I recently read this Tech Report review:
and it highlighted an issue with the current gen of AMD cards in many games. There was much more inconsistency between how fast frames are being rendered on the AMD card and they showed high speed video showing the effects in Skyrim.
I am running a 6950 and I am not sure if they have the same issue but I have noticed some stuttering in Skyrim as well very similar to that shown in the Tech Report's video.
Is this a hardware fault or a driver fault and is it going to be fixed? I have not really noticed much stuttering in any other games and my FPS remains high in nearly all games, including Skyrim. I have been contemplating an upgrade to the 8970 when it launches but I this worries me and I want to make sure if I buy a high end card that I will be getting the smoothest experience possible in games.
Thanks for your replies.
