So I've read this article here
about the new SI architecture, and to be honest I think I kinda get it, but I am not sure what this means as related to bitcoin mining. Could somebody who is familiar with the current architecture and opencl give a brief summary? It doesnt have to be a detailed analysis (though one is welcome), just something to let us know if this is paradigm changing or more 'meh'. I know it is impossible, for example, to say that a 7870 is going to be 80% faster without any hard numbers from AMD, but a general idea on whether the new architecture is an improvement for bitcoin or not would be good.
