    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.
