Hey, What's Up Internet (Jack pattillo's Voice)

This is My first post or Whatever.
To the Point!
IN the past month I have noticed that alot of people having A GTX 670
Would Always Complain about micro-stuttering And then TO fix Said Issue
They would Roll Back to The 306.97 DRIVER Of course Not "ALL" GTX 670 users have
this problem But A Lot Really Do Including me Allow Me to explain
-------------------------------------------------------------
LONG POST ALERT
It all Happened When The Post 306.97 Drivers Came out
I have been neglecting my Driver updating Process For about like 3 months-ish
When I decide to GO Nvidia and Uninstall and Clean install a new driver
AND BAM! Huge Performance INCREASE in BFBC2-BF3- Call Of duty Etc.
OR so I thought At first I thought it was a LAG Server-issue (At this point Were talking about Battlefield 3)
Even tho I was getting 90 Frames+ I would always have a micro-stutter dare i say it. I went ahead and Tried ALL my

games Out! (Back to That Later) were Talking MASSIVE TROUBLE SHOOTING HERE!
I went and cleaned My system "CCLeaner And Driver sweeper"
Went ahead And Moved my games on a different HDD, Re-installed My Games, Went
Offline Mode, Tried using non-Steam Games, took a Dump. Ate Chinease food. You Get the picture. I tried

Everything-ish.


I decided to Revert back to 306.97 And that's when my games STOPPED micro-stuttering.
Its now September 7th 2013 And im still using the 306.97 Driver Which is a shame for Certain Games Like Bo2
AC3, Mirrors Edge, Etc... Because the latest Drivers Do Infact Add Performance And Extra Frame rate It just doesn't feel smooth!


I'm going to Now Link Alot of urls To my Similar yet Frustrating Sitchoooowayshon.

The only Thing I could Find in common With Our dreaded Problem was That We Had The same RAM!
The G.SKill Rip jaws 4x2! So Could That Somehow Be the Problem? I don't Want To Purchase New Ram On a Possibility

:S Thanks This is a Long ass post! And sorry For my Ameuter Post And spelling

I have had my issues with Gskill, but I don't think that's the problem here.

never heard of microstutter on a single nVidia card......never seen microstutter on a multiple nVidia cards costing more than $150

I think a windows reinstall might be in order.

Are you seeing this only in multi player or single player too ?

I have a SLI Gigabyte GTX 670 setup with 16gig G. Skill DDR3 1600 and have not had any stutter issues on single or SLI setup.

Yep, Single Player As well As Multiplayer, Even in The Cut-scenes! I think You Are Right in The Windows 7 Re-Install However In One of the links I provided They Said Something About Upgrading To windows 8! They said Upgrading to windows 8 Somehow "Fixed" The problem Here is His Post. I just Don't Want To Upgrade to Windows 8 People Say its really Bad Anywho Here it Is



"Through my own testing with a clean Windows 7 install I traced it down to a problem related to Hyper Threading CPUs. As soon as I disabled that functionality in the BIOS, everything was close to perfectly smooth.

This lead me to believe that Nvidia has been working on some kind of optimizations in relation to this. I then theorized that it might also be related to Windows 8 and how it's better optimized for multi-threading.

So, I took the plunge and installed Windows 8 for the first time two days ago. Immediately, I noticed how much smoother it was in BF3 and Crysis 3. This is with HT enabled and the 320.49 driver. It's so smooth now on my machine, it's even better than HT disabled on Windows 7. I haven't seen it this good since the early days of the game release.

Perhaps, in a later branch Nvidia will include specific additions to better suit Windows 7 again. At the moment, however, Windows 8 is the ticket if you have HT related problems."
