I'm not an expert, so please someone correct me if I'm wrong:

The AMD Catalyst driver (fglrx) is highly deprecated and does not work
with newer versions of xorg.
There are the open source drivers radeon[1] for pre-GCN cards and
AMDGPU[2] with Vulkan support for GCN cards (GCN 1 is experimental but
working fine in my experience). AMDGPU PRO is the new proprietary
driver, but only for newer cards and should only interest you, if you
need a very specific feature.
