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!

Have fun, be safe! Sláinte!
