Issue Report: Catalyst 12.11 beta 11 + TF2 runs even worse (spamming errors in the console).
Just installed the new 12.11 beta 11 drivers released today and performance for TF2 has gotten much worse.

It keeps on outputting the following error:
IDirect3DQuery9::GetData(): Occlusion query flush took 32.843ms!

I'm testing this with Ubuntu 12.10 (Gnome 3.6) 64-bit.
Radeon HD 7970 (Catalyst 12.11 beta 11)
AMD FX-8150
16GB RAM

I've also tested both games running Gnome Classic (effects disabled).
Same result.

It actually was also outputting that for me in the in-game console.

Serious Sam 3 performance remains the same (still has frame drops/freezing).
GoldenStake Dec 3, 2012 @ 9:08pm 
I'm also experiencing the same thing.
Lower performance, and also getting the error message from developer console

Ubuntu 12.04 64bit Also running Gnome (not sure which version)
Radeon HD 7850 12.11 beta11
Intel i5-620

That would likely be Gnome 3.4, GoldenStake.
I wonder if performance would be any different with 32-bit Linux.

Same here. Worse performance in TF2, crash after a few minutes of gameplay.
I have to kill it after it froze.

I seem to be the lone wolf here in reporting that I've got over double the FPS in TF2 public servers. Used to get 15-30 FPS now I'm sitting around 30-80. However, now there would appear to be a slight input lag. Very minimal, doesn't affect gameplay much, but it IS there. I'm also getting that error reported in the original post, spammed.

System is an Intel Core i5 (3rd gen), HD6850, Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit with Unity.

I should also probably note that loading times are still abysmal BUT the text corruption is gone! Overall, the game is playable now... Just barely.

It seems like most people seeing performance increases are running cards older than the HD 7000 series. Meanwhile HD 7000 owners are seeing major performance regressions.
hvr Dec 4, 2012 @ 11:58pm 
I wonder if beta11 shows the same performance regression for HD7000 cards on windows as well... does anyone happen to dualboot?

It does not.
mattyy1hp Dec 5, 2012 @ 12:07pm 
My system specs are wrong. I have 6470M. I don't know why, but 12.11 (beta 11) shows 7400M series. Sorry about that, I didn't noticed it before. 12.10 shows correctly 6400M series.

Seems to be a valid conclusion. On my Radeon HD6650D TF2 runs much better with the new driver version. With 12.10 it was unplayable even on 1024x768, with Beta11 i can even run the game on 1600x1050 with playable frame rates.
Bumbero Dec 5, 2012 @ 2:52pm 
It's not just the 7000 series, at least not for me. I'm getting the same exact error, using whatever version of the driver is in the Arch Community-Testing repo. Since it was just updated today, I'm assuming it's the newest beta driver.

That same message is being spammed in the game console, too. I'm using a Radeon HD 6870. I'm dropping down to about 10-20 FPS, when I'd normally have way more than that. I'm running XFCE, so no compositing or anything to interfere with the frame rate.

I had the same issue under Ubuntu 12.10 32-bit.

I found an easy workaround, any file changes aren't needed. Before playing TF2, go to "ATI Catalyst Control Center" (amdcccle), next to "3D", then "More Settings" and uncheck "Enable Cataslyst A.I". Now game work as at 12.10 driver. After the game (or berfore other game) just revert all and check Catalyst A.I. for better performance.
