The Steam game 'Left 4 Dead 2' is generally laggy, and basically unplayable. I'm upgrading from an Nvidia GeForce GT 240, and there was previously no lag. Now, looking around in the game feels very 'heavy'. The visuals lag in general about a quarter of a second behind the input, fluctuating slightly. There is also occasional video and audio skipping, especially during the opening map videos. I am using the current stable AMD driver for Ubuntu.


Regardless, thank you AMD Linux team, for your attention on improving drivers for other Steam games.
