[Anand] AMD Comments on GPU Stuttering, Offers Driver Roadmap & Perspective on Benchmarking - Page 10

post #91 of 152
Once resolved I will again look back to AMD cards if the price:performance is still there. Great to see some accountability on AMD's part

I had good memories of the X1950 but my last AMD setup CF 5970 made me switch to Nvidia (Skyrim being a stuttering mess for many months sealed the deal)

I have terrible stuttering and macro-lagging in FC3, and Hitman isn't right either

Other than that my 7950 CF works great in the games I've tried with a 60Hz LCD

With Linux there have long been real time distributions.

its a kludge, for the most part, bolted on. Linux doesn't want to be a deterministic deadline bound RTS, its not the way it is designed to operate. Neither does windows for that matter. In the desktop space, the closest we got was BeOS, which was a nearly real time software OS. Real, real time OS's are hardware interupt driven typically with a watchdog type interupt counter. These are typically only found in embeeded hardware like car ecu's etc.

Sometimes admission of being able to do better enforces consumer confidence in their products.

Since my main rig is no longer bound to Nvidia for a 3D Vision GPU, next round I'm going to consider a set of 8970's with 780's should this be addressed by AMD by then.

So I see it as a good thing. Regardless if its been a known issue or not will be a moot point soon if they follow through successfully. thumb.gif

Precisely. Goes a long way to restore my confidence in any company, or man, for that matter, to simply acknowledge the fact that there is a fault, room for improvement, and it is being addressed to the best of their ability.

Your backside is speaking. RTL distros operate at the microsecond level fully preemptively, 100us interrupt driven, overkill for gaming.

Seriously, ignore Collins. He's not Linux friendly and says whatever he wants, regardless of the state of Linux. It's piss annoying, so instead of correcting him I just respond to those he has and make a proper response. He's beyond help in any form.

Where did you come up with misinformation like that?

What he is describing is a pause due to HDD seek time.

More ram would reduce the number of times the system is waiting on the HDD, but might not solve the problem completely.

Am I the only person with a Crossfire setup that simply does not notice all these supposed issues?
