I respect that. That's fine. My apologies for the "emotional" response. Perhaps I was wrong to call you arrogant, ignorant maybe, but not arrogant. Since you're on Catalyst 15.11.1 (and hopefully still have the game installed). Go increase the graphical settings; put the game on high (then change textures to ULTRA), and turn off nVidia Hairworks and Hairworks anti-aliasing. Then go to post processing and make sure everything is enabled except (blur and motion blur which I have off because I do not like them, you can keep them enabled if you wish). Run around the cities and if you don't notice any micro-stuttering then I do not understand how that's not happening. Considering we both have the same GPU, and I have better RAM @ Higher Clocks, and a higher CPU clock with a better CPU. If you do notice micro-stuttering, and surely with the same settings you should. Install Crimson and test the same places and see the difference in performance. As for complaining about AMD, I am all up for that. They deserve the complaints about crossfire profiles, they deserve the criticism when they didn't release a single WHQL Driver for a long time before Windows 10 came out. And they deserve the criticism for when they're at fault for not optimizing their drivers in time for big games. They also deserve the criticism when it comes to API Overhead (I'm all up for criticism and I've joined in on it too)... But we should praise them when they do something good too (and including shader cache is good). I would like to believe, and I do believe they're moving in a better direction now. I criticized them a lot when they decided they were going to give VSR for the 280x but not the HD7970 (and they deserved every bit of criticism they got back then), and I'm glad they changed their mind and didn't do it at the end. And if the day comes that they decide the 7970 will not get a driver update but the 280X will, then I will criticize them again.
