Navi codename pops up in AMD Linux driver

Here's something interesting, an investigation of recently released AMD graphics drivers for the Linux platform revealed references to what appear to be Navi-based GPUs.

AMD's current Vega GPUs were codenamed GFX9 and these new drivers feature a line that refers to GFX10 "SUPER SECRET":
  • new_chip.gfx10.mmSUPER_SECRET.enable [0: 0]
  • VideoCardz speculates AMD uses SUPER SECRET instead of the actual codename to avoid generating hype. Navi is expected to be made on a 7nm process and earlier slides from AMD indicate it will use next-gen memory, which could be something like HBM3 or GDDR6.

    The site says Navi is currently slated for a late 2018 launch, so don't get your hopes up for a speedy release.
