agreed. No matter what hardware you throw at it there is stuttering. What does "fix" it is by setting a frame cap at 60 and running settings that will keep you there. stuttering will be fixed

Tried it with vsync, was choppy with my i3-540 with just one card, now it's on another level.

Anyone tried single card with virtu or something? Would like to enjoy it

When I was running 2 7970's, a frame limiter kept that game smooth as silk until I couldn't maintain 60 fps. I was probably running with vsync too though. I don't really remember.

I play it with vsync and it runs great. No visable stuttering or choppiness. It's 58-60 FPS pretty much all of the time. I have turned off vsync some and the frames are much higher, but it them has some issues. For me vsync makes it very playable. This games seems to like a strong CPU, my mins are so much better with my Ivy than they were with my PHII. Of course, you already have that taken care of

What's it like with just one card? It was quite smooth on my old 560TI

Using Afterburner to cap at 59, and keeping vsync on the jutterstutter is more like actual microstutter now.

It's still not anything close to what I would refer to as smooth though, but it's not so bad that I don't think I can finish from where my i3-540 single 7950 run left off (game is super repetitive).


After finishing Crysis 3 and having no issues with vsync off or on I was a bit taken aback, one game at a time I guess.


Has anyone found a leak of the prototype driver?

I kinda just completely gave up on that game with my 6990. May try it again.

Yes. It's not as graphically intensive, so it seems better behaved.

Far Cry 3 gets very stuttery with multi card systems if the framerate drops below 60 FPS. Takes a lot of hardware to get max settings and maintain smooth gameplay. It's possible.

Did it give you a headache? Silky smooth on my 780 except for the random artifacts.
