Hello there. Here the xorg process consumes much more memory. I am currently 
using the radeonhd driver on a Radeon Mobility HD 4570. Desktop effects are 
enabled. Memory starts from 70MB but can reach 200MB or more. With radeon 
driver xorg consumes even more memory. The biggest problem is the cpu. Xorg 
uses too much the cpu so the fan is always on. I didn't have this problem with 
the fglrx driver.
