Can anyone provide current information on whether or not it is possible to get these A-series APUs fully functioning with the latest release of Ubuntu (13.04)? By "fully functioning" I mean seeing the exact same CPU features and performance levels, from a hardware standpoint rather than a software standpoint, as, say, the Windows 8 OS does. In other words, will I be better off buying the Windows OS if I want to fully use one of these APUs?
I noticed that many people have been able to install AMD-provided drivers with Jockey. Will these drivers enable users to take advantage of all functions of the CPU and yield the maximum possible performance?
