    From the screen I think you don install full fglrx driver, maybe this is youur answer. Look at "wersja pakietu sterownika".

    I'm surprised this isn't in catalyst-test in Arch's AUR.

    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).

    I still get input lag but it seems to have improved a little. Portal is now considerably less annoying to play, but not good enough yet.

    I'm very close to deciding to switch to the open source drivers and wayland, but I still don't feel they're quite ready yet.
