So this week I bought a new video card (R9 290). It runs all modern games on ultra but gives shitty performance on ET. How ironic.

Anybody any idea? It appears that the framerates are low although i have not measured it. checked it on several servers.

 

Thanks,

 

Houwi

 

edit: i found on tweakers forum that this driver doesnt support old open GL anymore.... maybe downgrading helps.

Gonna check.

New AMD drivers doesnt work well with ET.. /r_primitives 2 solved this problem to most of people.

Will try some other stuff.

Had the Problem with lags after updating to latest AMD driver in december. Found the link from pey after some time too and the r_primitives 2 helped in the end.

 

Weird why such a new card shouldn't support older OpenGL.

 

However, would be interesing what solution you will hopefully find :)

Just updated my AMD drivers, and panicked when my FPS dropped like a rock. Luckily I remembered this thread! 

 

Thanks Pey, r_primitives fixed it for me!
