Since the last update of Xorg stuff, including the
xf86-video-ati-6.14.0, the video performance of all of our
AMD/ATi-driven boxes went worse.
The bad performance also occur with the recommendations made in
ports/UPDATING for driver "radeon". Without those recommendated adding
of options even with a working xorg.conf file the performance stays worse.
Worse means: using vlc (also after recompilation after upgrades made!),
videos are massively bumpy and can not be watched with vlc-screen fully
expanded to 1900x1200 pixel with HD4830 graphics card - this worked
Moving windows around now looks like having chunks of video content
floating around - as on unaccelerated/slow graphics boards.
