Does the segfault go away if you uninstall all AMD/ATI/Radeon drivers (thus

Removing xf86-video-amdgpu and xf86-video-ati makes X to start as
expected. Had to reconfigure my layout although due to changed in vga
output numbering.

That has been a zoo over recent Xorg releases according to which driver is used. The Intel driver doesn't bother to report which is/are connected.

What is the best to have the integral driver or the provided packages
and what are the differences? I'm a little confused on that area...

There's no answer to that. Some work better with the generic, others not. In your case a new bug is warranted if you cannot find an existing one, and probably better upstream than directly in openSUSE. Supposedly ATI gfxchips are expected to work better with the AMD/ATI/Radeon than with modesetting, but this is really a domain where the alternatives need to be tried any time something isn't right. Gfxchips are constantly changing. No dev can test directly more than a tiny fraction of those that exist.
