  1. Probably not the answer you're looking for, but...

    Probably not the answer you're looking for, but Arch Linux and openSUSE both are pretty nice for having stable graphics stack components (there's a repo for openSUSE for it).
  2. At the very least, I wouldn't recommend buying...

    At the very least, I wouldn't recommend buying anything non-GCN just because it seems that's what AMD is supporting nowadays. Plus when/if Mantle comes along, that'll be a nice reason for such a...

    I got my 7850 back and had some time to mess with it. Under Xubuntu 14.10; it's relatively stable with paulo's PPA + 3.18rc3. The only GPU crash and recovers I've seen were when I was watching videos...

    And I've had the opposite experience. I use AMD and drivers are hardly an issue (on Windows anyway; but even Linux is alright compared to what most people state). Meanwhile, I have a friend who...

    Hmm, I only had a quick glance earlier, but where are the KDE Plasma 5 Tech Preview images? Or is the option baked into the DVD as another DE choice?

    Chrome maximizes fine in Kubuntu 14.10 Plasma 5 Tech Preview with the fglrx-updates package; so whatever the issue is might just be tied to Compiz and/or Ubuntu? Would probably need to try out XFCE...

    Kubuntu 14.10 with Plasma 5 Tech Preview works fine (only tested GLX).

    Just tried this ppa with a fresh utopic install with a Radeon HD 7850; Unity doesn't load (more specially Compiz)

    Not really related to 15.04; but I tried the 14.10 Plasma 5 release, and there was no printer configuration. Could probably use that release for daily use, if it wasn't for that.

    Chrome still maximizes strangely with these drivers:

    Define "Most windows users". It's well known that games, and even overall system performance are benefits in 8.1. People that don't game however and have no need to upgrade will probably be still on...

    I welcome it. A major Linux distro with Plasma 5 will be nice for testing; but I'm sure most of the major issues (if any) will be handled by launch.

    And if Plasma 5 really becomes an issue, you...

    All of that works under open-source drivers (can confirm video acceleration is better on open-source), but I'm not entirely certain how feature-complete OpenCL is. For bitcoin mining, I suppose it's...

    He didn't tell anyone to do anything aside from "consider".

    There's a difference between me telling you to "drive off a cliff" vs "consider driving off a cliff" :cool:

    I have a desktop with a 200M/Xpress 1150 iGPU.

    I can no longer just "upgrade my GPU" since the PCI-E slot died or something sadly, so any and all updates are welcome with open arms :)

    (of...

    Just a heads up, but my desktop (Ubuntu 14.10) wouldn't boot after upgrading to rc2; it also affected one of the daily builds too, but can't recall when. Was fine on rc1.

    The issue is, GRUB...

    Catalyst on newer hardware is still viable for performance-reasons. And depending on other factors, it may even be recommended for stability reasons too (hence this bug).


    To be fair, I don't...

    If you need GPU performance over energy-saving, it may be ideal to use Fixed and just have the AMD GPU powering the display/outputs. Generally speaking, it's also less-problematic. You should be able...

    With the open-source driver; I've had very mixed results with my switchable graphics laptop. Most of the time, my dGPU is useless; particularly when fullscreening anything.

    What distro are you...

    I'm not a fan of promoting Windows; but at least there I can run my 7850 without the entire OS locking up randomly.

    In any case, there's still fglrx. Won't have my 7850 back till Wednesday, but...
