Yes, it is. 4th Gen GCN. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphics_ ... eneration). All AMD graphics since 2012 use GCN architecture. Or did I get your question wrong?

Edit: Actually there are mistakes in your list, Arjen. I'm working on it. And I've moved it to a separate topic, because I think we've figured out amnesix' hardware and he can move on to the openCL problem.

The confusion results from the fact that Radeon 570 and 580 essentially use the same Polaris 10 chip as the 470 and 480 - just produced differently (14nm) - and as such can identify themselves as Ellesmere and as Polaris. The kernel driver identifies them as "same" 67df.
"Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480/570/580]" would be better but for Ellesmere that's only in the subsystem line of your last lspci comand and it's probably too much hassle to adapt line 176.

@Amnesix, if you look up the code [1002:67df] given by the lspci command you'll see that it's your card. So it's just the name that's wrong and I don't think that matters. And if you look up 67df in the kernel driver database https://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/DRM_AMDGPU.html you'll find "Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480/570/570X/580/580X/590]" - so all of them use the same driver. I don't think we need to worry about names here.

Amnesix, please always include the command with the output, don't post just the output!
