The same turn didn't result in any blurring when Motion Blur is disabled, as the left shot shows. The Medium setting provides more polygons to smooth out character appearances, and objects contain more detail, but FPS is reduced. More details about VSync are on this page of the Gamer's Graphics & Display Settings Guide. Makes your OP a tad confusing using AA for both of them.

The recently released ATI CATALYST 5.1 drivers made no difference. Patch Analysis After doing some extensive testing with the new patch, I have noticed a few things.

That being said, I have noticed an intermittent frame rate reduction with this patch. It will be unacceptable if they simply prevent the sound from skipping while the pausing still occurs. It occurs on all supported versions of ATI CATALYST and NVIDIA ForceWare drivers, including the CATALYST 4.12 and ForceWare 67.02 beta drivers that contain optimizations for Source engine games. check over here Bilinear, 4xAF & 16xAF respectively.

Math isn't fun in the middle of the night... For NVIDIA video card owners, there is a remaining stuttering problem that is still being worked on and for that reason, the new in game setting that enables the stuttering fix I've seen it in HL2 and Episode 2, on both my Mac Pro (radeonHD 4870) and my MBP (Geforce 9400M).

I am a bit concerned that they refer to this issue as a "sound skipping problem" when in fact the whole game pauses while the sound is skipping.
