    I haven't seen that in a long time, but it's LCD displays now and they take some time to mode switch, so there could just be a black screen in that instant most likely.

    P.S. This is about images...

    I am sorry to be negative, but I don't think the latest drivers benefit the 5000 series at all. For me, with my HD 5870, there is a serious performance degradation with latest fglrx betas (13.11 Beta...

    You're of course right that an easy peasy remote root exploit is probably the worst sort of thing overall, but in the context of this particular situation, with OpenSSL, it's of dire severity because...

    I remember in the good old days, flaws in the DRM drivers like not clearing graphics memory and having images appear on the screen at untimely moments. For example while mode switching, or shutting...

    I also got on the beta (I didn't realize there was one until I saw someone else say it) and found that it improved performance, and even better last night after the last update.

    I'm still using...

    Bear in mind that we're talking about different hardware here. Mine is an HD 5870, an old chipset. You're in the 7000 series, the newer drivers may be better for you.

    That often happens... the...

    I have no problem (essentially) saying "a bunch of creeps from China have the audacity to try to patent this"

    If Chinese people are offended, do they group themselves in with these creeps, or do...

    The very best fglrx result for me was with "Catalyst 13.11 Beta V9.4". The next and any newer Betas (including 14.2 which was the last one I tried, when I decided that fglrx was intolerable bullshit)...

    Yep, it was a lesson for me not to blame the games. In a previous thread some time ago, someone set me straight about Left4Dead 2... I was saying what a crappy port it was, and they told me it was...

    Anal edit policy here, 5 minute time limit.

    Anyway, I neglected to say that I run it at 1920x1080 with CPU speed set to "Ultra", GPU speed set to Ultra but Memory usage set to Medium (I just have...

    I play Serious Sam 3 with a Radeon HD5870 card, currently using the Gallium radeon driver in the kernel (currently 3.14.0-rc8) and Mesa 10.2.x

    It's not great performance, but this is a game that...

    Ubuntu is a terrible distribution in my books. Dumbed down yet crippled up with arbitrary difficulty and complexity. They use a hybrid init system with upstart and sysvinit functionality, but don't...

    I haven't noticed any extra noise. It's possible the fan may be running more, as the card does seem to run pretty cool (which was one of my concerns, that kept me from ditching fglrx a bit longer)...

    I have a Mint 16 install that I use for games. I recently got sick and tired of fglrx and the nonsense I have to go through every time I want to use a newer kernel, and the performance regressions...

    Pusaudio is rubbish and I curse those distributions for using it. I had to disable it (not only the sound server, but you also have to give a directive to stop it from auto spawning), and change my...

    Yes, but this isn't Windows. We expect much better hardware support out of the box from Linux distributions.

    Sorry, that's an asshole move from Canonical and they deserve all the scorn and...

    That aspect of it would be good, if that benefit is realized. Maybe in 5 years there might be enough supported AMD PC graphics hardware out there for this to be significant, and an incentive to...

    Yes, the open source drivers work very well nowadays for desktop stuff and some games. I want to play games like Metro Last Light though.

    I noticed that things like hardware accelerated web...

    Umm yeah, right. Instead of fixing their drivers they think they can implement their own new API? I agree with the others saying that game developers aren't going to be inclined to use this. They'd...

    I appreciate you taking the time.

    I do understand how it works, I just don't like it. Sure, if all I did was use the distro kernels and let it run the scripts it would mostly work. In some distros...
