Glad to hear that you're happy with the performance results of Catalyst 13.1.
I also wanted to let everyone know that we will continue to put significant efforts into Catalyst to ensure we deliver great OpenGL performance and stability under Linux.
You can expect to see regular enhancements coming in future Catalyst releases.
+1 you got to give ATI credit where it's due.
Also I'm glad to see there are folks from ATI out there actually reading our posts. Please keep on improving the drivers, there is still a long way (:
No, i am sorry. I am using the official LTS release of Ubuntu with the latest legacy drivers and every- source engine based game does not work. It would be nice to get a future support for it, because i am using three radeon 4890 in different computers. I always get an "gl_ext_texture_srgb_decode" error. The other games which do not use this opengl option are running perfectly. Something is missing in the opengl-set of the legacy drivers. For me it is just an experiment, but my buying decision in the future will not rely on hardware but on good software support. I wait. In fact I am quite astonished that valve never fell over this. Ok, these games are still beta.
