That would be interesting to know for the driver developers. I always wondered how much freedom in design these card vendors have. Basically one would expect a generic driver for chipset X and Y just to work on all cards that make use of these chips. But then if X is not X but X' instead things become probably horrible. Then driver devs would have to check every model, every series, every larger charge of cards from any vendor. Maybe AMD should put some strict rules to vendors please not to touch certain things.

Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
