High end Radeon video cards

Billie Walsh
Is there any hope of ever having decent drivers for high end Radeon
video cards?

The standard drivers for 16.04 completely suck.

In my experience, Nvidia has always produced better drivers for their hardware than ATI ever has.  That being said, you should visit this page to start your quest to get them working: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver

That page basically says, "your screwed if you run anything after
14.04." There is a possibility that "AMDGPU-PRO-Driver
<https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AMDGPU-PRO-Driver>" might work if you
can get it to install.

Up until 16.04 I have always had excellent luck with Radeon graphics.
