Micro stutter has been deminished greatly, frame rates have increased and game support is even higher then ever. AMD is moving in the right direction. Updates are also coming out faster.

    People that still have issues with AMD drivers are related to user error. I just helped someone the other day. Suppose to be a pro with PCs. Tried to run Xfire but couldnt get it to work. He tossed in a 2nd card after already installing CCC. DUH! Read the instructions man! Remove all AMD drivers and CCC then install the most up to date version and it worked first time around. User error is not AMDs fault.

    I have no preference one way or the other. I look at costs vs. performance and choose the middle ground. Sometimes I do go all out but, that is rare. Till they shrink the dies on the gpu's we aren't going to see a huge advantage one way or the other. This battle has been going on since the early 90's and it's been back and fourth every couple years. Sure it would be nice to have a few top of the line cards but at what cost?

    Shrink the dies to what? The have been shrinking the dies every other Generation of GPU for the last few years. This will be down to 28nm Die. That doesn't mean you will get the best performance. Die shrinks only add about 5-10% of performance the rest comes from design improvements. Die shrinks benefit the manufacture more then it benefits the end users. They can cut more GPUs out of the same size wafer saving them money and in turn increases margins. The end user sure as heck hasn't seen a price drop for new technology. Top end cards are $500-600 when they are released. The is double what a top end card used to cost 5-6 years ago. You save a few bucks on energy cost, if you dont overclock your card.
