That's probably new enough to be supported by the default Xorg driver. Purge the
nouveau Xorg driver and all traces of the proprietary driver, and Xorg should
automatically use the default (modesetting, which will show up in Xorg.0.log as
modeset(0)). I have no complaints using the modesetting driver, but I don't use
laptops or suspend either.
