            Bug ID: 100743
           Summary: Support for Radeon HD 6970M
           Product: xorg
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
          Assignee: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
          Reporter: holocronweaver at gmail.com
        QA Contact: xorg-team at lists.x.org

The man page for the radeon driver lists mostly desktop GPUs, so which mobile
GPUs are supported is unclear.

For my particular case, my Radeon HD 6970M is based on the desktop HD 6850,
which is listed as being supported. However the GPU, which worked fine on
Ubuntu 15.04 with fglrx drivers, has no supported driver found on Ubuntu 16.04
which has dropped fglrx in favor of the radeon and amdgpu drivers.

Is the HD 6970M supported? Is there a way I could force the driver to work with
the 6970M for purpose of testing?

I request that supported mobile GPUs be added to the Radeon driver man page.
