Look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log for warnings/errors. Also take a look at what glxinfo and fglrx_info says.

what is incredible is that I just come back to 10.1 yestarday and with the radeon module from the kernel I got 1100 fps on glxgears!! is the same kernel config!! I think some lib is missing on the 10.2 and I installed the full version!
