ATI Technologies AMD 'Northern Island' Codenames and ASIC #'s Appear In Cat 10.8

Just install them backwards and you hear...

So what are we looking at here? The contents of the file atiicdxx.da_, expanded and gone through with a fine-tooth comb.

The numbers in parentheses apparently refer to ASIC numbers, not product model numbers. Lots of guessing to go on now - What happened to Southern Islands? Will these be mobility or discrete? Does this include APU products? Does the GL designation refer to FirePro cards? What does Gemini mean? Why is it against so many entries? What does LP mean? Is it all an elaborate ruse to flush out a mole?

Give us your best shot in the comments!

Southern Islands is a ruse, NI is actually what will appear shortly.

Not actually.

I count six incidences of Gemini in that listing.... sure it's dual GPU?

LP stands for Little People, a card specifically for short people / dwarves as there is an untapped market there and dwarves have plenty of gems and gold squirrelled away for buying them.

Looks like the [board product, ASIC used]. I think the number listed is for the board and not the ASIC.

I had a bit of a feeling that this whole SI thing was a smokes and mirrors. We will see what happens though. Perhaps SI is real and the mill has it in reverse, where SI was the original plan.

MY best guess is as follows:

Onega, Turks IGP/APU?

Cayman - 6800 series
Antilles - 6900 series (dual GPU Cayman)
Blackcomb - 6700 series, Gemini is Mobility and/or CrossfireX with APU
Barts - 6600 desktop series
Whistler - 6500 series, Gemini is Mobility and/or CrossfireX with APU
Seymour - Mobility 6600
Caicos, Caspian - Mobility 6400

XT is 6x70, Pro is 6x50, LE is 6x30; LP is low power, notice only one LE (Cayman) with LP missing; LP present in 6700 through 6500 for mobility (use with current Althon II / Phenom II mobility CPU's in mainstream/premium notebooks).
