    Don't hold your breath. I guess phasing out Catalyst support for HD 4000,
    and older HD series, should be an "incentive" to buy new cards.
    IIRC, AMD representatives said the open drivers are a suitable replacement now.

    While I love open drivers and indie games - let's face it:
    The open drivers are not there yet for modern graphics intensive blockbuster games
    which will hopefully (also) come to Linux soon.
    And I doubt they'll catch up soon. :/

      So far I only read comments of beta testers running the proprietary NVidia/AMD drivers.
      Radeon 6300M, I also have a desktop board (might be 5xxx) that i can try out.

        The Radeon HD 6300M in my laptop ran TF2 just fine with the r600g driver (Ubuntu 12.10), but fps looked to be below 20, Resolution was 1366x768. Interestingly the game suffered from black screen when running with fglrx-update.

          Thanks!
          How about antialiasing - is it available?

              their characters could run around with white ear buds on them to indicate they're on a Mac.

                Thanks.

                Not sure how slow a HD 6300M is.
                But at a relatively low resolution without AA and still ending up
                with less than 20 fps doesn't sound too promising, if you ask me.

                  It looks to be around the level of GeForce 8600 GT, so not to impressive.

                    So AMD does care about Linux, hm? Good news. Can't wait to see the benchmarks. The less reason people have not to use Linux, the better.
