Should note that I tried (still using) the new driver and it made things worse and sluggish.

Ya had so much issues with AMD Radeon™ HD 7770 GHz Edition on Linux that I downgraded my system to a NVIDIA® GeForce® 9800 GX2.

Chiming in to say that Portal with both 13.4 and 13.6 beta have a massive keyboard and mouse lag of about one second. Switching to the open source ATI drives, while deteriorating both performance and quality, allow the controls to at least be playable.

Im suffering the massive lag input on many games as well, like awesomenauts, half-life 2, portal, l4d2, etc...

As I see there aren't any fixes for intel+amd hybrid graphics...

The next Catalyst release is supposed to fix the input lag.

Latest drivers without lag are 13.3 Beta drivers:
