    There are Tabor users with GCN1 cards:

    Radeon HD 7750
    Radeon R7 265

    R7 265, huh?
    If that works, then an R9 270 or 270X ought to work.
    They are all derivitives of Pitcairn.

    So why only specific cards and not all GCN gen1 cards?
    And again, does PCIe v1.1 (versus V1) allow for this?
