Yup, highly underrated. Most people are oblivious to it. 3.13 has it enabled by default!

Non free firmware exists by default in manjaro. You can install it in debian/ubuntu by:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree

NOTE: The above will install and activate the radeon drivers. Reboot for changes to take place. If nothing has happened, run "sudo update-grub". grub-mkconfig should generate a new file with the necessary changes.

The driver is proprietary and is awesome. Will run all games including those from wine.
