Are you using crossfire?

Question to those using msi ab for frame limiting.

What is the best way to do that?

Nope. A single 7870 Tahiti LE. I had that annoying micro-stuttering on 12.11 beta 11 (wasn't too bothersome) but the unofficial 13.2 beta has made things a lot better! And it's pretty stable too, no crashes (or issues) whatsoever the past 2-3 days.

And if you are wondering, yes single-card systems did face micro-stuttering pre-12.11 drivers. You can search Google and find tons of people with micro stuttering issues on single high-end cards like 7950 and 7970. Same goes for the mid-range cards like 7850 and 7870 which should handle all the latest games you throw at them without any micro-stuttering. Heck I was even getting micro-stuttering on simple games like Dota 2 with my single 7870. But now that issue is no more.

For me that micro-stuttering was very much playable. Don't know what others find annoying about that but I could totally live with it. It was like it just skipped a beat (or frame tongue.gif) every 4-5 seconds.

Interesting, thanks for the reply. I never experienced microstutter on a single 7970 despite trying most WHQL releases from 2012. But 2 7970s together? Stutter fest

That's very weird indeed but looks like a common problem on these forums. Nothing to worry about (nothing that a few driver updates won't fix) though. Try giving 13.2 beta drivers a go, they might fix the issue for you. Or else keep your fingers crossed that AMD addresses the crossfire micro-stutter issue in their future driver release.

Whatever the case, I'm still sure that gaming on crossfire 7970s must be a bomb! Good luck and happy gaming smile.gif

Well thanks, but actually, as things stand I'm seriously considering going back to just a single card. No point having great framerates if the smoothness isn't there. And while I'm gonna wait it out for a couple of driver releases I won't hold my breath for a magic fix. There have been complaints about microstutter from Crossfire solutions for years now. Very disappointing

what? it's an issue with EVERY series of graphics cards coupled in multi-GPU setups.
That includes pretty much every generation of AMD and nVidia cards.
