    - a bit more optimization / performance

    and a nice gui (extending radeonprofile) with:
    - overclocking / fan control
    - different game profiles
    - 75 hz support (but I think thats up to mesa or the KDE monitor config tool)
    - full color / video settings
    - what did I forget?

    wishful thinking ... however... so far so GOOOD guys! Keep it going! Big thanks to the Devs out there!
    yeah I forgot some:
    - frame pacing (when using crossfire)
    - proper 4k support - does anyone know the state of this? Michaels test back in november dealt only with proprietary drivers.
    - software eyefinity for gaming (not hardware eyefinity for connecting 6 monitors for extended desktop, but the thing where the OS believes that there is only one display with the combined resolution and lets the game render with that, described here: http://www.amd.com/de/products/techn...ages/faqs.aspx)

      BTW: RV7xx was affected from the same problem, and barely anybody noticed.

        What i really find weird is that nobody noticed the xserver crashes with mpeg2 decoding

          I do have xserver crash and not only with mpeg2 decoding, but also h264 HD videos.
          Not reported them yet just because I don't have time to investigate.

            Option "AmdFanboyMode" "true"

            maybe just because some people didn't have this issue or didn't know about it.
            i don't run into xorg crashes and uvd always works for all my movie stuff.
            maybe i'm so lucky lucky lucky or AMD loves me more

              Well my hd 5670 (evergreen) can not decode mpeg2 in hardware and the alternative shader implementation crashed. It has nothing to do with your special case, but when much more ppl would use it there should be some with a similar gpu and similar problems. Well when some only use mplayer maybe they did not enforce mpeg2 via vdpau, but when you try the same with xbmc then the system crashes much faster

                I don't care. My laptop has intel+radeon.
                - linux mantle support
                Show me any linux native application that can use it. Even catalyst doesn't support it under linux.
                - OpenGL 4.4
                Show me any real application which uses it on Linux.
                - for the R series true audio support (does someone know if this is planned / work in progress?)
                I don't have R series. So for me it is also irrelevant.
                - official SteamOS support replacing catalyst!
                This is SteamOS problem. Normal distros have full support of open source drivers.
                - a bit more optimization / performance
                It is already fast enough for most users.

                and a nice gui (extending radeonprofile) with:
                - overclocking / fan control
                - different game profiles
                - 75 hz support (but I think thats up to mesa or the KDE monitor config tool)
                - full color / video settings
                radeon-profile has some of these features.

                The bottom line is that for me radeonsi is already much better than catalyst.

                  How's RadeonSI with OpenCL? Is anyone using it for mining? What are the numbers compared to Catalyst? I'm just asking, no hard tone here, just an innocent question.

                    It works well when mining bitcoin (~80% of catalyst) but it doesn't mine scrypt which makes it completely useless.
                    ## VGA ##
                    AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
                    Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

                      I haven't tried it with fglrx nor radeonsi. But truly speaking to use a laptop for bitcoin mining seems like a little bit dubious idea for me.
