    Exclamation AMD Radeon HD 7790 graphics/video card - how well will it work on Linux?

    I got an AMD Radeon HD 7790 (MSI) graphics/video card. I was wondering: how good is support for it on Linux?

    Will it even work? Are there any bugs? Will I be missing some features?

    Like 3D acceleration, general performance, VDPAU, OpenGL support, CrossFire support, multiple monitor support - that kind of stuff.

    How could I check whether the card supports these features once I'm running Linux?

    The distribution doesn't matter, but I'd prefer Fedora or Archlinux.

    I am also willing to use the proprietary driver, depending on which one works better.

    Also, I found this page: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...eon_linux.aspx for the Catalyst driver on Linux. Does that driver support the 7790? Is it some generic driver? How does it differ than this "performance driver": http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...ceDriver.aspx?
