    Awesome driver

    Hello.

    I've got a huge performance boost with this driver. Check the reports here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410...3980896723122/

      Can you post the changed files pls?

        l4d2 performance is identical here (not even 1fps difference with timedemo benches).
        linux 3.4.54 with radeon 7870

        I did notice everything seems darker and the brightness adjustment does _NOT_ work in l4d2.

          For my laptop, i need to disable vary-bright feature for my debian to take control on brightness.

          djdoo => Yes i have same problem too... my control center even report different info. I think it is the /etc/ati/amdpcsdb file who get not updateded... Trust only glxinfo.


          For graphic performance, on synthetic test it is much better. But much games are still totally unplayable with my mobility 5650 (I start to think it is my cg which is complete crap...)

            Works great with my 6950. I get improved framerate in most games.

            Haven't tested if anything is broken in the mediasenter yet. Will do so later.

            Kind regards
            Brut.

              I need to file a bug report with AMD.
              I'm just wondering if anyone else is noticing the same here with l4d2 (beta):
              13.6 beta brightness adjustment does not work
              13.15* beta bright adjustment does not work

              However, the default brightness is higher on the 13.6 beta and essentially unplayable (too dark) on the newest beta driver.

                Is this "OpenGL" driver supposed to be an addition or replacement of the regular Catalyst driver? If it's a replacement, what does it lack compared to the regular Catalyst driver?

                  No, it's a replacement for it, blame AMD's silly driver meaning. :P

                    I am so freaking happy with this beta driver.

                    All issues are gone, and the performance boost with Serious Sam 3 is awesome.

                    Before this beta I used the latest stable driver.

                    Now, intro vid is about 99.9 % perfect.
                    I had to lower the mouse sensitivity.

                    I changed the in game resolution back to my desktop default.
                    ( from 1280*800 to 1680 * 1050 )

                    Screen tearing in firefox = gone

                    AMD HD5750 1 gig ram, AMD phenom II X4 at stock 3.2 ghz, 4 gig of ram, openSUSE 12.3 64 bit.

                    No more stutter with explosions.

                    I now need a benchmark to tell how this compares to direct x on windows.
                    Before this beta nobody needed a benchmark to tell it was much worse.

                      They confused me with this too.

                      I installed:

                      amd-catalyst-13.15.100.1-x86.x86_64.run
