Default Re: GTX 295 and Microstuttering

Thanks All.

3 GTX 285's are not any less prone to inter-frame delay errors than Quad 295's are. They both use AFR for performance enhancement. However neither of which suffer to such a degree that you should be overly worried.

I think it's to do with 2GPUs on one card (GTX295) x2 (Quad) causes much more micro stutter rather than 3x285 single GPU card on tri sli or just a single GTX 295. I asked another guy whom did both setup and tested on you tube as well the guy on my last post(different source)
Absolutely not. The more GPUS you have. The faster your AFR will be. The only difference is theres a slight increase in latency per GPU.
