AMD Ellesmere is Polaris 10 and Baffin is Polaris 11

The source code of AMD's latest Linux driver contained a couple of golden nuggets. The driver swapped out mentions of Baffin and Ellesmere and reveals the latter is Polaris 10 while the first is Polaris 11.

The driver reveals there are at least six Polaris 11 GPU and two Polaris 10 GPUs.
There are more Baffin (Polaris 11) graphics cards because Polaris 11 will be offered in both desktop and mobile segment. As for Ellesmere (Polaris 10), we can only see two cards, so these could just be R9 490X and R9 490.
AMD Polaris series models

Interestingly, the source code also contains a function for checking if the memory is GDDR5 so it seems AMD's upcoming graphics cards will be sticking to GDDR5 rather than adopt HBM2 or GDDR5X.
