Well, previously in almost all of the GPU reviews/benchmarks, only the FPS was taken in account. So it made sense for the drivers to be optimized for FPS.
Last year, according to one AMD driver developer, he said that they incorrectly believed that the microstuttering on single GPUs was not common and just limited to a few games, and now they have to play the game of catch up to fix the stuttering.
