View Full Version : [gnome] Ati X200M Performance drop after Hardy Upgrade

July 22nd, 2008, 11:32 AM
I am running Ubuntu 64bit with an ATI X200M Video Card.

Now, under Gutsy I had perfect 3d performance on my laptop, everything but dual-head and sleep/suspend (both of which I can live without). But after upgrading to Hardy, everything changed. I can now sleep/suspend when using Compiz, but the 3d sucks, unbelievably badly.

Desktop Wall -> Compiz is fine, games are SLOW (even frozen-bubble)
Desktop Cube -> Cube is fine, but moving anything 2d causes a white triangle at the bottom of the screen (bottom-left to middle to bottom-right)

Under Gutsy I used to be able to play UrbanTerror, World of Padman, Quake3, etc, etc with perfect performance.

Now under Hardy, even frozen-bubble laggs (when more than 3 balls fall at a time).

Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if someone can tell me how to install the old Gutsy video drivers I would love that.
