AMD tech support

No, I mean the open source drivers. They should be built into your kernel.

They're built-in. You should be able to just remove the binary blob and it should fallback to the open-source radeon drivers. What kernel are you running? In 3.13 there were some major improvements for AMD support.

First and only question taken directly from their F.A.Q.s section at support.amd.com

Q. What should I do when I start to have problems with my AMD graphics card?
A. You go buy an NVIDIA like you should have done in the first place dumb-ass.

True, but the serial nodes won't allow for open-source freebasing of any kind. Update 3.14 is supposed to let you suse out some more functionality of the chunk but at this stage it's little more than a pipe dream.

Regardless, as of 3.10 there has been no reason to bother with the binary blob as the kernel driver still performs much better in all aspects. Of course nVidia's binary blob far outclasses anything else, but open source AMD drivers should work like magic compared to their blob, and have for several releases.

I don't know if New Link is pulling your leg or passively pushing the Linux agenda, but he's talking about the Linux kernel, he knows damn well there's no Radeon drivers built into the Windows kernel.
