Find out my graphics card?

I am trying to get proprietary drivers to install on Fedora 25. I have figured out that I have an AMD R7 Carizzo-L driver, but I have no idea what type, Like M270 or what have you. Is there a way to find this information out? AMD has several drivers, unfortunately my computer manufacturers specifications list is not specific on this issue.

Re: Find out my graphics card?

try issuing the following command in terminal:

Code:
lspci -v
here is the output for my AMD hardware, it gives the correct part information.

Code:
00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Kabini [Radeon HD 8400 / R3 Series] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Kabini [Radeon HD 8400 / R3 Series]
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 35
    Memory at c0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
    Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=8M]
    I/O ports at f000 [size=256]
    Memory at feb00000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256K]
    Expansion ROM at feb40000 [disabled] [size=128K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: radeon
    Kernel modules: radeon
with this information go to the AMD website and you can check the release notes for the drivers to find the appropriate one.

Re: Find out my graphics card?

Unfortunately, I'm still only able to find out that it belongs to the Carizzo family, here it isn't even listsed as Carizzo-L. Perhaps you already have proprietary drivers installed?

Code:
VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Carrizo (rev c9) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 81f9
	Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 35
	Memory at e0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
	Memory at f0800000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=8M]
	I/O ports at 4000 [size=256]
	Memory at f0500000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256K]
	Expansion ROM at 000c0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
	Capabilities: <access denied>
	Kernel driver in use: amdgpu
	Kernel modules: amdgpu

Re: Find out my graphics card?

i can assure you they are the opensource ones. it uses different firmware modules because it's a different generation of hardware. what is the hp notebook model you have? should have the full details on a sticker underneath if not sure.

Re: Find out my graphics card?

The laptop model is the HP 15-ba00cy. I don't know what you mean by the open source ones, I{ went to the AMD website and they listed RHEL, Ubuntu, CentOS, and Linux; however these were distributed by graphics card model. And I've looked at the HP website, it only says AMD R7 in it's specifications. This is really bugging me!

Ah okay after looking into this further, you are already using the only officially available driver for Fedora. the proprietary driver development by AMD is not done to the same schedule as Fedora kernel releases. They also do not support all hardware with proprietary amdgpu pro drivers for linux, only the high-end devices. your system could use ubuntu 14.04 LTS and other distributions based on it like linux mint rosa with proprietary 15.9 catalyst drivers from AMD but that's because kernels are older for ubuntu LTS releases.

even the most recent ubuntu uses the opensource amdgpu driver you already have for your hardware

Re: Find out my graphics card?

Well, it's not what I want to hear, but it's good to know. I had thought of installing a 14.04LTS driver, but couldn't decide which to install and just opted not to I'm only just returning to Linux. I don't need to create any problems for myself, well thank you guys. Hopefully AMD will come out with some drivers soon.

Re: Find out my graphics card?

in the ubuntu driver manager i generally go for the updates version of the driver. it works fine. don't hold your breath over amd developing any newer drivers. the catalyst 15.9 gets occasional patches but not for newer kernels. it's just stability and security updates for what they already support. e.g. up to kernel 3.19.XX
