ATI Radeon HD 5670 - Performance problem

Hi all. I have a big problem with Steam games with my ATI Radeon 5670 card. The problem is: When I restart my PC and start game - game works fine. When I exit the game and use Chrome, Bashee player, Pidgin, Skype apps, and when I start game again (before I start the game, I close Skype, Pidgin, Chrome...), game is unplayable and some elements on map in Half Life 2: Deathmatch (beta) game are sometimes white. Only solution is to restart my PC and start Steam and game again.

I have this problem with Half Life 2: Deathmatch (beta), Shank 2, Team Tortress 2. I did not try other games. I am using Ubuntu 12.10 64bit, 13.3 beta 3 drivers. Same problem is on Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04 and 13.1 and with all 13.2 beta drivers too.

On Windows 7 64bit, games work like a charm! When I play games on Windows, Skype is running, Chrome in running, AIMP3 is running, Windows LIive Messenger is running, and I have NO performance issues in this case on Windows.


My hardware specs:


CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition


VGA: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5670 with 512B GDDR5 memory


How to resolve this problem? Any idea?


Thanks a lot!
