4K + 1920x1200 in Ubuntu Linux

AMD FirePro W2100 100-505821 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card
AMD FirePro W2100 100-505821 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

Pros: Low profile. Low power. Low-ish price. Dual DP.

Cons: Not so fast. Sometimes flakey with chrome -> shell locking up.

Overall Review: I have this card running a samsung 4k monitor and a asus 1920x1200 monitor under Ubuntu 14.04 / 3.13. There are some permission issues with the OOB driver install, but once that's passed, things run well. I did have some instability with the single 4K monitor for a while (gnome would lock up about every other day), but that has gone away with the re-installation of everything when I added the 1920x monitor to the mix. Xinerama still doesn't seem to work for me, but I'm not really missing it... I am not playing games, so the speed with coding activities is just fine. With the 'Tear Free' option set, (youtube) videos play smoothly and with no noticeable artifacts.
