Default future of AMD drivers

I know they just came out with Frame Pacing, although I'm not sure how much of a noticable difference this makes in actual performance, not on my rig for sure.
Are we going to see something a bit more exciting and new, like AA enhancements or better Vsync implementation on future drivers without having to buy a new card, especially for people with 7xxx up?
Nvidia always seem to have an ace up their sleeve, come on AMD, we are as gullible as the green people you know!

You could always pretend that amd has txaa support, all you have to do is enable 4-8x msaa/ssaa, turn down the resolution to 720p. Boom now you can have the same experience as nvidia owners!

The ace up their sleeve always seems to be a fake card as well. Remember Adpative VSync and how it was going the change gaming? Never quite lived up to the hype did it?

Oh and lets not forget how 4K gaming was the future of gaming the most important development in PC gaming. Oh wait that was so last week, before NVidia knew the 290X kicked Titans butt in 4 K gaming. Now the most important innovation in gaming is a proprietary hardware addition to monitors.

Give it two weeks and the greatest innovation in gaming will change again.

NVidia these last months has been rolling on a hype machine with no real substance coming out.

I've already noticed PhysX in the last Batman is down to some moving smoke and flying paper. That's what you get for selfishly clinging to proprietary software!
