Debian isn't the best distro for cutting edge hardware, but nothing is
stopping you from fixing that.
I have not worked with ATI video under Linux, yet, but since AMD absorbed
them, I imagine that the support has gotten good.
There is nothing stopping you from build a kernel optimized for this
platform. I would look for the Linux kernel with all the debian patches and
try rolling your own.
