AMD Catalyst Beats NVIDIA To Linux 3.12 Support

The AMD Catalyst (fglrx) graphics driver is generally notorious in having belated support for new Linux kernel and X.Org Server releases while NVIDIA is usually very quick in supporting development kernels / xorg-servers. This time around for the Linux 3.12 kernel, the mainline Catalyst beta already supports the yet-to-be-out kernel while NVIDIA does not have this compatibility.

AMD Intentionally Crippled Their HDMI Adapters

For some AMD Radeon graphics cards when using the Catalyst driver, the HDMI audio support isn't enabled unless using the simple DVI to HDMI adapter included with the graphics card itself... If you use another DVI-to-HDMI adapter, it won't work with Catalyst. AMD intentionally implemented checks within their closed-source driver to prevent other adapters from being used, even though they will work just fine.
