But please, continue insulting me instead of discussing the topic at hand. I never said that you implied anything, you're taking a post out of context.
Let people waste their electricity if they want to be so ignorant as to believe microstutter isn't real. I had a friend who reported similar going from 460x2 to a 480 that same generation. It may not be as bad on the Nvidia side, but it's still there, because like you said, it's AFR that is causing it. Maybe Nvidia drivers are better at detecting it, and then purposely delay the release of frames, but then that would lower the overall "scaling", and it's still there.
People have said the 660x2 is 20% faster than a single 680. So in that case, just an example
660x2 : 50-30-50-30-50-30-50 (average 40fps)
680 : 34-32-34-32-34-32 (average 33fps)
The 680 will provide a smoother game-play experience. Because not only AFR, but the absolute minimums are also much worse on SLI/CF, and those are also a killer.
