    This is a bit off-topic, but which games? Other than the small glitch in Amnesia, I can't think of any problems.

      With HD 5xxx half life 2 didn't run at all and X rather got a lockup. But that's some weeks or even months ago now. Can't really remember.
      That's why I said I may have to test again.

        I'm getting occasional GPU lockups in Nexuiz with effects set to "ultra". If effects are set to "high" the problem disappears. And this is indeed with HD 5650.

        Confirmed with Mesa 7.11-rc2, 7.11-rc1-XXX and older ones from git. And currently using Linux 3.0.0-rc7-00088-g1765a36.

        I think the problem has existed ever since I installed Nexuiz for testing (not too long ago) so it may not even be a regression.

          Just upgraded my Debian SID machine to linux 3.0 with my ati 5750. It works just perfect out of the box.

          I'm following the open source drivers development. They are amazing, and the people behind them too. From time to time I test them, but for now I don't want to hear a turbine next to my ear. I know that this is improving, and in the near future I will use only open source ones for all things.

          I want to say also that catalyst aren't a bad drivers, but I think they are more focused to enterprise costumers.

            3.0 doesn't play nicely with multi-monitor setup for me. I'm running:
            ATI Technologies Inc Device 68f1 (ATI FirePro™ 2460 Multi-View) with 4 x DisplayPort screens.

            xrandr gives me:
            xrandr: cannot find crtc for output

            Switching back to 2.6.39 and everything works again just fine.

              Please report bug at: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/
              PS: I really hate that you have to register to 98765432 bugzillas, just to report the bugs you see. No matter kernel,mesa,gtk...etc. Can't there be one site, or something like OpenID?

                Lighting in Amnesia works now.

                I haven't had any major problems with any other games I've tried.

                  disk io performance drop 3.0.0 kernel

                  Currently I have experienced a substantial disk IO performance drop with the latest 3.0
                  kernel
                  on a 2 disk lvm most significantly on random write IO
                  Has someone else experienced something similar on his box?

                  Figures see below:
