AMD Hardware


  • Open source:
  • Proprietary:
AMD fglrx

This article helps you to pinpoint type and model of your AMD graphical chipset. With that knowledge in mind you are able to determine which driver is compatible with your hardware. For a potentially more up-to-date list see this list.

Assess your graphical hardware/chipset

This is a hardware compatability article. But without a way to determine your hardware it has no use for you. Follow this short and simple procedure to do just that:

  • Enter this command in your terminal:
    su -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+ version, except openSUSE Tumbleweed.

AMDGPU-PRO driver supports most recent video cards starting from hd7xxx series. See changing list in AMDGPU-PRO page.

If you are the owner of a more recent gpu from hd7xxx or above series see also our article about AMDGPU-PRO.

Supported hardware by AMD fglrx driver

Version: Leap 42.1 and olderopenSUSE Leap 42.1 was last version providing AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition drivers (15.12), historically also named as FGLRX or Catalyst drivers. For openSUSE Leap 42.2 or above, please use the open source radeon driver or AMDGPU-PRO driver instead.
Warning AMD fglrx / Catalyst no longer supported by AMD.

The AMD fglrx starting with Catalyst 12.6 (8.980) will work only with radeon chipset HD5xxx or above.

If you are the owner of a more recent gpu from hd5xxx or above series see also our article fglrx.
