There will eventually be full support for r6xx and r7xx hw, but at the
moment we are tied up with the IP review for the documentation
release.  Internally we have basic stuff like triangles and textures
working, so as soon as everything gets signed off on, we should be
able to push out some basic 3D demos and soon after basic accel (EXA,
textured video).

If you need acceleration in the meantime, your card should work fine
with the AMD proprietary driver.
