What you describe sounds a lot like the PyTorch support before this announcement: You could download PyTorch from AMD's ROCm site or build it yourself for >= 2 years now and this worked very reliably. (Edit: The two years (Nov 2018 or so) are the ones I can attest to from using it personally, but it probably didn't start then.)

The news here is that the PyTorch team and AMD are confident enough about the quality that they're putting it on the front page. This has been a long way in the making, and finally achieving official support is a great step for the team working on it.
