This article will help you to pinpoint type and model of your AMD graphics chipset, so you can determine which driver is compatible with your hardware.

Assess your graphical hardware/chipset

To determine what hardware you are running, run the following command in your terminal:

sudo /bin/bash -c 'lspci -nn | grep VGA'

Example output:

00:01.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI BeaverCreek [Radeon HD 6530D] [1002:964a]

The part in this example printed in bold is the information you are looking for. Use this to lookup your hardware in the lists that the different drivers are compatible with.

Supported hardware by AMDGPU-PRO driver

Version: Leap 42.2 and newer AMDGPU-PRO driver can be installed via RPM packages in openSUSE Leap 42.2+, except openSUSE Tumbleweed.

AMDGPU-PRO driver supports most recent video cards, starting from the Radeon HD 7xxx series.

You can find an up to date list of supported drivers on AMD's website.

For more information about the AMDGPU-PRO driver, see SDB:AMDGPU-PRO.

AMD Catalyst proprietary driver (fglrx)

Warning: The fglrx driver is no longer supported by openSUSE.

For more information, see HCL:AMD fglrx.

Newer cards are supported by the AMDGPU and AMDGPU-PRO drivers, while all other cards are supported by the open-source Radeon drivers.
