    Disable compiz and try again. Does video work now (without glxgears)?

    Compiz uses two different vsync methods depending on the size and frequency of screen updates. Fglrx has always worked perfectly with the second (more intensive) method but has always had problems with the first (the one used by default).

    You can verify this by enabling/disabling the 'benchmark' plugin in compiz. Once enabled, even older fglrx versions (pre 10.12) should stop tearing!

      Has anyone tested it with the WebGL conformance test and Firefox yet?

            WARNING: the download link at the first post points to a slightly older release than the one found on ati.com. It downloads fglrx 8.81 instead of fglrx 8.812 - and 8.81 caused a deadlock on my system!

            The correct link is: http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/at...x86.x86_64.run

            If you are having problems with the driver, try reinstalling from this link (or directly from ati.com).

              Unfortunately, 8.812 also deadlocks when I try to enable the tearfree option. Bummer...

                Someone in this forum wrote last year, that Catalyst 11.1 will have super features and will be a super great driver. V-Sync is not a super feature for me, it is something, that Catalyst should have 2 years ago. And I don't see anything new and fancy about this driver.

                So... Did I miss something, or will one of the next drivers be a great one? Or did this person lie?

                  No, you are just being obnoxious.

                      What is so special about v-sync in 2011?
