To my knowledge, reducing latency between the cards syncing would improve it. I don't think it will ever be fixed completely.
If anything microstutter has been getting worse it seems (or maybe it's just because more people are aware of it). I didn't notice it on my 2x 8800GTX until someone pointed it out.. ever since it's all I see on multi-gpu setups.

It would be a fascinating experiment to show footage from random singe and multi-GPU computers to supposed MS "experts" and see if they could actually discern which setups were multi or single...
Every multi GPU setup on the market has microstutter, this is fact. Depending on drivers, the game, and what FPS you are running affects how noticeable it is but it will always be there. Some people will never notice it (because it can be very minor in certain situations), other's will always notice it. It has nothing to do with the GPU and everything to do with the delay between the cards communicating - this delay will likely always exist because it's nearly impossible to get this to .000ms. There is no need to test every single card in SLI/CF to prove microstuttering exists on all of them. NVIDIA and AMD don't even deny this, it's how the technology works. Go read about how this technology works and what causes microstuttering, by arguing this you are just proving you don't understand how the technology works (no offense).
(I know someone is going to quote me and say that their setup does not have microstuttering, and all I can do is highlight what I said above " Some people will never notice it ".)Edited by Murlocke - 3/18/12 at 9:05pm
