New type of benchmark: FCAT.

Here it is explained. I guess stutter might be the last frontier of player frustration at a video card...,1.html

FCAT benches have been around for a long time. Guru3D has really been spearheading them with any GPU review. Back in the day AMD was horrible at FCAT which is why you saw so much stutter but yet had high FPS. Then they got their **** together about a year ago with the Crimson driver and things got alot better.

Where FCAT really shows difference will be in Multi-GPU segment and this is where AMD usually falters still. Nvidia has issues as well but just not as severe.

Something else to look in to when purchasing, big FPS doesn't always mean smooth.
