Can you test to see if just leaving the system idle eventually ends up using a lot of CPU in X? Maybe leaving it idle with a few apps open?
Tonight I just booted computer and left it as is. CPU usage of Xorg ~18%. Grows up dramatically during day.

Also, I can confirm @lotlorien words. I had no problem with oldest drivers on OS 11.2 or 11.3.
