Re: Hardware blueprints of a GPU... ok...

I think the point was that if one is setting out to debug a driver, having a good idea of how the hardware is wired up reduces the guesswork.

There will be proprietary techniques in the implementation that AMD won't have made public though patents or papers that they would very much wish to keep secret from their competitors. I doubt very much a carbon copy is feasible or even desirable.
