        wait for kernel-3.11-rc4 and get mesa stack from git, even my 4350 passive is handling 1920x1080 + 1366x768 dual screen setup with kwin full whistles[raster+gl3.1+advanced vsync] like a freaking boss this days.

        btw UVD works very well too even on radeonSI, just get mplayer2+SMplayer2 sit and enjoy awesome

          for flash:
          "This should be about it... but it actually still didn't work for me. But I found the following fix that miraculously solved it for me: create the file /etc/adobe/mms.cfg, and write in it:
          EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1"

          it do the magic in with r600g/radeonsi with UVD

          another solution is use google-chrome with pepper flash, is bastardically faster compared to regular flash

              well depending your OS, but if you use ubuntu basically kernel and the whole graphic stack, i think there are some external repos that do the heavy lift but i don't use ubuntu so im not sure[ask an ubuntuer]

              if you use Arch, just download the latest of each from here http://pkgbuild.com/~lcarlier/mesa-git/x86_64/ and make an pacman -U *.tar.xz, restart and enjoy awesome

                Yea, these results are quite amazing indeed. r600g even surpassed Catalyst in a few tests. And it's not even *that* far from Windows.

                      if first install read here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_Guide and if you use KDE Apper is a very nice package manager

                        an nice trick for when arch is installed

                        nano /etc/default/grub

                        find GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" and make it

                        GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="irqpoll threadirq radeon.dpm=1 quiet"

                          I look forward to the days when AMD deprecates Catalyst

                          Someone mentioned 2015, I think 2016 is more realistic, but hey let's not quabble intensely over a single digit.

                          I can't wait until we can get those developers into the OSS fold!

                                for UVD remember to install libvdpau and libva-vdpau-driver otherwise mplayer/vlc will give you hell. in the case of smplayer set video to vdpau and select the codecs except WMV3[used to hang gpu last time i tried] and Mpeg1/2[mpeg1 is broken, mpeg2 works fine]
