I was surprised that lspci and the nvidia x server settings application didn't give me the same amount of video memory for my nvidia card. A bit of googling brought me to this site. There it says that lspci doesn't show all the video memory.

So for the nvidia cards I can use the nvidia x server settings application to find out the correct amount of video memory but how do I do it for a radeon card when using the open source radeon driver?

You could install the proprietary driver, get what you need from AMD Catylyst Control Panel and then uninstall. Kinda messy, but it works...
