Default Re: People with GTX 280 running in SLI

There will always be framerate dips if you push your graphics solution hard enough, no matter what the PR department of your favorite IHV would like you to believe. Overall I find it pretty smooth, the 1gb of memory per card is a big help. 512mb per card isn't really enough IMO if you are going for hires + high IQ.

I really don't know about microstutter, since I almost exclusively make use of SLI-AA modes which are not prone to micro-stutter, the exception being crysis where I let the app handle the AA, and I can't say I've noticed microstutter there.
