Hi,

Has anybody tried the new Radeon E8860 Embedded GPU on Linux?

The Catalyst 14.4 and Catalyst 14.6 Beta drivers for Linux work fine with the previous E6760. But I find them to be erratic with the new E8860.

With the E8860, I have either a stable display with very poor performance (i.e. much worse than the E6760), or good performance briefly before it locks up the display.

Perhaps tellingly, the E6760 is listed as supported in the release notes for both Catalyst 14.4 and Catalyst 14.6 Beta drivers for Linux, but the E8860 is not listed as supported in either.

Do I conclude that the current Catalyst drivers for Linux do not support the E8860?
