Volcanic Islands (GCN)
Volcanic Islands (GCN level)

1 post in this topic

All chips from Tonga onwards (for now) use the VI subset of GCN.

 

Subset adds some things that are more useful for HSA (allowing the computer to determine if the CPU or GPU is the right fit for an upcoming task) and maybe a little more.
 

The VI subset of GCN DOES NOT include Hawaii... Because AMD's internal naming for levels of GCN and their naming for codenames for sets of products in stupid.

Basically, anyone telling you Volcanic Island parts are coming from AMD is right... anyone telling you AMD is done with Volcanic Islands family of cards is right... Anyone telling you AMD has a sane naming scheme is probably braindead.
