Have AMD and Nvidia drivers pretty much eliminated Xfire/SLI u-stutter?

Have frame pacing drivers pretty much eliminated micro-stutter in Xfire/SLI setups?
 
not that I can say, with my 970's in sli I find that it's just not as smooth as a single 970 or a single 980.
 
Depends on the title, drivers, setup, etc. It is much improved from both camps, but, in many cases, is still there. Some notice it, some do not.
 
Last time I used SLi was about a year ago, with a couple of 980's on a 4K monitor, and well, it was running great. Did not notice any stuttering. Was playing SoM, Dying Light and DA Inquisition at this time.

Your 5820 @ 4.85 Ghz that must beat the average 24-7 o'clock for a 5820 by a considerable amount. I wonder if that could have anything to do with your lack of issues in SLI?
 
CPU speed doesn't have anything to do with frametime and microstuttering on the GPU.

So there's no way at all to minimize SLI/Crossfire u-stutter? What about tri-Fire or three-way SLI? Does that
help to minimize u-stutter?

If anything I believe more cards would increase the rate or chance of microstutter since they master card has more slave cards in tandem that its communicating with. But that's just what I've been told and from my own research

I got the 5820 couple of months ago. The 980's were running with [email protected]. But you're right: with the same +/- the same IPC that may be the reason.
