        That's just the version they tested against, surely. They're not going to "support" distro's they haven't actually tested. Doesn't mean the drivers wont work well on my Arch box.

          nice to see that they have caught up to nvidia with opengl standards Hopefully we'll get kernel 3.15 and ubuntu 14.04 LTS support in the next version

            Aw, I was proud to say "At least RadeonSI/R600 support more OpenGL 4.4 than Catalyst!".

            I kid, congrats to the AMD team.

              How do you set overscan? I've got black bars around the screen but the option in ccc appears to have been removed.

                  Does R9 295X require crossfire?

                  I am curious if the new R9 295X is unworkable in Linux on the OSS drivers because of lack of crossfire.

                  Or more accurately, would one-half of R9 295X not work? (the second chip)

                      What about performance in games? Any known and tested? I hope small boost on HD5000 series.

                        Ubuntu 14.04 LTS works fine with AMD Catalyst 14.4. The packaging scripts have some bugs, so you might need to manually install "xserver-xorg-dev" and "dh-modaliases" packages before installing.

                        Just played it, runs fine on my HD 6870.

                        With my HD 6870, I see some improvements in Team Fortress 2 (Source Engine). Short stuttering during heavy gameplay is gone and the FPS don't jump around as much as before. However, that is with AntiAliasing and Vsync off. Both options are still unusable and will lag like crazy for me.

                          dota 2 works well without vsync, chrome works well with gpu aceleration, and no more memory leaks with my apu a8 5600k

                            works, but after some time it crashes

                              You would probably see both cards, they just wouldn't be able to share workloads.

                              It gets me thinking, though, it should be an objective of Mesa to, in the same way they have offloading, enable sharing workloads. It could start with symmetric devices, but I could see them trumping all the proprietary multigpu solutions in no time the same way DRI_PRIME did for gpu switching.
