i have Dell Precision 3510, and i want to get the most of it. I have on board i7-6820HQ and AMD FirePro W5130m. I'm trying to install some proprietary drives, and this is where i get so far: 1. I installed AMDGPU-PRO, on Ubuntu 16.04 with kernel 4.10 -> stuck after login.
The thing is, that linux see Radeon HD8800M. I have FirePro W5130m, and i don't think it is the same GPU. They have different specs, and i even saw them compared in benchmarks. I think it detects wrong GPU, because here is listed different GPU: https://certification.ubuntu.com/hardware/201508-18812/
I tried Ubuntu 14 and 16. They both have the same problem.
Do you have any idea how to make AMDGPU-PRO working, or make Ubuntu detect the correct GPU? Installing fglrx is not helping, linux still detects wrong gpu, and i can't use fglrx because i don't have supported gpu. Also, i can't download fglrx for Radeon HD880m, because prioperiarty drivers for HD8800m is AMDGPU-PRO :/
 I found why i have this problems. W5130m is in fact Cape Verde (like HD8800m). Thats why linux finds my GPU as Radeon HD8800m. Because of that fglrx for W5130m doesn't work. I can't install fglrx for HD8800m (also i'm afraid that it can damage W5130m) because for HD8800m is AMDGPU-PRO. But AMDGPU-PRO doesn't support W5130m, which i have....
I'm asking questions only for Ubuntu 16.04. I want to fix this on Ubuntu 16.04 (or higher).
