That mirrors my experience with AMD HD 4290 graphics chipset.

I tried both Radeon and fglrx drivers with 12.04 -- and like you, saw no improvement in performance of the fglrx drivers.
Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
