Above, the percentile chart of the 30 seconds gaming @ 2560x1440. Here we plot FPS and place it in relation to percentiles.
50% of the time measured frames is doing 75 FPS.
The last 5% of the frames is at 47 FPS or lower.
You'll notice that here that the frametime recoding has way more spikes, some of them passing 30-40ms, a handful of them are visually noticeable. They remain small though to not be irritating. And again the fat bars for the R7990 indicate micro-stuttering where each frame is alternating from a lower to a higher latency. It's hard, real hard to visually see it though, that's the honest truth.
The good news though is, AMD already released a Beta driver with frame-spacing towards press. We received it, unfortunately it's Windows 8 only (at the moment), and considering we ditched Windows 8 we can't show you the progress thus far.
And again the 13.5 Beta 2 prototype driver. It is hard to detect and see, but the frame pacing prototype driver does have a bit of effect, the turnaround latency is getting much smaller. It's work in progress but there are some imporevements.
PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 review We test and review the PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 today. This stock clocked Radeon HD 7850 is cooled passively, meaning it has no fans tool it down. That also means it's rather silent as it does not make any noise. But what about temperatures then you must be wondering ?
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7790 2GB OC review We test and review the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7790 2GB OC edition, also known under SKU code GV-R7790OC-2GD. We benchmark the product incl FCAT Frametimes. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming. The Gigabyte HD7790 OC 2GB clocks in at 1075 MHz on the boost engine, packed with totally silent custom cooling.
MSI Radeon HD 7790 TurboDuo OC review We test and review the MSI Radeon HD 7790 OC edition, also known under SKU code R7790-1GD5-OC incl FCAT Frametimes. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming.
Radeon HD 7990 review We review the new AMD Radeon HD 7990 including FCAT frametime measurements. The dual GPU product that you guys learned to know under codename Malta finally is released. AMD it doing it in style, two fully equipped Tahiti XT2 GPUs versus good yet silent cooling. In this review we'll look at the product, the architecture, the benchmarks, including frametime based FCAT measurements. Head on over towards our AMD Radeon HD 7990.
