I'm having an issue where the game will work perfectly, sometimes for 5 minutes, sometimes for an hour, literally not a single frame drop and then before my eyes it'll start to chug and hitch constantly, and the frame rate will start to drop as well, not massively but enough to cause a constant hitching sensation that makes me feel like I'm being pulled backwards. In all my years of PC gaming I have never experianced anything like this, so I am completely stumped and I need some help, so if anyone has any suggestions or thoughts please speak up.

 

I have tried resetting my bios, reinstalling the game, reinstalling my drivers with DDU, going back to an older driver, playing without my overclocks, and nothing has helped. I have made a short video showing the issue, although it's honestly hard to see from the video, but you should be able to get the idea, just imagine it being much worse in-game:

 

 

My specs:

 

i5 3570k @ 4.3GHz

GTX 970

8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz

SSD

XFI XtremeGamer 

Windows 10 64

Latest bios, firmware, drivers for everything

 

PS: Both my CPU and GPU are under 70c at all times.

What operating system? If it is Windows 10, you may be out of luck. People have stuttering/framerate/crash issues all over the place since the drivers for Windows 10 are new.

Windows 10 64. And are people having issues in all games, or just Witcher III? Because for example Mad Max runs flawlessly while maxed (sorry..).

Yep. Plenty of games have problems with Windows 10, and plenty of games have no problems with Windows 10. Witcher III is one of the games that does. Give the developers/video card manufacturers time to fix all of the issues. Windows 10 just arrived, so there are bound to be problems with it.

Well today's Nvidia driver made it even worse, the drops are more severe, as is the hitching. Bear in mind when these symptoms aren't present I get 60fps without dips everywhere:

Have you tried this?


Navigate to C:\Users\YourUserName\Documents\The Witcher 3\user.settings.ini

Find "TextureMipBias=-1" and change it to "TextureMipBias=0"

Then save the settings..

Restart and try again..
