Huge stuttering is ruining my brother's gameplay

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So my family's PC has a Ryzen 3 3200G Custom PC with the following parts:

CPU: Ryzen 3 3200G overclocked at 3.8Ghz

RAM: 16GB of DDR4 clocked at 3000Mhz

Mobo: ASUS Prime B450M-A Micro-ATX

PSU: Aerocool Integrator 600W Power Supply

Case: NZXT H510

Drive(s): 120GB Crucial BX500 SATA SSD + 500GB WD HDD at 5400RPM

 

This PC was working well for the first few months, then I decided to download an AMD Radeon driver (version 20.4.2) to speed things up for my brother. It was a bad move, and now the PC stutters like it has a Core 2 Duo from 2008 inside. I decided to make a post about it here, and a person told me to download a DDU, which made some games return to their normal performance, but CS:GO (the game my brother plays the most) still stutters like HELL.

 

Could anybody please help? I would appreciate it if you did because my brother is pretty mad at me for ruining the PC and not letting him use mine.

Step 1 "Don't touch his stuff."

Step 2 ...

Step 3 Profit!

 

Jokes aside.

Did you run DDU? Did you reinstall the driver? Did you try a different version (some versions are shit - you should try and older version then)?

Check Temps

Check CPU and GPU utilization

 

We don't have enough info to solve this realiably

Right now you are using the default driver windows asigns for that GPU which is robably ye' old. So I'd say an update would be generally a good idea now.

Do you know any versions of the driver that work well?

Nope.

That what’s probably causing it. Ryzen cpus benefit from high memory frequency, try enabling it in the bios.

In the ASUS BIOS, I believe D.O.C.P is basically XMP. Yeah, I'll try it.

Yes, that is correct.

Well, I tried it, and opened CS:GO, but the stuttering is even worse than before.

Update: With the overclocked RAM, the PC went into the blue crash screen twice, even with the voltage and everything sorted.

I would try again: 

1. Turn off Windows automatic driver installation linked here - https://windowsloop.com/disable-automatic-driver-installation-on-windows-10/#:~:text= Disable Automatic Driver Installation on Windows 10,Automatic Driver Installation via Registry Editor More  

 

2. Run DDU whilst in safe mode. 

3. Download the latest AMD video drivers for your 3200G. 

 

4. Install the latest video drivers for your 3200G.

 

5. Move/Install the game onto your SSD and see where that gets you.

I wouldn't rule out the HDD being the culprit here. You'll encounter bad hitching and stuttering on a 5400RPM drive in lots of games (can confirm this personally, having a WD Green in my own system).

Wait, I just checked again, turns out it's a 7400(?) RPM HDD

Doesn't matter, 5400 and 7200 RPM don't say much about performance.

Update: I downloaded drivers from June 2019 (for the PC) and the situation was sorted! Thank you for all of your support.

No worries, although I would highly recommend either getting a 7200rpm HDD or get a larger SSD for games. 5400RPM is quite slow for a game library drive.
