Hardware video acceleration on AMD videocards in 13.10

Asked by Anton Sudak on 2013-09-07

As I know, Sausy will have kernel 3.11 and mesa 9.2 which bring UVD support on AMD videocards. So, will ubuntu 13.10 have video acceleration support for AMD cards enabled by default?

I suggest you check what is new in the 3.11 kernel as well as the default driver set of Saucy. You could always run the release in liveCD to test.

This is default kernel option, but looks like in Ubuntu mesa compiled without r600 video acceleration. I'll file feature request.
