I have updated to 195.36.15-2. And many things got quite worse.
I have no idea where to search for details or find out why it is going
sooo slow in some programs. But it happened. 

I can't use an older driver because of kernel. And so I have to live
with worse performance until next driver update.

For Example: I play Tibia. normaly I got a Framerate of at least 50 fps
and much more. Now it stucks on 15fps. And so are some other programs.
But, like I allready told, I have no idea how to debug more about this

Another one: I also have in mind that glxgears, started without
parameters on default size, gets me around 45000 fps and now it has
abouot 15000 fps.
