I saw this in Google News in "AMD Kaveri" section (no quotes).

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

2 pairs of Insignia NS-B2111s (front/rear), Pioneer SP-C21 Center Speaker, and 12" Velodyne Sub

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

The initial device IDs in the driver base are for internal development GPUs. The HD8000 is on bench samples yet, and we won't see AMD producing production grade dies until at least 9 months. This happens with every generation as AMD largely likes to let secrets sneak out into the market. I think it is just to keep us eager!
