Quick question: Does Ubuntu 12.10 or 12.04.1 64 bit support the AMD Radeon HD 6790 video card?
I tried checking Ubuntu's hardware support wiki information but it hasn't been updated since July 2011 - what a shame.
Any help is appreciated.
I have a HD 6970, so from the same 6000 series, and there is an AMD driver that can be installed in Ubuntu. You can download it from "Software Sources" -> "Additional Drivers". Or you can download it and install manually from the AMD website, which clearly specifies the 6900 series to have a supporting driver for Linux.
No. AMD graphics cards are supported by AMD. Check if a Linux driver is available for Radeon HD 6790.
