    [AMD/ATI] Sun PRO [Radeon HD 8570A/8570M] Ubuntu 14.04 non-functional

    Hey all,

    I've recently been a little stumped with my graphics setup. I have a hybrid system (AMD), yet I suspect my discrete graphics card isn't being utilized. Here is a little more info:

    Hardware:
    Lenovo Thinkpad e545
    Processor: AMD A8-5550M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics × 4
    Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 8550G
    Discrete Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 8570M 2GB Discrete Graphics

    Code:
    ~$ glxinfo | grep 'OpenGL renderer string'
    OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 8550G
    This seems to signify it would only be using the one, right?

    UPDATED: Found some interesting info in the xorg.log...

    Code:

    Could it be an issue with the driver itself and support for my hardware? I think it might be falling back to vesa...

    Hopefully I gave you guys enough info :/ If there's something else I can throw up here, please let me know!

    I tried as well to install the proprietary drivers from the AMD Website, but they wouldn't play nicely with Unity (nothing loaded after login, only background and mouse).

    Thank you so much!
