That means that for this gen the consoles are still on a single GPU so nobody will bother coding for Navi.

I would be a little less confused if Navi was coming out in about three years, but once again AMD seem to be doing something for the future which probably won't work now, when we need it.
No one will need to code for it. Just send it off to the GPU and let the GPU decide where it should go. It will do it better anyway.
Also consoles are designed years ahead. They would either work with AMD in that timeframe or just get minor adjustments to existing designs. No new consoles should be coming out for 2 years. So it's more than enough time.

It is correct, though the word has its origins there.
So hes taking a sabbatical, starting on a Monday. He couldn't get that right...
