Microstuttering

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i got me a Asus hd 7970 Dcuii top for less then 300€ at caseking.de which is just more then 100€ lees then in Denmark where i am from,i couldn't have gotten a better deal.

I had a gtx 550 ti, gtx 560 and a msi tf gtx 660 i just have sold, so i was thinking would i regret buying a amd card, i have heard all about microstuttering and the fact that nvidia is better af games like bf3 and sli then amd card's

Reading on a danish forum about amd, the new and old card's, what to get and so on, one person stated amd have microstuttering in cf and even with a single card so he sold his card(s) and got something from nvidia. Tried to se if i had microstuttering, mabye i did (not much if i have microstuttering) mabye i don't.

What's up with the microstuttering in general and that amd is not as good a nvida using 2 card's? Will mantle change that?

Microstutter is not a problem for single GPU cards - especially higher end ones like the 7970. When you crossfire its a bit worse, but 13.8+ drivers improves it a lot and gets it more inline with nVidia...its still not as good as SLI, but way better than before.

Your 7970 will crush your old 560. Feel free to try and overclock to ~1100Mhz and youll have one of the fastest Radeon cards available.

With single cards AMD is on a par with their nVidia counterparts as far as frame times go. It is only in multi card setups that the issue arises (and is slowly being fixed).

Edit:

This is a sample result for single cards using the 13.2 beta 5 driver, so before the 13.8 frame pacing fix - as you can see there was never a problem with micro-stuttering with single cards:

Compare the dark green and blue lines - they are very similar in terms of smoothness.

Amd did a lot of work to remove single card stutter earlier this year starting with 13.2 beta. Single cards should work just as good as nvidia now.

My last card was a gtx 660, i played a bit of need for speed shift and grid racedriver today and got 120+ fps so i don't need to oc my card.

I5 3470 running at 3.8ghz on all cores, good enough for newer games i want to play at about 60 fps?

Have noticed on boraderlands i somtimes get as little fps as 25-30 fps (no physX enabled all other settings at max)
