ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 Advice

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Folks, I'm thinking about getting a new laptop with the above on. Can anyone advise how good ATI's Linux drivers are? I have run laptops with nvidia cards very successfully, but in the past ATI's support has been lacking. I have found with the open source drivers often things like movies don't play very well on nvidia cards and you certainly can't play things like Second Life without proprietary nvidia drivers. If ATI supply drivers that work as well as nvidia I'll be happy! Many thanks. :) (HowTos)
