Preferred FOSS Xorg drivers have been transitioning[1] from discrete gfxchip-specific to the generic modesetting driver that was moved from a separate package directly into Xorg back in server 1.17. You might try uninstalling the AMD/ATI/Radeon driver (xf86-video-ati)

While the modesetting driver should work (and most certainly does for me), do note the recently expressed opinion on what the "preferred" DDX for AMD GPUs is: https://lwn.net/Articles/704883/

see if automatic use of the third display is restored


It won't be. Stratos is mistaken -- it is still the case that, with 2 GPUs, you manually (or some configuration utility) must bridge the two together via
"xrandr --setprovideroutputsource displays renders"
