Now that the Fury is released, when may we expect a description of the new architectural
features on the card ?

Cool. Thanks, Dipak. So, Fury seems to by quite similar to Hawaii, only with faster memory bandwidth and more stream processors.
Are there any major architectural differences that you are aware of?
AFAIK, it's Tonga-derived (see above: GCN1.2). No idea why the marketing press insist on the Hawaii analogy.
An user (realhet) wrote Tonga adds quite some new instructions. I'm pretty interested on a certain one which seems to do byte-based LUT lookups (don't assume my understanding is correct).
It is also my understanding (from 285-380) the chips are physically more efficient but this is my opinion. Logically speaking, they should be the same.
