    Is there any information on the special function units of Navi? I'm curious which functions are implemented. Is it merely a return of the SFUs from the old VLIW5, seems a bit silly if so considering those were hardly used and replaced with general macros. Any chance of the new SFUs being useful for RayTracing, such as intersection test or BVH building? Or would that be too much to hope for?

    Yes, lots of questions with no answers. Hopefully they will be answered in a week when AMD has their E3 Press Conference.
