Been having problems with Garry’s Mod and TF2 specifically, but generally, with all Source Engine games.
Frame rates are stuttering on a modern setup:
-Phenom II x4 @ 3.0GHz
-Radeon HD 6850
You get the idea.
I will say that I have just installed Windows freshly on this computer replacing Lubuntu, which is now on my laptop.
Before I reinstalled Windows, every game played on the Windows install before was 200fps in older games like these.
Now with the reinstall, games stutter. There are no other visible problems however.
I have just one theory for now:
The newest versions of the Radeon drivers are causing this, 13.0 was just released and I’m using it.
Should I rollback to a previous driver?
EXTRA: This is NOT normal, TF2 is lagging, not on max settings, but while on LOWEST, same for Gmod.
ttt_67thway_v3 lags on lowest graphical settings.
If you need extra info I will share it with you.
Did a quick Google search and did not find anyone complaining about new AMD drivers.
Someone in fast threads told me to post in tech support, but it was a Gmod/ TF2 related issue so I came here.
