I'm trying to use a HD7480D on a cpu A4-5300 APU but I get many artifacts on the screen and I get poor performance (with glxgears using the fglrx driver I get at least 7k fps with the radeon driver fps 1k).
I've tried using various kernels starting from 3.4.41 to 3.9 rc8, the radeon driver 7.0 7.1 and git and mesa 9.1 and 9.2_20130404.
I also tried the following options:
Option "EXAPixmaps" "off"
Option "AccelDFS" "off"
Option "SwapbuffersWait" "off"
Option "ColorTiling2D" "off"
Option "ColorTiling" "off"
Plus I've done tests from various live distributions to be sure that nothing is wrong on my system (getting the same artifacts).
Using nomodeset I get no artifacts on the screen but very low performance (glxgear get about 4 fps).
Glamor is disabled.
Please attach your xorg log and dmesg output and a picture of the corruption.

Just a quick note:
The dmesg shows that the fglrx kernel module was loaded.
Perhaps that interferes with the Xorg radeon driver?

Yes that might indeed cause some problems, please remove the fglrx driver completely before trying the oss driver.
I've installed the fglrx driver later, is the only way to run X in a decent way.
Without I have the same problem.
First tests were on xorg 1:14 which is not compatible with fglrx

(obviously the problem persists)
i report the exact same problem an the same apu,
if you need any extra logs let me know, or any pointers to where to start debugging

I am also seeing the same thing
Radeon HD 8470D
Here my logs:
solves the problem, but the menu is super slow, and with the dual processor, they both peak at 90-100%
not a solid option.
there's also work being done with the OSS AMD drivers done on the XBMC website.
check here for some info -- http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=174854
please look at these logs...
i think the earlier ones are from an incomplete install of the drivers:
what other information do you need???
Does attachment 86939 [details] [review] from bug 57919 help?
im sorry to ask but the patch is for the kernel or for this ati-dri (in archlinux) driver?

I'll try it tonight. Patch it's for a specific kernel version?
It was against my drm-fixes tree, but it should apply pretty easily to most kernels.

Unfortunately the problem seems to be the same.
Patched linux kernel 3.11.1
Xorg server 1.14
Tell me if I have to do other tests. At your disposal.
Thanks for help.
i can concur... still getting the artifacts; for me in XBMC GUI.
what else can we do to help?
I will say, as I'm going through the menus, the artifacts are not as bad as they've been. so there is improvement!
a lot of stuff that was completely unreadable i'm now able to read.
close! i look forward to hearing from you, and testing whatever is needed.
My XBMC system is useless until there is a fix. Thank you to whoever figures this out.

this is another person with the same issue, he posted on the XBMC forum.
so i'm quoting him here -- http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=174854&pid=1535631#pid1535631
I have installed Ubuntu with XBMC on my machine with an AMD A6-6400K CPU, but my display is flickering on and on.
Here are my logs:
Thank you fritsch for your help.
any updates on this?
is it because the technology is so new?
can you give us an update on this issue?
The Status of this bug is still NEEDINFO. I am encountering the same problems here . So wich information can i provide to get closer to find the reason for this problem?
this is what one person had to say about this issue.
That looks like gles rendering where the triangles of a fan are submitted one by one. gles does not define GL_QUADS which is used by OpenGL. Maybe a problem with wayland support compiled into mesa.
I confirm this bug with Radeon HD 7480D on AMD A4-4000 APU.
I would like to test this patch : https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=86939
but before I would like to know if my device is one of the one matching the condition (eg. 4hw contexts). How can I know my value for rdev->pdev->device ?
you have the same graphic card than me (ati hd 7480D, but my cpu is the 5300)
I have tested the patch, but it doesnt fix our problem :(
I'm affected on this bug, too. glxgears looks the same like in the video and XBMC is unusable.
I'm on the gentoo kernel 3.12.0 with mesa 9.2.3 and libdrm 2.4.48.
