Note that in current versions of X.Org X11, the above is only true for r5xx and later series Radeons. r1xx series cards (Radeon VE, Radeon 7xxx) are supported (including 3D hardware acceleration) by the "radeon" driver and r2xx series cards (up to Radeon 9250) by the "r200" driver. There is now a r300 dri module that supports 3D acceleration with Radeon 9500 and above, up to X850 (r3xx and r4xx series). (Tested by this paragraphs's writer on R9600XT.) Although it is really an initial thing so don't expect it to work with decent commercial games (is that still true?). (Tested with Tuxracer and Devil Whiskey, both worked fine, unfortunately a bit slower). This driver is now available as part of X.org R6.9 and R7.0. See the [http://wiki.x.org/wiki/VideoDriverFAQ Driver FAQ] at X.org. The "ati" driver also included with X.Org X11 will automatically figure out which of the 3 Radeon driver flavors (radeon, r200, r300) to load.

The latest Radeon drivers has better 3D perfomance than the fglrx. You can see the comparative benchmarks on the Phoronix site.
 
 
In my Radeon R7 240 with the benchmark utility Glmark2, with the Radeon IS driver I obtained a Score of 2050 (Opensuse Leap 42.2)and with the fglrx driver but Opensuse Leap 42.1, the score was 1397.
