Default AMD Radeon cards supported by the Radeon driver for Current/5.5

I hope this is the proper sub-forum and that a post like this is okay. I know that from experience digging through mailing lists is monotonous, and Google seems to put this forum at the top of BSD related searches. Unfortunately, I hadn't found relatively recent threads about what AMD cards are well supported (not just functional) by the Radeon driver. Anyway, I got a very good response from the OpenBSD misc. list. after jggimi recommended I ask there. So, I thought I would post it for Google/posterity.

Hello all, I was wondering if I could get some recommendations on what
the best fully supported (by current/impending 5.5 release) AMD Radeon
video card is? I'm primarily interested in watching HD video,but 3d
acceleration is always nice too and I'm looking to future proof

Anything 6800 or below, or 7 series 7600 or below. The newer cards based
on GCN architecture aren't supported as well.
Thanks again for the help, I hope this information is useful to someone else.

Edit: Also, I found a very nice article with reviews/specs/benchmarks for sub $100 cards in this category: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...urks,2925.html

Unfortunately, this is a reality of those using Open Source solutions. Sifting through online information is necessary when needs change & expand.

I just wanted to clarify that and say I didn't mean to complain by any means, I'm sorry if my post came across that way. I am truly thankful the mailing list exists at all to be searched! I just know that making a thread here tends to show up in the top search results, and so might help out someone in the future. I really appreciate the work of the OpenBSD developers and am going to make a donation, so again many apologies if I phrased my response in a way that sounded ungrateful.

The above link does not open in Firefox-ESR 24.4.0. I will confirm this corrected link.
