    Issue Report: TF2 + fglrx: bad performance using dual monitor setup

    nicazoid

      Crossposting this by request from here.

       

      I use the latest AMD proprietary drivers 12.11 beta 11. Team Fortress 2 runs fine and fluently when I disable my second monitor in the catalyst control center. However, if I enable my second monitor (TF2 runs on first screen) performance is very bad. The fps rate is very high, though. It is about 75fps, but the game feels like 30fps.

          Problem still exists with latest stable version 13.1 (also affects Counter Strike Source).

            It happens to me too, with a dual monitor setup.

            I have an AMD 5870 and I'm using the driver version 13.3 beta

             

            Please fix this asap.

              I'm seeing horrible performance running triple monitors (10fps, extreme mouse lag), even when running in a window (1280x800).
