    How to configure 2 AMD graphic cards in Kubuntu

    Hello,
    I recently moved to Kubuntu from Windows where I had 2 AMD graphic cards R9 270X and HD7870 that where managed by AMD catalyst. How can I utilize both graphic cards in Kubuntu?

    Thanks for your help

    i am not sure it will work. this would actually be a question for AMD support.

    assuming both cards use AMDGPU driver then perhaps there is a switch.
    more here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AMDGPU-Driver
    here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AMDGPU-Driver
    and here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMDGPU

    look slike AMDGPU-pro might be needed if it's supported.

    • Supported
      • APIs:
        • OpenCL™1.2
        • Vulkan™ 1.0
        • VDPAU/VAAPI

    • Basic display features
    • Basic power management features
      • Note: AMD does not perform QA validation for S4 (hibernation) function as it is highly platform dependent.

    • KMS (Kernel Mode Setting) and ADF (Atomic Display Framework) support
    • GPL compliant kernel module
    • AMD FirePro™ Features (EDID Management and 30-bit color) -->> is this the feature?
    • FreeSync support (Please refer to this FAQ for more information)
    • DirectGMA for OpenGL
    • Install script and native packages for all supported operating systems

    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
    Disk backup (works on newer PC): Clonezilla
