    Did they fix the lag when maximizing? Nop

    Thanks, AMD.

    I haven't had the minimize and maximize lag ever since they went to the new 2d engine, are you sure you have the newest driver properly installed?

      This seems to fix some big issues i was having with the bender ui in opensuse 11.3

        Does Heroes of Newerth works or do we have to keep using catalyst 10.4?

          (Give me a minute to read your response, I'm working right now)
          I did the usual, went into /usr/share/ati and run the uninstall script and then run the installer. Well I found out what the problem was. It appears that the gentoo-sources for the same revision I had on laptop didn't set up the build/source symlinks on laptop but they did on desktop, where I upgraded the kernel later. So I just reemerged the kernel and now it is also working fine on laptop.

            What do you mean being part of the Catalyst drivers?
            OpenCL has worked for ages with the official catalyst drivers. Or do you mean their whole stream sdk being part of the catalyst drivers?

              DisplaySize no longer works?

              I just upgraded catalyst and the options DisplaySize and Option "DPI" seem to have no effect any more. I have to start Xorg with -dpi to force correct DPI for my screen. Any ideas?

                Buy a nvidia please. You can also use the open source drivers with table 7.9 of development. The vertical sync works perfectly. The 2D works very well. However, the 3D is practically nonexistent, but depends on the Ati you have. All this we say this because I had exeperiencia Ati and Nvidia. Currently I have a nvidia and problems are 0. There is no comparison, is another world friend.
