Small FPS drops are extremely noticeable.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone, 

I run all my games on my Acer XB271HU at 165hz and G-Sync on. Whenever I get a small fps drop, say from 164 down to 130, it feels like it's 40 fps for a split second. Does anyone know how to fix this? My GPU is GTX 1080.

This is one of the more informational videos I've found on the topic. The reason it feels like 40fps is because it most likely is, and your FPS counter just doesn't move fast enough to catch it. The lack of simultaneous multi-threading on the i5s brings somewhat of a disadvantage to them. The only reason you don't also see this in the 9700K is that most games (up until maybe last year) had been optimized for 4c/8t CPUs, since that was what had been around for so long. It's basically a 7700K but 8 full cores instead of 8 threads.

So you're saying my I5 8600K @ 4.8GHz isn't fast enough to prevent dips to 40fps? Would overclocking it to 5GHz solve the problem?

Did you... watch the video? It's not about speed, it's about core/thread count.

 

edit: and it's called stuttering, just so you know.
