Micro-stuttering is easy, it's a single GPU so it doesn't have that. Everything else, so far not delivered upon yet.
Once again you are not comparing apples to apples.......a single GPU should be compared against another single GPU, not a GX2 card or 8800GT's in SLI.
Im not gonna get in a pissing match here but you are really calling the shots way to early on the GTX 280. Give it a few driver revisions and then you will have something to talk about if it does not get better, until then its to early to tell.
