    Good luck with that. If you have warranty with the place you bought it from, deal with them first. And even if it's out of warranty from the place of purchase, maybe bother them a bit about it. Last...

    More stable? You must not have radeonsi hardware then.

    Last I checked about 2-3 weeks ago, open-source drivers were incredibly unstable on my 7850. Things like web browsing and even looking at...

    Ah; I'll have to look into getting that set up.

    Was using today's 3.17 daily, and had 4 GPU crashes in a row with browsing Plex's website in Chrome... I fell back to kernel 3.14.18 a bit ago, and...

    Yeah but he said "out the box" which was a bit confusing. Out-the-box implies open-source drivers.

    I don't know of any distro where a proprietary graphics driver is installed right after install....

    Hmm, didn't see this thread before I made a thread on AMD Linux already, ah well.

    Anyway:

    - Works on 3.16.1 as-is (firegl_public.c mod was already done)
    - Can work on unsupported hardware if...

    Correction on this. If you have the already-configured xorg.conf, the driver works fine. You can't generate another xorg.conf though on unsupported hardware.

    So if you've installed a previous...

    I have Trinity hardware (7660G on the APU + 7670M dGPU). Dota 2 with Catalyst would have some strange FPS issue (FPS would gradually climb up to around 60, then gradually drop to single-digit, and...

    I don't see myself willing buying Intel ever, at least in the foreseeable future. Don't get me wrong though, I'm sure Intel's performance and power-efficiency isn't too bad at all, but I much like...

    What version of Fedora? Last I heard, Fedora had newer open-source graphics components than Ubuntu, and if that holds true, then I would expect a totally different experience. I've had little issue...

    There needs to be middle ground. As mentioned already, Ubuntu tends to be behind when it comes to the open-source graphic stack. Only other alternative afaik is to use stuff from git from oibaf's...

    But how do you get the BIOS file?

    The situation in-question is that while MSI does offer the BIOS, they have it in a Windows-only format (archive > Windows executable > BIOS File) and also impose...

    The archive for the latest 990FXA-GD80V2 BIOS only has the exe, but the date on that BIOS is 2013-09-26. Maybe newer BIOS packages have the executable and BIOS file?

    Not the most "ideal" situation, but what about just asking on their user-to-user forums for someone to extract the BIOS and upload it? Perhaps if enough people ask for it, it could be something...
