Re: Radeon video card support

An RX580 is going to be too new for our version of drmkms.

I'm not quite sure where the cutoff is for Radeons.  Good Linux
support sometimes lags behind a cards marketplace debut.
src/doc/3RDPARTY says we've got a drmkms that's circa Linux 3.15,
which was released June 8, 2014.

So, cards that did not yet exist at that point almost certainly will
not work well.  Some old chips/cards may have gotten rebadged with
newer marketing names, but these are a bit of a support gray area.

OK, that makes sense.

So perhaps I should reword my inquiry a bit, and ask for suggestions on which video cards folks would recommend. I don't need "gaming", but it would be nice to have support for 2D and 3D acceleration. Also the card needs to support 1920x1080@60Hz with DL-DVI or HDMI output. Hopefully available via Amazon (since they don't have any problem with shipping to the Philippines)... :)

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/recommendations.
