Well their new drivers for the Mobility Radeon cards are a little bit
broken still.

ANY attempt to play ANY video, via any number of video
players using any number of video sources results in an instant
x server crash.

I'm just waiting for that to get fixed, but the 8.32.5 drivers simply
are not complete for Linux x86_64. This from the company
you suggest specializes in video?
