I mean "get better" by eliminating micro stutter and other disadvantages of having a multi-gpu set up?

I have owned 7970 GHz editions in crossfire and currently have 2x 780Tis in SLI... I honestly notice no difference between them and single GPU configurations. I got my first 7970 December of 2012, then my second in December 2013. When I first had a crossfire setup, there was a couple games that stuttered, but AMD released the patch for them and I haven't noticed it since.

Reduced to a minimum, sure. Eliminated, probably not.

It will never be eliminated but for the most part SLI/Crossfire now works with most every game released with minimal issues.

ive had 2 SLI set ups in the past (260's and 570's) and have never once experienced microstutter.

I have a GTX660 SLI setup and no microstutter. Also all the benchmarks I have seen generally have almost 100% efficiency, as in one card gives you 40 fps, a second card will be very near 80.

I thought the stuttering was related to the pci-e speeds being different. If you have two 16 slots then there should be no stutter.

I hope it can be completely eliminated or what is the big deal about g sync monitors?? Just because people say they don't see micro stutter doesn't mean it isn't there. I wasn't able to see input lag on hdtv's for the longest time either until you know it's there and how to look for it u may not notice it.

Hmm, I'm using a motherboard that can't utilize PCI-Ex 3 if I'm using a CPU that isn't Ivy Bridge, so the slot defaults to 2, would that mean getting another 780 into the other slot I'd get near 1:1 efficiency, due to the same speeds?
Isn't that right, Zach?
