They are not the same driver, "radeon" is a pretty basic thing while
RadeonHD is a driver based on the specifications revealed by AMD. They
constantly continue to open new data so the driver is improving pretty
fast. For now it has even a basic 3D functionality and it could replace
close-source fglrx driver in the future.
In my experience either fglrx (on Linux) or radeonhd always improved
