Worse performance with new ATI 13.1 drivers
Hello, folks!
I have two of desktop 7950's and in addition very poor performance in TF2. 12.11 beta11 used to perform 70 fps FullHD@120 Hz at low settings. With 13.1 I got even less fps (screenshot included).

AMD is aware of the performance issues.

They won't fix it promptly until enough people complain/provide feedback.
That is a fact.

I found running a ubuntu system update helped a bit, although I agree that these drivers were disappointing.
After yestedray's Ubuntu and Steam update I recieved HUGE performance boost. Now FPS conter is close to 120, but not stable, and jumps around 100-120, which is still unplayable.

Read this the other day.

According to Read, AMD is undergoing a three-phase turnaround with the aim of of returning to profitability in the second half of 2013. The turnaround, which is expected to take "several quarters," involves a "complete restructuring" of the company's business, the delivery of a "new set of powerful products" in 2013, and the transformation of the company to "take advantage of high-growth opportunities in adjacent markets where [its intellectual property] provides a competitive advantage."

I wonder what the adjacent market is where its IP provides an advantage? Are they sponsoring kids sports days or something? "Using our new AMD spoons, the kids will win the egg and spoon race", said Read, "it's an area IBM, apple, intel, nvidia and microsoft have ignored so we feel confident we can compete on an equal footing with the 7 year olds from East Grimby primary school and emerge as victors. From there the sky's the limit. By 2015 we hope to win the sack race, the three-legged race and to place in the top 3 in the father's relay"

I think it'll be more productive watching their business fail and buying a different card next year than posting to their forum this year.
