Hey, Im facing problems with 8750M too. Drivers seem to be our problem.

As of now they areunder development (I guess). Some people seem to have solved the problem using XORG drivers, but again switchable graphics remain a problem.

As always, OEM cards are supported by the OEM, so you need to be complaining to Samsung.

Surely if AMD is writing the drivers, then they are the ones to have discussions with? It is usually better to talk to the organ grinder than the moneky.

It is all very well to make money and stay competitive by selling the chips to OEMs, but unless AMD picks up a bit of the load, then they are going to get little extra traction in the *nix world.

The headless chicken market may have expanded a bit with the e-coin miners, but the real world requires increasing eye candy graphics, otherwise my collection of 4Mb graphics card would still be useful.

It is bad enough with OEMs, like gigabyte, that don't give a toss about Linux, but if AMD has this attitude, then we are all better off going Intel CPUs and Nvidia GPUs.

 

The OPs might have a better chance of getting assistance here if they posted the specific problems, and we could see if they were common to the driver, which has to help AMD.
