    Default Driver for Ati mobility Radeon HD 3470

    Hi everybody,
    it seems that AMD/ATI drivers and radeonhd too don't work on ati mobility radeon HD 3470. What I can do?
    How much time must we wait to get a functionally versions of them?

    Ps. Sorry for my english, but I'm foreigner.

    the newest mobile chipsets have yet to be added to fglrx... the last one to be supported was the radeon X1k series leaving out all HD products.

    I've got a new Dell laptop with a mobility 3450 which seems to work reasonably well with latest Ubuntu and fglrx. I also tried radeonhd which also appeared to work. I doubt there's a whole lot of difference in support between the 3450 and 3470.

    Mind you, I'm not a compiz user and haven't really had chance to try out video on it...but you can certainly run gnome.

    Have you tried and failed, or are you just trying to find out if it is likely to work before you give it a go?

    This sounds like missing device IDs. Sometimes IDs are used on a product and we don't get told about them either. For anyone whose GPU is not being recognized, please run lspci and let us know what the PCI IDs are for your GPU.

    My hd3470 on a toshiba a300 laptop has been working fine too since catalyst 8.11 I think, although it is recognized as a generic hd3400 series card and I cannot get temperature readings (I posted another topic about that). Haven't tried radeon/radeonhd since I need power management (read: battery time) badly on this laptop (not that I'm sure it is even working with fglrx, but at least I can try to activate the option on ccc )

    lspci -v reads

    I've seen 9.1 run very well on a Mobility HD 3470 card under Ubuntu 8.10. For example, Civilization IV runs smoothly under Wine with all settings on High.
