ati display driver problem with stretch

hp dx5150 has many problem with debian
jessie and wheezy fail to run on it
early stretch seems OK
i've just installed 9.7, hoping it perform better
but it's worse, X Window(which use ati video driver) is very slow
at first i think the problem is with firefox
later i remove 9.7 disk to another pc, which use intel video driver
the display problem is gone (though firefox has minor problem)

i've tried non-free amd driver(firmware?), it doesn't help
gui often becomes unresponsive, cpu seems doing something impossible, it's very slow

i'm seriously considering opensuse
