Default ATI "Evergreen" is codename for upcoming DX11 GPU

One of ideas was why not to change the regular naming convention of the upcoming graphics parts and pull something out of the ordinary. Believe it or not, but since Evergreen hotel give free transfers from Taipei Tayouan Airport to the Evergreen Laurel Hotel in Taipei, an idea was spun - why not name RV870 - Evergreen?

The idea was enthusiastically accepted as this was the time when Red color of ATI was being mixed in the Green and Black of corporate AMD, hence the acceptance. This was the first time that the GPU did not received its numerical name - usually, ATI named GPUs with both numbers and names, such as R520 "Fudo" or R580 "Rodin", with the third name being the name of the board itself.
