    Actually this looks to be exactly like Intel Core i series

    Radeon R9 170 and Core i7 4770

    I7 = R9 = Radeon 79xx series
    I5 = R8 = Radeon 78xx series

    4770 4th generation = 1xx first generation since they are restarting over. the XX would be either 30, 50, 70 or 90 if AMD keeps their same numbering numbers

    Nvidia puts GTX in front of low end cards like like their OEM only 645 not sure how these are in the same market segment as a 680

    The new naming scheme reminds me of Intel's i3/5/7 thing. Granted Intel's current processor numbering is four digits with the first digit being generation like the current AMD GFX card naming scheme... but the idea still holds.

    You're right, AMD flat out copied Intel- but that's pretty much par for the course.
    My observation was more along the lines of generalization than specifics- I'd also note that you'd find naming anomalies amongst pretty much any line ( Was the HD 6850 a better performing card than the HD 5850 ? Does the i7 4765T offer better potential performance than the i5 4670K ?)
    I think we can both agree that AMD's naming scheme isn't overly original - now we're just splitting hairs over how many companies they are copying.

    So AMD solved the what comes after 9 problem by using
    R9 970 i originally HD 9970.
    Well and next line would be called as... ? (You know that line after HD 9xxx.)

    Then again, if you ask another group of people inside AMD, it's still the HD 9000 series...so if AMD can't get it straight, hardly surprising that everyone else is scratching their heads.
    From the press release printed here yesterday:
