From the article:
Meanwhile, frame-aligned DCS is designed to shut off a graphics core after it renders a frame, which obviously affects performance badly
When someone says "obviously", it generally means they're incorrect. Frame-aligning the shutdown can reduce the visual impact on performance less than a randomly-timed shutdown, for similar reasons that frame-aligning your monitor to your graphics card improves smoothness.
