One of the more reliable places for confirming the incoming release of new hardware is the Linux kernel - manufacturers can't afford to delay adding support after the launch, as then it would be too late. This time, AMD's patches sent to the the Linux kernel concern a GPU codenamed "Sienna Chiclid", which doesn't sound like usual GPU codenames and could be a temporary, obfuscated codename. This is a relatively common practice, see for example IBM submitting GCC patches for powerxx, which was later revealed to be power10.

The GPU appears to reuse some code written for Navi, but introduce a new video encoding and display components.
