ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6550 1GB

Read the forum and understand that ATI seems to be quite difficult to deal with.

However, shopping for a laptop and found a good bargain laptop that comes with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6550 1GB.

Anyone actually uses this card and can confirm if it works in openSUSE?

Look I have AMD Radeon 6970 and it works with my operating system(opensuse 11.3 x86_64). I have no problems at all. Because 6550 is from 6xxx series I think that you have not problems.

Does that means if it works with AMD Radeon 6970 then it will work with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6550, assuming they are using the same drivers from ATI.

Then I now have more choices, maybe also looking at ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6370, thanks.
