Debian Stable: [AMD] nee ATI RS780L [Radeon HD 3000]


How do I know if the right software is installed for the [AMD] nee ATI RS780L [Radeon HD 3000] video graphics device? It's on on-board chip if I recall correctly. I don't know if it's using some kind of X.org setup or using the ATI graphics driver. I want to be able to get the most out of it if possible.

The HD3000 is one of the chips AMD marked as legacy, but the Catalyst driver in Stable still supports it. Alternatively you could use the free radeon driver, but the one in Stable is to old to be recommended for that.
For info how to set up the driver have a look at the Debian Wiki: https://wiki.debian.org/GraphicsCard#AMD.2FATI
