    Phoronix: AMD Releases New Catalyst Linux Driver Beta For July

    While NVIDIA just introduced a new Linux graphics driver to support the day-old OpenGL 4.4, AMD just released a new Catalyst Linux Beta that finally delivers full support for OpenGL 4.3...

          Wow, just... wow. OpenGL input lag is *still* not fixed (AMD Radeon HD 6870). Although I am hearing it should be fixed with the upcoming Catalyst 13.7 (July, 31th).

          Some GPU crashes have been resolved though.

                performance dropped )

                On my machine, MSi X370 [AMD APU E-350 Radeon 6310] there is no input lag, but the performance in relation to the Catalyst 13.3 beta3 dropped from 11 to 33%! tested on kernel 3.10.2 [my kernel line: v25.2]

                      From the screen I think you don install full fglrx driver, maybe this is youur answer. Look at "wersja pakietu sterownika".

                          I'm surprised this isn't in catalyst-test in Arch's AUR.

                            Use R600 + 3.11-rc2 + Mesa-GIT with that card. You'll likely get better performance that way and you won't have input lag issues. Oh and make sure to enable R600sb with R600_DEBUG=sb,nollvm

                              I already do exactly that, but I am still interested in Catalyst development and try new drivers.
