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.
