    I don't mind the name "Radeon 7 Series", it's the dumb "7" in the fake logo that was posted that I didn't like.

    Well that and all the tree names. Is it supposed to be a whole "going green" thing? I just don't get it. Were the marketing guys sitting around brainstorming about what best represents the new mighty awesome gaming power and excitement of their new line-up, and they came up with TREES?

    I don't get it. :(

    It's just internal code names...

    That is exactly the point I was attempting to make!

    Right, I wasn't implying that tessellation creates a new problem. It will likely be more frequent however...

    I'm 99% sure that they're wrong - not necessarily spec-wise, but naming wise - as in, I'm quite positive on "HD5870" and "HD5850", or whatever the names will be, share the same chip

    Not to mention that first calling it "Radeon 7 series" and then the old names doesn't sound right at all, I mean would we be buying "Radeon 7 HD 5870"'s next?

    Either one, the HD5000 or the 7 is wrong. Maybe both. Who knows?

    That should be "Radeon II Series" -- to bound more properly with the Phenom II marketing line. :D

    Plenty more like that in http://developer.amd.com/gpu_assets/R700-Family_Instruction_Set_Architecture.pdf

    There's also atomics for UAV:
    Code:
    uav_read_cmp_xchg uav_read_xchg     uav_read_xor      uav_read_or      uav_read_and      uav_read_umax     uav_read_umin     uav_read_max      uav_read_min      uav_read_rsub     uav_read_sub      uav_read_add      uav_cmp     uav_xor     uav_or      uav_and     uav_umax    uav_umin      uav_max     uav_min     uav_rsub    uav_sub     uav_add      uav_struct_store  uav_raw_store     uav_store   uav_struct_load      uav_raw_load      uav_load  
    and atomics for LDS:
    Code:
    lds_read_cmp_xchg lds_read_xchg     lds_read_xor      lds_read_or      lds_read_and      lds_read_umax     lds_read_umin     lds_read_max      lds_read_min      lds_read_rsub     lds_read_sub      lds_read_add      lds_cmp     lds_xor     lds_or      lds_and     lds_umax    lds_umin      lds_max     lds_min     lds_rsub    lds_sub     lds_add      lds_store_vec     lds_load_vec      lds_store   lds_load
