    Wow, just... wow. OpenGL input lag is *still* not fixed (AMD Radeon HD 6870). Although I am hearing it should be fixed with the upcoming Catalyst 13.7 (July, 31th).

    Some GPU crashes have been resolved though.

    Use R600 + 3.11-rc2 + Mesa-GIT with that card. You'll likely get better performance that way and you won't have input lag issues. Oh and make sure to enable R600sb with R600_DEBUG=sb,nollvm

    I already do exactly that, but I am still interested in Catalyst development and try new drivers.

    For me with L4D2 it's exactly the other way around: It worked perfectly fine with previous drivers but with this one I have input lag and other issues (like the game screen staying black after alt-tabbing).
