Nvidia isn't immune to this kind of thing either. A driver update caused a similar problem with my Nvidia 8500GT video card which burnt it out. However, I'm sure Nvidia is a LOT more careful thanks to what happened at that time.
I checked the driver compatibility for my radeon graphics and it seems that 2020 version is a bit of an issuegraphics1312×494 43.3 KB the above picture is from amd website.Mine shows it has Radeon hd and it is not mentioned for 2020 versionI downloaded the crimson version and it runs better than before, but i still experience lag like hell.
Here is the real problem with AMD's processors. With the exception of the integrated graphics test, at no point was the A10-6800K faster than the Core i5-3450. In fact, most of the time it was much slower. Yet despite that the A10-6800K consumed 59% more power than the Core i5-3450 under full load. It also consumed 9% more power than the A10-5800K, but 28% less than the FX-4350.
I can confirm, this is a problem in the kernel. Something with the "ACPI" drivers, or may be not.. Again, I'm not trying to BE an expert here. I also tried using the latest trusty 3.14.0 kernel from Ubuntu Kernel PPA's: ~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.14-trusty/
I have an AMD A8-6600K/MSI G71 FM2 Board. I was getting the reboot loop when installing 14.04 LTS. I used a workaround for this problem. I will explain below in noob terms.1. install ubuntu. Keep your mouse moving the whole time and you will get through the install. It's tough but you can do it.2. Once ubuntu is installed, reboot and press F6 during the motherboard screen to bring up ubuntu boot options3. boot with low graphics and networking.4. in low graphics mode, open firefox and download the appropriate graphics drivers from AMD for your PC. Install them and reboot back into low graphics mode with networking5. open terminal and type: "sudo gedit /etc/default/grub" and Look for this text: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"6. Edit this section of code to read as follows: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash noapic radeon.dpm=0"7. save changes8. you should now be able to boot in normal graphics mode.
This workaround took me a while to figure out as I'm newer to ubuntu as an operating system, but it has been stable running constantly at full 1080p graphics for four days now without a single crash or error. Hopefully this works for more than just my system.
And when I say "low graphics mode" I mean "Ubuntu, with Linux 3.13.0-xx-generic (Recovery Mode)" and then on the next menu with the pink background choose the "network -- Enable networking" option. It should boot into 1024x768 and it shouldn't enter the reboot loop.
It installed fine after a couple of installation trials when it would just restart automatically. Then during the post installation things to do it kept restarting numerous times. So I restarted on safe mode Linux 3.13.0-xx-generic (Recovery Mode), then booted with normal mode, when to additional drivers, unselected 'Using X.org X AMD/ATI display driver wrapper from xerver-xorg-video-ati (open source, tested)', then selected the last option at the bottom 'Using Video driver for the AMD graphics accelarators from fglrx-updates (proprietary)', rebooted and voila, problem fixed so far. I have been using it now for four hours and no restarting at all, cannot speak for longer term, i will post back daily to confirm or correct.
ps, no issues with my Windows 7, i use my Asus discrete graphics card as Dual graphics enabled with my APU, so the DVI cable is connected to the MOBO and not the GPU, dunno if this has any significance, jsut thought to mention that.
This Bug is not in Ubuntu Precise with the 3.2 Kernel. So I first installed Ubuntu 12.04, installed the fglrx-driver via Jockey and then upgraded to Trusty. Up to now, the system runs without random reboot.
I really didn't have much trouble installing Linux Mint 17 from USB stick. However after install is when the rebooting started. I concur with most of what Rick Robinson said in comment #75. My solution as well was the fglrx-updates driver. However one of the first things I will always do on a new build is to install Google Chrome. I noticed that as long as I had Chrome running there were no reboots. As soon as I would close Chrome, the machine would reboot as if on queue. Possibly the same with the default browser in Mint, Firefox. I don't know that for sure because I only kept it running long enough to download/install Chrome.
A bit late in the day, but the 14.04LTS install fails on my system too, except if I edit the boot line at CD start up, adding "acpi=off". Then it starts sweet as a nut. Oh my system is a AMD A8 6600k with Integrated graphics | MSI-FM2-A55M-E33 Motherboard

The AMD 3015Ce (Codename Dali) is a mobile APU that integrates two Zen cores (with SMT, therefore 4 threads) clocked at 1.2 to 2.3 GHz. It is the Chromebook version of the AMD 3015e with identical specifications. The integrated Radeon graphics card offers 3 CUs at up to 600 MHz (Radeon RX Vega 3). The single channel memory controller supports only DDR4-1600. The chip is manufactured in 14nm and officially counted to the 3000 series of mobile processors.
The AMD Ryzen 7 2700U is a mobile SoC that was announced in October 2017. It combines four Zen cores (8 threads) clocked at 2.2 - 3.8 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics card with 10 CUs (640 Shaders) clocked at up to 1300 MHz. The TDP can be configured by the laptop manufacturer between 12 to 25 Watt (15 Watt nominal) and therefore the APU is also suited for thin and light laptops. The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR4-2400 memory. More information on Raven Ridge can be found in our launch article. 2b1af7f3a8
