    Default AMD HD 7000 "RadeonSI" Runs Well With Fedora 19

    Phoronix: AMD HD 7000 "RadeonSI" Runs Well With Fedora 19

    Fedora 19 is the first tier-one Linux distribution shipping with decent "out of the box" support for the AMD Radeon HD 7000 "Southern Islands" series graphics cards with the out-of-the-box Linux graphics driver and Gallium3D-based acceleration...

    Default I already use it on Arch

    I already use radeon 7770 with OSS driver for a while. And yes, it is almost usable. But it is still not for daily usage. For example it is almost impossible to use opera browser or libreoffice (charts and so on). And very often my desktop completely freeze for a few seconds.

    I try some steam games too, however none of it works. But Team Fortress 2 almost start .

    I already use the radeonsi on a fully updated Fedora 18 box, which basically has all the base components of Fedora 19.
    Still a few bugs to iron out, lke the occasional corruption when draing new windows, but never had stability issues.
    All this on an HD7850 card.

    What is a tier 1 linux distribution?

    Archlinux by the way already had mesa built with radeonsi for some time now:
    https://projects.archlinux.org/svnto...=packages/mesa
    llvm 3.3 with --enable-experimental-targets=R600 is in the repositories and xf86-video-ati is compiled with glamor.

    Just saying.

    What's a PSA? Never heard that term, and googling it is inconclusive.

    PSA = Public Service Announcement, I think it's a term that's mostly used in the USA.

    Tier 1 would be Ubuntu, SUSE, Mint, and Fedora -- distros that are targeted at "the usual" computer users and that get a good amount of news coverage
    Tier 2 would be CentOS, Debian, Sabayon and PCLinuxOS -- distros that don't get as much news coverage for one reason or another or arent aimed at the "average person"
    Tier 3 would be Gentoo, Arch, Slackware, LinuxFromScratch, etc -- Distros that dont have a real public image, no two systems are alike, the tinkerers, etc.

    Least thats how i group them *Shrugs* others may disagree
