Hello everyone, i recently got my 3rd replacement 7970 as my first 2 XFX 7970 BE cards were faulty. This Gigabyte 7970 3gb Ghz edition does no longer get the issues i had with the XFX cards except one, i get microsuttter on windowed mode/fullscreen windowed mode games. I have tried 12.10 and 12.11beta with cap 2 drivers and the same results. Before i had my 6970 with 12.10 drivers and there was no microstutter at all. I experience this with pretty much all the games i play, specifically cod black ops 2, mw3, chivalry medievil warfare, counter strike go, l4d2, TF2, Guild wars 2 and league of legends. All those games i get microstutter it shows the FPS is high but it is skipping frames and looks horrible and sometimes gives me a headache just to play. If i havent already mentioned this has occured on all 3 7970's i have used.
