    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Pre-HD5000"
    Driver "radeon"
    EndSection

    You're welcome!

    Last time I check Radeon was blacklisted for WebGL on Chrome. Is the situation changed? Do I could play Angry Bird Chrome on Radeon now using WebGL like I play in Catalyst?

    Trolololololololol i already use it.

    but better use:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Card0"
    Driver "radeon"
    Option "ColorTiling" "1"
    Option "ColorTiling2D" "1"
    EndSection

    then you get colortiling to

    and :

    R600_GLSL130=1
    R600_STREAMOUT=0
    PCIE_GEN2=1


    in your .pam_environment file in your home dir.

    then you get PCIe2 and openGL3 to.

    I really wish my laptop didn't over heat and shut down using open source drivers....... This could stop my updating kernel and distro.

    Thank you very much for that! I did not know that it was this easy to boost my GPU performance.

    I do own a HD 4870, no more supported.
    So, either AMD releases legacy driver to support from time to time newer releases of Xorg and minimal support or AMD doesn't support it anymore at all and as soon as I can't use my card i will buy a new one, but I will buy Nvidia.

    If no support at all is ever provided by AMD, then I will take years to even reconsider buying AMD again.
