    Download: AMD Catalyst 13.3 Beta3 for Linux

    glxinfo | grep OpenGL:
    OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series   
    OpenGL version string: 4.2.12172 Compatibility Profile Context 9.012
    OpenGL shading language version string: 4.20
    Still the same OpenGL driver build 12172. Perfomance issues with TF2 not fixed.

    I've read that they have an unofficial opengl 4.3 implementation on the windows version (that's why the beta 3 says that it corrects opengl bugs).

    Maybe they are testing this new version (that I've read has still issues) before putting it in the linux driver. That may explain why there is no linux official release.

      They have updated the version history page as well.
