Is there any alternative graphics card driver for linux ?

Product Name: Notebook 15-ac037ne

Hello !

I have a notebook 15-ac037ne with AMD Radeon R5 M330 dedicated graphics card.

I couldn't find any driver for it for linux, even the open source drivers did not work.

I can't stand Windows any more, so is there any alternative driver ?

if not, is there any problem replacing it with maybe AMD Radeon R9 that has a linux driver ? or maybe some Nvidia one ?

There is no way to change, replace, upgrade the video. Soldered to the motherboard. What version of Linux (distro) are you running? ATI (now AMD) video has always gotten the short end of driver development in Linux (nVidia has always been better supported) but there are Linux drivers for AMD video.
