Default 4870X2 and microstuttering

Now that people are posting pics of their brand new 4870X2's, would you please let the rest of us know if you are seeing any microstuttering, especially in a game like Crysis when the fps dip to their lowest levels...

If you are seeing microstuttering would you PLEASE post your mobo and cpu...

Thanks,

rh

ps. Here's some info and a description of what to look for: Micro stuttering

Thank you rhuala & please people notice that :
Quote:
The subjective frame rate of a multi-GPU system is in this extreme case below a single card, although the displayed Fps are higher. This behavior is primarily critical at low frame rates, such as the aforementioned 30 Fps. The less Fps, the greater the possible intervals between them and a regular distribution gets even more important.
That article exactly describes the micro-stuttering since i was noticing it in the early days of the 7800GTX SLI.
so dont play a game that is running @40+fps & tell us there is no micro-stuttering!! thats why i always believe Crysis at very high settings is the best way for testing that.

Exactly. Crysis at V.High is a stutter-fest with 2 GTX280s... For me...

E30, did you jump ship recently? I noticed that you voted "Yes" for microstutter, and you have a GTX280 in your signature.

After a few days and plenty of tests, I can say that if there is any microstuttering, I am not capable of seeing of "feeling" it at all. I'm in love with this card.

Bit sus that the two people who voted yes don't have a 4870x2 according to their sig. Doesn't say they don't have one, but a comment would be nice...

I'm guessing they missed the poll being public... Turds... Up to them to prove they have one...

Mine microstutters all over the place! I am sending it back!

j/k

I going to wait for one with improved cooling. Hopefully, Visiontek releases one with better cooling like they did with the HD 3870 X2.

For me it was acceptable and not really annoying.
Thanks for the honest remark .. usually people try praise their card as much as they can.
