That's a Kaveri, which has a 2nd-gen GCN-based GPU.  I have a vague
recollection that our kernel drm support and/or Mesa support is a bit
too old for those (and newer) GPU core designs.

I'm not sure the situation in -current and/or pkgsrc is better.

The output of `glxinfo|grep '^OpenGL.*string'` would be nice to have.
As would be the relevant parts of the dmesg and /var/log/Xorg.0.log.
