Still openSUSE 11.3 64bit, using an HD4670.

I thought at first only Wine was affected, but it seems that Alien Arena 7.45 has those weird slowdowns every now and then, even facing a wall, no bot...
I ran a basic script at the same time that would output the GPU load
and sure enough when the FPS drop so does the GPU load but I'm not sure what to make of it
aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-getclocks
I've tried different schedulers (as, cfq, deadline) after googling up some forum posts reporting success, without a noticeable difference though.
The only thing I know is that my rig is more prone to slowdowns on a cold boot than a reboot (especially if it's a reboot after altering kernel boot options).
Also tried pci=nomsi following a post on these very forums claiming it'd help with several issues.
And when installing fglrx I always remove the older drivers first, reboot, switch to run level 3, and delete amdpcsdb...
