'Team Fortress 2' Lag and Choppiness

Discussion created by sunnybubblegum on May 28, 2014

The Steam game 'Team Fortress 2' runs laggy and choppy for me. I previously used an Nvidia GeForce GT 240 graphics card, with updated drivers, and this game ran with good frame rates. Now, the performance ranges from excellent to severe, usually resting somewhere in between. It depends on what I look at in the game. I've been experiencing this problem with almost all of the Source games I've been trying with this video card.


Anyway, I still want to acknowledge all of the great progress the AMD Linux team is making with the drivers.


System specifications:

Ubuntu 12.04.4, 64-bit

Unity Desktop Environment (vanilla)

Asus M4A78LT-M LE Motherboard

Asus BIOS Version 0803

AMD Athlon II X4 645, 3.10 GHz


AMD Radeon HD 6790

Catalyst Control Center Version 2.20

ATI/AMD Proprietary FGLRX Graphics Driver (**Experimental** Beta)
