Micro-Stuttering: Alternate Frame Rendering (AMD)
AMD’s drivers let you change and replace the profiles that control its CrossFire technology to tweak performance the way you want it. We didn’t really think messing with those settings would address micro-stuttering, but tried it out anyway in the interest of being thorough.
First, we benchmark the default setting to establish a baseline...
Option 1: AFR-Friendly
Option 2: Optimized 1x1
None of our changes make much of a difference, and when we do see something happen, it's in the wrong direction.
Nvidia's Adaptive VSync feature is often thrown out as a solution for jerky transitions between sync states, so we'll give that technology a try next.
