Drivers are obviously beta or pre-beta state at this point, or they would not have been pulled. I'm willing to bet they will support all GCN cards, at the very least (and probably the 6000 series as well), in their final incarnation, even if all features won't be fully enabled on older architectures.
I have an R9 290X, amongst other cards, by the way.

As I was saying about unfinished driver releases...don't let the level of support included in a leaked build color your opinions. There have been AMD drivers that eventually supported the full spectrum of remotely modern cards started out only supporting a handful of APUs, or a single line of FirePro cards upon initial release/leak.
