Ok, turns out it's a PEBKAC.

After giving it a try with the Other OS and seeing that it still didn't work, I
inspected the connectors at the rear of the computer and realized that this new
Radeon has its HDMI ports positioned differently: the HDMI cables would never
get fully inserted because they would get blocked by a protruding piece of the
chassis! Solution: hack it with a knife.

My previous Radeon card didn't have this physical problem so I wrongly thought
the newer radeonsi drivers simply had a bug that was not present with the r600.

I'm very sorry for wasting your time with that!
