I figured the drivers weren't correct (same as OP!). Amdgpu-pro Driver DANG! Furthermore the Radeon driver supports some older chipsets that fglrx does not. GAH!
oh well. before you get your Nvidia, would you make an attempt at installing the ATI driver (if you havn't already done so)? Ubuntu 16.04 Radeon Driver Please install the AMD driver appropriate for you AMD hardware, or configure using aticonfig. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What to do? Amdgpu Driver Without this package installed, poor 2D/3D performance in the radeon driver is commonly experienced.

I must have been lucky because I got my 3d acceleration working, so I thought i should post a small "how to" for installing ATI drivers in suse. See if that fixes everything. I'd love to make it work properly. http://reschecker.com/radeon-driver/ati-radeon-x2300-driver-for-linux.html To do so, edit /etc/default/grub and add the 'radeon.dpm=1' to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line, so it would look something like: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash radeon.dpm=1"After you save/quit the text editor, update grub: sudo update-grub
