Question: Does AMD's A8 series APU + compatible discrete GPU still suffer from micro stutter since it's technically a dual GPU set up or is it immune to that with the way the GPUs are set up together?

for right now all dual card setups can suffer from microstutter. with all combination of discrete, onboard or on-die GPUs. its only noticeable with lower frame rates and noticeing it is dependant on the person, as each person has different refresh speeds from their eyes to their brain. i personally notice it under 60fps but my brother doesnt notice it till its slows down to 35fps.

this wont be a problem in a couple of years as there is a new way to cache images before they get sent to the monitor but it takes time to implement. i was wishing that the radeon 7k series would implement the new buffering but no mention as of yet. they get "released" tomorrow.
