So im getting pretty frustrated with this problem ive been having for months now: In almost all new games and some older, i get this jidder/judder close to microstutter almost constantly. I know microstutter only occurs with multiple GPUs and since im only running a single GPU setup its not the correct term, but my problem and M-S looks very alike. Ive tried many things to fix it, with no solutions. Ive replaced my GPU with a new identical model, same with motherboard, and RAM as last solutions and the problem still persist. Please, i really need some advice!
Does this microstutter only appear when you are turning your view? Perhaps there is nothing wrong with your FPS, and everything is running smooth, but your mouse movements come across as jerky, which might mean you have a mouse that tracks horribly and/or has a low polling rate.
no mention of your hdd. if its a low end 7200rpm or has lots of partitions then that can slow down your pc also make sure you try your games with vsync enabled. it will often stop micro stutter although i doubt thats what your suffering as its a description of the delay caused when you use 2 gfx cards. when 1 card is used its fps lag, or fps stutter. it can look the same as micro stutter but because its only 1 gfx card it named differently.
if you have a spare hdd of the same make and model ( always wise to pair like with like) consider a clean format and then setup a raid 0 . this will speed up game texture load times dramatically and can also stop fps instability.
Hello! Thaks for all your replies! Ive been fiddling about with the nvidia control panel and for some reason, the stutter is almost gone if i turn on adaptive vsync, but only if i select the "Half update rate" which luckily is 60 because of my monitor, but at some point i really hope it will be fixed by drivers, cuz i dont like the occasional screen tearing of A-vsync
If v-sync is doing it to you, and a-vsyinc isn't. it sounds as if you are noticing the differences between when your monitor gets the same image twice in a row and every refresh.
This sounds like your FPS were dipping below 60 FPS with v-sync on, and when they did, your graphics card was alternating between sending images every other refresh and sending it every refresh. This creates a microstuttering type of experience.
If you have a powerful gaming rig just like me (powerful and healthy parts CPU, MOBO, GPU, RAM, PSU, SPU, HDD), and you still have micro-stuttering despite having high fps, I suggest you to check if you are experiencing input lag by USB keyboard/mouse.
Go to device manager and disable HID for mouse, keyboard and for everything else having HID that you see there, you should still be able to use your keyboard and mouse but, all the special keys in your keyboard and mouse will be disabled like volume control, quick access to calculator, quick access to web browser, etc.
Next step is to make sure you only have one language installed in your keyboard, you probably have english as default but, you might also have russian or something else, make sure its only one.
Try your games and see if they stutter again.
I was having a very weird and random micro-stuttering issue in almost every game, I went crazy trying to figure out what would case those annoying micro-stutters till I figured out it was just the input lag.
