When trying to find information about open source ATI video drivers I have come across a number of different ones:

  • radeon
  • radeonhd
  • r300g
  • r600g

What are the differences in cards supported, 3D/2D performance, power management, and KMS support between these various drivers?

share|improve this question has information about radeon, and gallium (i.e. r300g and r600g). They have a similar page for radeonhd but the driver is not actively developed any more.
