Question 295 Single-PCB & Microstuttering

Some that had the original dual-PCB 295 complained about microstuttering under 30fps. Since the single PCB uses the same components except on a single-PCB, I am guessing that it has the same problem. I am also aware not everyone notices it, and that most SLI/Crossfire/etc setups will have it.

For those that are sensitive to microstuttering and also has a single-PCB 295, how does it fare in this dept? Would like to get some first-hand reports despite my common sense conclusion.

I really don't think there's any difference. It's a problem common with any SLI set up.

I figured so, Jason. I wonder if in the future this could be remedied by having a hardware chip whose primary purpse is to clock the FPS output of the two GPUs to ensures proper timing.

I recently got a 285 and it is great, was just wondering about the 295 to get extra horsepower for a future 3D vision purchase but I'm VERY sensitive to framerate weirdness and would probably notice the microstuttering. So hopefully GT300 will come out before my trade up window expires in late sep!

to be correct, its a problem common to all Multi-GPU setups.

MS was somewhat of an issue for me with 7 and 8 series sli but I can't say I've noticed any happening on the 295 (dual pcb). Even in Crysis I can't say I've noticed it and its probably the only game I have that pulls the card into the 20 fps range. I say stick with the 285 for now if you are happy with it and see what comes down the pipe

That is what I'm planning on, I will see what is avail when my tradeup window is almost gone, and also by then hopefully have the full vision setup to see how it runs on the 285.

Many of the "microstuttering" reports can be attributed to a smaller framebuffer size. Personally, I do not notice it on the 295's.

Me neither, I have not seen any Microstuttering with my 295's and I have TRI SLI GTX285's also well. And I like my 295's setup much better but that is my personal opinion.

It was somewhat apparant with the 9800GX2's, but I think that was more attributed to the smaller FB size.
