My laptop has a Radeon HD 5470. Xorg and consoles work perfectly. There
is little or no hardware acceleration though. This means no 3D games for
sure. I remember videos being rather jerky in full screen as well but
with the most recent version of the ati driver, even full HD videos seem
to run just fine.
The only thing I miss is DPMS support. The screen will go blank but the
backlight will never turn off. My workaround is to restart Xorg with the
vesa driver and run "vbetool dpms off" from the command line whenever I
want to keep the laptop running with the screen off.
