[Solved] Anybody running with AMD 7850?

Postby DaveSt on Tue Feb 26, 2013 9:52 pm

I have been running Mint for a couple of years now with an AMD 5770 card with great success. I would like to make an upgrade (mainly for Windows gaming purposes) and the AMD 7850 looks like it hits the mark for price / performance right now. I would like to know if any Mint users are using the 7850 and how well it is working for them. I am hoping that full hardware acceleration is working by this point but I have found little information in my searches. Just for reference, I have been using the AMD supplied driver rather than the open source drivers.

**Edit: sorry, completely missed the proper sub-forum. **

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just in case anyone else has the same question in the future, the 7850 works just fine in both Mint 13 and Mint 14 using the AMD supplied Catalyst drivers.
