1. Problems with access to /proc/ati - I made a patch from diff `s colleague Kolasa [publish below], and manifested that, of course, just like before - lack of access to resources by other non-root user:
2. Still slower - the last working perfectly 13.3 beta3 [my build 4 provided by our NeteXt'73 - working together with kernels 3.11.x]. Here the AMD APU E-350 lost productivity from 10 to 17%. Tested on Xonotic, LFS [running under Wine] CS: S, L4D2 - this native games.
3. The issue of memory leaks - so far not noticed but I am researching.
Further tests and see that L4D2 works better ... but I do not know if it's "fault" of the last update the game or drivers as ... and I have not noticed so far also memory leaks ... but unfortunately there are still freeezing/hangs example during animation KDE ... or in the game - of course I have turned off vsync. At 13.3 beta3 that you will not find that.
Well Nvidia already had a beta driver with OpenGL 4.4 support out the same week the specification was finalized and officially published.
Exactly. And the specification was released some days ago, but it was obviously created by its members for months. There's no excuse for AMD to not have same-day drivers because they are members of the Khronos Group (along with Nvidia, Intel and others): http://www.khronos.org/about
The simply have more bureaucrats than engineers on the payroll (like most other companies).
