I've noticed this in several games, including TF2 and basically any Bethesda game where the framerate isn't locked by the game itself, vsync is disabled, and I'm running it in windowed mode. I'd usually do this and limit the fps with another program like Rivatuner. I also noticed it in SOMA, when windowed (vsync enabled or not) and perhaps a few other games. The primary factor seems to be a lack of vsync and/or windowed mode. It doesn't happen in Dark Souls III when windowed as far as I can tell.

But for some reason I notice this odd stuttering and the framerate seems to drop a lot, but it's only visible to the naked eye and FPS counters don't pick it up at all.

Is this normal somehow? Because personally I've never seen something like this happen. I've been trying to search around for information on this but I've gotten absolutely nothing.

Maybe its the monitor? or possibly the little play back feature of nvidia shadow play. Also if your using 10 it might be the xbox application, by default it has game dvr on, have to sign in on it just to disable it.

 

Could always try setting the game at a high priority when you have it in window mode, might fix it.

I think I've got it figured out that I was just doing things I shouldn't be doing and that I'm really super dense.

If the problem returns try this:

 

 

Download the latest Nvidia Drivers or AMD Drivers

Then, download this: Wagnard's Display Driver Uninstaller - this is a GPU driver cleaner, it will definitely remove your GPU drivers, unlike official uninstallers. Note: There are some deceptive ads on the forum page.

 

  • Run Wagnard's DDU - it may create a number of files in the same directory, like a .zip file, so you may have to run it in its own folder
  • Run the application, "DDU.exe" I believe is the name
  • Select the "best option", Safe Mode and Reboot
  • After the computer reboots to safe mode, run DDU if it does not open automatically
  • Choose the "best option", clean install and reboot I think it is called
  • After restarting install the AMD driver you downloaded first
  • Restart if prompted
