Yup, had that same issue and just doing a clean wipe with atiman and installing it fresh fixed it.
On the topic of stuttering, I am one of those people who actually noticed it in every game, that's why I gave away my second 7950 to my GF.
That being said, with the new drivers I took that card back from her for testing, and I have to say, even in games that I noticed HUGE micro stutter issues such as BF3 and Metro or even some MMO's, that stutter to my eye is completely gone now.
I couldn't be happier with the driver! I am planning on buying my gf a new card, since she doesn't game much, and just keeping the 7950 for my crossfire now!
I mean, once in a blue moon you'll still notice the micro-stutter, but it is SO RARE now, that honestly I couldn't care much for it. In 2-3 hours of gameplay, you'll notice it maybe twice for a split second. Which is nothing. That's maybe 1 second out of your 10,800 seconds of gameplay that you notice it.
There is still room for improvement, but this is a great step in the right direction! Can't wait until the next update comes around!
P.S. Now that I have crossfire and can run every game maxed out smooth as butter, I'm not sure I want to upgrade when the 9XXX series comes out, unless it is a HUGE improvement.
