Scott Wasson from The Tech Report and Ryan have been discussing the microstuttering present in Crossfire and while Ryan got his hands on the hardware to capture the raw output first, The Tech Report have been investigating this issue as in depth as Ryan and Ken have been.  Their look at the new Catalyst and the effects of Frame Pacing show the same results as you saw yesterday in Ryan's article; for essentially no cost in performance you can get a much smoother experience when using a CrossFire system on a single display.  In their article they have done a great job of splicing together videos of runthroughs of several games with the Frame Pacing disabled on one side and enabled on the other, allowing you to see with your own eyes the difference in game play, without having to have your own Crossfire system.

Vindicated...and yet people will still harp that Ryan is biased.

Nope. Ryan's pretty much hated right now by BOTH AMD and Nvidia.

Sheesh, you can't please anyone -_-

Ryan, keep up the good work man and f@ck these fanboys. Your unbiased and very evidence based work speaks for itself.

Thanks for keeping it real.
