Im setting up my HTPC at the moment, and ran into a driver issue, seems like there really isn’t much love for the 78XXk series of APU’s in open source.
It runs but the performance of the GPU is really bad, and windows with drivers runs litteral circles around it.
on my gaming rig, it was just more or less set it and forget it, never had any problems there after installing the newer mesa drivers, albeit it runs a vega.
Anyone got any experiences?, should i just buy a low end GPU, to avoid the grey hairs, and sleepless nights?
It’s not meant to be a 4k gaming rig, just your run of the mill watch some netflix, and play some games at ~1080ish p, using a xbox controller hense why the APU was perfect.
system specs are roughly.
some SSDs for storage.
16gb ram @ 2400Mhz.
ubuntu mate 18.04.
attached to a ~50 inch tv.
