    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.

    Default performance dropped :()

    On my machine, MSi X370 [AMD APU E-350 Radeon 6310] there is no input lag, but the performance in relation to the Catalyst 13.3 beta3 dropped from 11 to 33%! tested on kernel 3.10.2 [my kernel line: v25.2]
