon™ R7 200 Series
AMD Radeon™ R7 300 Series
AMD Radeon™ R7 Graphics
AMD Radeon™ R7 M260
AMD Radeon™ R7 M340
AMD Radeon™ R7 M360
AMD Radeon™ R9 200 Series
AMD Radeon™ R9 380 Series
AMD Radeon™ R9 390 Series
AMD Radeon™ R9 Fury Series
AMD Radeon™ R9 M295X
AMD Radeon™ R9 M390X
AMD Radeon™ R9 M395X
HAWAII GL40 (67A1)
Also the upcoming "Stoney Ridge" APUs (Chip ID 98E4)

Official source tree is over here: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/...eo-amdgpu/

I personally think this is pretty great and makes Linux overall more viable for general use. I think SteamOS might have played a role in the decision to take this step, and it might just pay off.

I myself do not use an AMD GPU right now on my main machine, but have a 5870 in my Steam Machine that might get replaced in the future, and the way things are currently going, probably with either a Pirate or Arctic Islands card.

So, general thoughts and opinions on the topic?

EDIT: Added the more recently added supported chiptypes, link to official repo
