In the last year stuttering, micro-stuttering, and frame interval benchmarking have become a very big deal in the world of GPUs, and for good reason. Through the hard work of the Tech Report’s Scott Wasson and others, significant stuttering issues were uncovered involving AMD’s video cards. At the same time however, as AMD has fixed those issues, both AMD and NVIDIA have laid out their concerns over existing testing methodologies, and why these may not be the best methodologies. To that end, today NVIDIA will be introducing a new too evaluating frame latencies: FCAT. As we will see, the Frame Capture Analysis Tool stands to change frame interval benchmarking as we know it, and as we will see it will be for the better.
