Frame Rating: Catalyst 13.8 Brings Frame Pacing to AMD Radeon
Frame Pacing Setting: Enabled vs Disabled
With so many internal changes to the code base of the driver for 13.8 I wanted to make sure that things were still working as I expected with the new frame pacing setting disabled. With the Radeon HD 7970s in CrossFire on our test bed I ran the test both with the new option turned on and turned off.
Clearly the frame pacing option is doing its job and AMD has retained the capability to disabled it should you want to for some odd reason. I believe there is no benefit to turning off this capability though AMD might still have some bugs in their software implementation that creep up down the road. Having the option to turn it off then could be important for stability and compatibility.
