Recently I bought AMD Radeon 7870 XT. I enabled support in the kernel, in VIDEO_CARDS=radeonsi, and installed linux-firmware. I also enabled glamor in xorg.conf (needed for 2D acceleration). However when I start X the screen goes black for 10s and then it shows random stuff. The kernel log says it hanged during a shader operation and then failed to reset. X works fine without glamor but this way 3D acceleration doesn't work (swrast is used).

So:
- 'eselect opengl list'
- 'eselect mesa list'
- your Xorg log

Though I'm not sure how good is the support for recent cards in mesa/kernel.
