    Let's not forget that legacy Warp3D support gets lost on OS4 with jumping from a GCN1-based card to a GCN4-based card like your RX550 also.

    What does that mean?

    True, and the MorphOS hardware compatibility page clearly states which cards are supported in 2D+3D, 2D+overlay or just 2D.

    > Linux performance suffers too with anything less than a series 6000 card

    The author of comment #14 pointed out that Linux is good enough with anything from R600 (= HD2000 series) up and that Evergreen cards (= HD5000 series) are among the best supported. Maybe this is different between x64 Linux and PPC Linux?

    > They [...] said they have no interest in supporting newer graphics cards

    Is this what they really said or just what you think they said? I guess it's more about the available developer resources than about interest per se.
