Games I used to test with HD 7970 are working well. Only visible and measurable performance decrease was with Witcher 2, with Ubersampling. Everything else was just fine. Following scenarios are possible:a) its a driver issue.
b) games you are playing have been patched.c) its not related to HD 7970, but only to graphics which were released later.
Choice b) can be simply removed if you have rolled-back to Cat 13.12 and performance is back to normal. I believe it can be combination of A and B. Last generation of GCN graphics have better performance numbers in Mantle as HD 7970 due some optimizations. It may be an answer why I dont have any performance issues.
Probably this, because most of us with the problem of stutter are 290's owners. But it's still driver issue, new drivers should be optimized for the latest high end GPU's. So a) and c) both are correct.
And about games which were smooth with 13.12 and now are stutter. Here you are.
Sleeping Dogs, Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim, Battlefield 4 DX mode, Thief DX mode, Mass Effect Trilogy, Crysis 2, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3. All games which i played are stuttering with this driver, just all except one title - NFS Rivals. As you can see problem applies to both older and newer games.Edited by Witwicky - 4/7/14 at 5:27am
