From time to time I can notice the flickering (tilting) of entire screen. This happened on Windows also untill Catalyst beta9 driver came out. One of the fixes in the changelog was:
Feature Highlights of The AMD Catalyst 13.11 Beta9.5 Driver for Windows:
Resolves intermittent flickering seen on some AMD Radeon R9 270x graphics cards
Now this is fixed on Windows, but I have the same problem still on Linux (Arch Linux).
kernel: Linux silverstone 3.13.0-rc5-MAINLINE #1 (closed) SMP PREEMPT Mon Dec 23 00:19:39 CET 2013 x86_64 GNU/Linux
glamor and xf86-video-ati are the latest git snapshots.
Could we contact Catalyst developers and get some more info on this. I don't see any log warnings (journalctl -b, xorg.log etc), but I can provide them if needed.
