Even the older GCN 1.0 isn't yet supported, and the A4 3300, from what I understand, isn't even GCN (hard to tell with their convoluted naming), so if that's right, it'll never be supported by amdgpu.
I read on the AMD website that it was supported.

That's odd, everything I can find about it says it's not a GCN APU. But I don't rule it out, I can't follow what is what with AMD's horrible naming architecture.

happydog500,

I simply posted that link in order that other members could access the information that you referred to in your earlier post (#11).

It was not intended to be a solution.

It happened again. Read the AMD drivers got updated again to fix video problems.

^If it's talking about fixes for the amdgpu kernel module, it's not relevant to your GPU. Maybe you should give specific links instead of saying, "I read <blah blah>."
The bottom line is that if you want to try the latest fixes for the radeon driver, you need to try the latest kernel. (kernel 4.9 was just released.)
If that doesn't fix the problem, it's bug report time. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist...n&product=xorg

I have the same Llano-based APU as OP in my laptop. It is not a GCN part. It is a Terascale2/VLIW5 part. I don't know exactly what the OP saw on AMD's website (again, links would help). It also wouldn't be the first time ATI/AMD's site was wrong/outdated when it came to Linux driver info.

+1 on AMD's horrible naming scheme. Wikipedia is kind of useful though. They have a list of Radeon cards. Some weirdos in AMD seem to generate random names for things that already havr names. I have an R4xx type AMD GPU which is also called X1250, RS690M, and some video card name which escapes me presently. What I have called it is probably printable, but only marginally. It's not much good.
