    The Catalyst GUI didn't do anything at all for me. I ran it as root as well. So I had to resort to fiddling with xorg.conf which at best got me a corrupted display that wasn't the correct size. And no, adding a Virtual line to xorg.conf didn't help; it actually made my maximum resolution smaller than it was without it.

    Or it was AMD's IP it was based on. Go check out the CPU's on Wikipedia. SorrybI can't link myself; I'm still on Opera mini on broken phone here :}

    I tried the leaked driver and it's still locking up with Steam based games through WINE. I was able to play TF2 with terrible FPS (10-12) and after 5 minutes the driver locked the system up again.

    Rhetorical or not, the video acceleration of catalyst isn't that good too.

    Here, try the 1080p mp4 Trailer

    and enjoy the block artifacts. It may be that it can't decode x264 high @ Level 5 properly, but I'm not sure it happens for other techniques too...



    @Topic: I'm not excited about this driver either.
    In fact I changed to the open source driver, after the video acceleration of catalyst left me with a defunct X.

    It's funny that xf86-video-ati-git and mesa-git is way more stable than the official driver.

    Yea sure, when someone comes to you to watch a film you'll just reencode it before watching, because x264 sucks.
