    . So it is known for ~15 years , but seems not 100% known to the opensource radeon developers to make stable implementation, so that it can deserve to be enabled by default .

    For Unigine Heaven, yes some engines may use similar tehnics so hyperz does nothing there to improve performance .
    Oh, thank you! This was puzzling me for a few weeks. By the way, the most demanding game I usually play is Teeworlds, may be Dota2 later

      I added the statement on its own, it may be a co-incidence though

      R600_DEBUG=hyperz

      ^

      that one. And now i have slower performance. It would seem my FPS is capped at 50. Yet I have a 60hz monitor? GLX gears is 50 and CounterStrike fps is locked at 50fps.. this is presenting a slowed down / juddering motion as its not vsync'd properly.

      could that command have caused this? if so how to i turn it off?

      also how do i change my refresh? Im using cinnamon 2.0 and there isn't a refresh control option, so i changed to 1280 x 780 and that is running glxgears at 60fps .. so im thinking some of the weird performance here is that 1920 x 1080 is somehow now running at 50hz ..

      such pains running FOSS and AMD, not being able to easily select refresh rates

          That is for the driver, additional option for Gnome or Cinnamon i am not sure but i guess env variable CLUTTER_VBLANK=none should do a job

            Its a bug in cinnamon i just found (i think) if you switch between multiple monitors but dont have the secondary connected then the refresh seems to swap to that of the non-connected monitor on mirror.

            its ok now

                Wow, you get responses to 99.1% of your bugs! That does sound awful.
