Mini-freezes/hitching when Saving in-game

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So pretty much every time any game performs an autosave (or in games that allow it, manual saving) I'm getting mini-freezes for like a few seconds. There's also hitching whenever entering new areas or doing stuff like discovering rooms or tagging collectibles. This is happening across games - currently I'm playing Hitman 2 and Batman: Arkham Origins and both games suffer these issues. Never had this problem before and I played both titles previously on this machine without an issue.

 

My rig meets all requirements (see specs below), I'm running the latest Nvidia drivers, Windows is up to date. No disk errors or fragmentation on the HDD the games are on.

 

I've even reinstalled the drivers manually as people say the GeForce Experience app messes things up. What's going on?

... Some games are really designed to 'freeze' while saving, tho, of what I know.

Or, since HDD's performance are just.. Deteriorating, after some time. Probably that's why.

 

I actually have reduction of HDD performance lately after 3 years and more of use. HWInfo reports of 19% usage indicator already. It can't even load Dota 2 as fast as before anymore.


Humor me, as you should do.
