I have seen this too and I am waiting for the driver to be out to test
it on my trusty Thinkpad. Perhaps I will be finally able to use the card
there closer to its intended performance (what? only after 4 years after
purchase?). However, I am dreading the words about "some corruption here
and there" in the Phoronix articles reviewing it and wondering about the
price of stability/bugs we are to pay for all this again :( For example
all releases since last May are breaking suspend and crashing my laptop
again - after 6 months of relative bug-free experience.

I am bit skeptical after the four years with ATI/AMD in my laptop ... On
the other hand, if it works it would be a very good news. I will report
back once I have it tested.

Regards,

Jan
