    You can be sure it is not shown with Nvidia here. My 8800 GTS 512 (G92) shows it correctly with xv and vdpau!

      I watched both videos on the article and I'm a bit confused. On my mobile X700, which sadly won't be supported anymore by Catalysts, dragging wobbly windows have always been displayed the way it is shown in the 9.3 video, for more than 2 years now. No rendering issues or whatever. So, maybe the article should be more specific.

      In fact, the 9.2 video looks a lot more like the issues I get when the open ati driver is used.

        Up to R500 there is a hardware support for xv, but R600+ it is pure software. So you can not really compare it.

          I don't think glxgears uses xv

            Then, the article should be more specific, as I said. Because that detail isn't written anywhere in the article. Thus, how am I supposed to know about that detail?

            Anyway, thanks for the information, I'm not confused anymore.

              I just installed and tested this release and I have the same OpenGL behavior as the other releases. The YouTube video in the article shows that moving a window around containing OpenGL will do what it's supposed to, but mine doesn't. It gives the same behavior as before. Is anyone else having this happen?

                The driver seemed promising but like the previous release, powerplay is broken for my x1600 mobility. Too bad. I'll have to use catalyst 9.1 for the rest of my life
                Why did you break something so important? Could you release a "9-3.5" driver please

                  Does anyone know how to properly uninstall the Nvidia driver and install the ATi Catalyst?

                    Sure, run

                    nvidia-installer --uninstall
                    dpkg --purge nvidia-dkms

                    and then reset your xorg.conf, on current debian/ubuntu:

                    rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
                    dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

                    Then you can poweroff and exchange the cards (if you used my install script for nvidia thats all you need).

                      Woot small gain in fps in UT2K4..best thing about this driver is getting rid of the black border due to underscan.. The slider's working here just like in windows.
