I'm extremely happy to hear that. I'll be looking into an 6800 XT then
(although I'll probably wait until the GPU market turmoil has settled a
bit, hopefully by Q3).

I think Debian generally does well adapting new tech, and although
official support would be nice, but far from a requirement. We have tons
of unofficial drivers and such.

However, do you happen to know if official support is planned at some point?

That's useful, I could never figure those out.
