    Microstter was dealed with in the frame pacing part of the drivers, quite a bit of time ago. I had 8800gtx sli as well. sli was still in its infancy back then. Microstutter was dealt with kepler onwards. I had 580 sli as well, microstutter was much improved in fermi compared to older gen sli cards I had in the past. Judging my 10 years experience with sli with frametime graph with an 8 day game GTA V was not really the best counter to my no problems with sli. I cannot speak for xfire as I never ran it but I would probably expect more of the same.

    Although I fully believe you, unless we are well withing the Vulkan/DX12 era, and developers have proper engine scaling, I'm not touching that again.

    Hi.
    Is there a way to disable auto-update of the graphic drivers in windows 10 technical preview?
    Everytime I check for update in win10 it install this wddm2.0 DirectX 12 drivers, but they don't work very well, and if I override it with the 15.4 it still install it anyway.
    If someone know how to fix this, I would be greatfull.
    Chears.

    In Windows 8.1, I right click the update and click HIDE Update. It won't show anymore (ever - unless you restore hidden updates), use DDU to uninstall all AMD drivers, then install the one you want to use. Not sure if Hide Update is available in Windows 10, I hope it is anyway.

    Yea, I know that you can hide/choice what update to install but, in Windows 10 Preview you can't do this anymore. I hope that the final windows 10 will have this option + they will restore the old windows update from control panel like it is on win8 (you can use old windows update or metro if you like)

    It is my understanding that by the time the OS hits RTM, we'll have the option to choose what drivers get installed automatically through Windows Update back. Maybe, we could even see it a bit earlier.

    In the meantime, you may want to have a look at this thread on the Windows Insider forums in order to choose a driver you don't want to be offered/installed on Windows Update:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_update/how-to-block-automatic-reinstall-of-a-driver-from/bff07224-4ce2-4b42-ab29-68c3a305d730

    After using the script you will find in that thread, I was able to prevent the latest drivers from AMD for my R9 290X to be downloaded/installed on Windows Update.

    I hope you find it as useful as I did.
    Good luck! :)

    In Unity they seem to work better than 15.4. About the Witcher I have no idea.
