    Catalyst 7.12 slows down

    The installation of Catalyst 7.2 has slowed my RV505 [Radeon X1550 64-bit] down significantly. glxgears gives me just 75.350 FPS (334 frames in 5.0 secs), and some programs, especially Firefox (extremely slow scrolling) and Gimp show bad response times. Catalyst 7.1 worked perfectly well, the xorg.conf is still? the same.

    My xorg.conf:

    Happens to me too. But with 7.12 all is going nice. No for dmesg :P

    There's still something odd going on. I experience occasional freezes. They don't last long, mostly hardly longer than a split second, but still noticeable.

    dmesg shows this error for these events:

    Code:
    [fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x0000001f not found in mutex list
    [fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x0000001d not found in mutex list
    [fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x00000019 not found in mutex list
    [fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x00000020 not found in mutex list
    [fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x00000021 not found in mutex list
    [fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x00000022 not found in mutex list
    Any clue someone?

    You'll find it in: 3d --> more settings --> Wait for vertical refresh.

    Anyways, check out your ati CCC and under more settings you will see wait for vertical refresh. i changed mine to back to OFF unless application specifies. Im not having those errors show up in my dmesg anymore and my fps has gone back to normal.

    well, i think that this is the time to get back to 7.11. if something works fine without great problems while after the upgrade has problems, then return to the old driver. you're not obliged to use the newest one. stick with 7.11 until 8.1 is out. maybe there was something wrong in the rendering of the 7.12 and thus, the fps got down. or maybe it's some issue with the igps. from the log it seems that everything works fine, so this is something inside the driver. i'm sorry for not being able to help you more on the matter.
    I take your advice and go back to 7.11. Thank you very much for so kindly spending all this time trying to help me.

    I have set all the extensions to false and have then commented out all the options in the device section. the gears are still down. re-activating the extensions and the different options one by one doesn't really change anything either. I am really lost here. Funny thing is, that Catalyst 7.11 worked almost flawlessly.
