    Meanwhile at Intel, their board members are hyperventilating at the mere thought of Cheng's contract ending so they can add him to their team.

    What does this mean exactly? New cards to be developed?

    He's been there for some time, so I guess nothing miraculously new. But maybe different form of decision making. Or different choices made...
    Navi will come. Hopefully with all that it had planned, and that will be enough.

    I wonder who is leader of drivers development, because there is still not working Linux driver for new 2200g/2400g APUs, 3 months after launch..

    I think that's John Bridgman, or if it isn't him he sure acts like it.

    Also, there have been working drivers for the 2200g/2400g since its release. I'm not sure how polished they are, but I know they would be classified as usable. Which ones are you using?

    If you now working stable Linux driver for 3D, post some details, you would be first..

    There are no excuses - he's right. Kernel version is crucial to the functionality of those APUs, and your distro probably doesn't use the latest kernel.
    Remember, Linux is monolithic, meaning all the core drivers and firmware are part of the OS itself. These APUs were added very recently, so you need a pretty new kernel.
    You do know that Michael himself from Phoronix did gaming benchmarks in Linux on these APUs with what appears to be good results, right?
