Hey there,


I've got a HD6950 which should handle a game like TF2 easily but the performance is not very good. Although i have more than 60 frames/sec pretty much all the time the game feels very choppy. On windows everything runs pretty smoothly, I hope you'll address that issue in the future drivers since the number of people with the same problem is very high.
