Ok. pulled from another forum, something for Ryan to answer. (Not my text)
"The problem being, Ryan has already had access to the prototype driver which helps address the frame metering issue, but I don't see any mention/reference of it in this latest article."
"Just one example of dodgy journalism:"
When I went to AMD with these problems (a few weeks ago) they assured me that they are working on a fix and that it CAN be fixed.
If it does require hardware, did AMD’s upcoming Hawaii product have enough time to integrate the solution? A new architecture with the same problems with Eyefinity would be a big disappointment.
"Ryan(Delboy) is misdirecting his audience-'If it does require hardware' despite first hand experience
that AMD is working on a software fix, he knew that back in April:
Keeping mind that we are testing the Radeon HD 7990 with both the 13.5 beta and the prototype driver, we see very different behavior. The currently available driver sees a drop in perceived frame rate thanks to runt frame issues but that is lessened greatly with the driver build targeted for a June/July release. Without that driver the HD 7990 is much slower than both the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 and the GTX Titan...but with it the power of the Tahiti GPUs is much better positioned to be the top performer.
"'Frame Rating: High End GPUs Benchmarked at 4K Resolutions'"
"Which yet again begs the question, why release a report that contradicts his earlier report so close to the 25th September as he has clearly lied to his target audience?"Edited by Abundant Cores - 9/19/13 at 7:05pm
