I'm planning to dual boot my laptop with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 13.10. I'm using an HP Pavilion DV6-6140tx laptop, which is packed with AMD 6770M 1GB GPU. For windows, I'm using a third party AMD CCC driver and it works like charm and GPU switching happens butter smooth. I just want to know where I can find the best driver for Ubuntu(for my laptop) ?

Ubuntu 13.10 now supports Hybrid Graphics. If you have Ubuntu 13.10 and Radeon hybrid graphics you can install the driver and catalyst control center as easy as follows:

sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-pxpress

You can start catalyst control center in dash by shortcut or through terminal as follows:

sudo amdccle

PS:- Remember to run Catalyst Control Center as root to switch graphics. Unlike in Windows, you need to restart the system to complete switching.

For me the catalyst control centre command is "sudo amdcccle". –  Vromoth Mar 28 at 22:30
