This all applies to ubuntu with 4670 with smaller 4XXX installed also but unused since drivers crash if I try to use X11 to recognize system to write configuration file. To get starting point for writing my multiseat configuration.

They still do not have an acceptable driver.
Not on second monitor thing. But driver cannot handle 3D acceleration when new ubuntu desktop environment is running.
*ALL* radeon drivers had problems, both opensource drivers and the closed source driver. And it took extensive testing everytime to I upgraded my system and at somepoint I lost lots of data when driver crashes mangled the file system.

First year I was without 3D acceleration because of all these problems. And I really had to atleast 3 times reinstall another driver each time I had distribution upgrade just to test if things work.

I don't know how bad intel drivers are at the moment but they still have atleast 6 months to have 3D acceleration on classic desktop environment before they are in the ball park of AMD driver fiasco.
