I know the frame pacing driver should have fixed it but I still felt microstuttering in most games. I switched to a GTX 780 about a week ago and OMG it was so much smoother because there was no microstutter and way higher frame rates too. I really wanted to get a Sapphire Tri-X OC but it was sold out everywhere it wasn't being price gouged hard. Ah well I'm happy with my ref PNY GTX 780 biggrin.gif

Just my 2 cents.

The frame pacing drivers did nothing for the 6xxx series. Only 7xxx and above.

Ah that explains it. I guess I didn't read the patch notes very well biggrin.gif

In any case frame pacing is awesome. Wish I had the cash for a 295x2, looks like a fun card. I wonder if there will be full cover water blocks for it?

I didn't have any issue with my 6970. Other than it couldn't max crysis 2, So I got rid of it.

RIGHT! With Nvidia they have great support with all cards. My older cards (i can not afford new cards) were working fine till AMD started fiddling with the drivers where they worked fine before. Also though i asked around in the HD7850 thread how crossfire was working mid/later 2013 and they still have screen tearing and frame latency in games, even with up to date drivers. Also some of those glitches in that link aren't with games.

My point it is this video is pretty dumb and they are always trying to push their hardware but, never try to truly improve their software like nvidia did.
