amd or nvidia, which has most consistent fps?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I remember hearing somewhere that amd cards were dropping frames or something, what's the deal with this? I want the smoothest performance possible. Do the new amd cards, like the 7970 low variance like a gtx 770?

Neither really. Whether AMD or Nvidia provide a better experience really depends on the game. For example Tomb Raider has/had some performance issues and graphical glitches on Nvidia cards while Skyrim is or at least was a bit jittery on AMD cards.

The thing you might have heard about was the frame pacing issues AMD cards had in dual GPU setups (Crossfire). While it was true and is still true even after AMD released the improved frame pacing drivers, really the whole frame pacing thing has been blown a bit out of proportion.

And like I said earlier. As far as single GPU setups are concerned which is better really depends on the game in question. Both have issues from time to time but mos of the time things run smoothly regardless of whether you are running Red or Green.
