  1. Hey all, I just have a curiosity I would like satiated; does Vram usage grow the longer you play a game? I have been playing gears of war 5, running at ultra 1440p and for the most part it looks and runs great. I understand at a base level how vram works and that vram usage recordings aren't necessarily how much it's actually "using" and needs as much as it is what it's usually to cache things just because it has the memory available. However, when I first boot into a missing in GoW5 it records using around 7.1gb of Vram; after about an hour and a half the game started having minor
  2. It may be related; but what I might also add is check antivirus software and other system software. On my old PC, whenever I would use anything that intensively read/writes to my hard drive, especially downloads, it would cause my whole system to stutter including audio. Thankfully audio does not stutter in far cry, simply the frame rate. Also I had NZXT Cam installed previously, and it caused system hard crashes and bitches no matter what programs or games I was playing so check for things like that also
  3. I also just wanted to include these screenshots, to see if I am missing any data in the MSI monitoring software that is worth checking; the two screenshots are taken running the Far Cry 5 benchmarks, and were taken at the point where the game dropped a frame and stuttered (the framerate is capped at 60 fps and drops to 59 which is where the stutter is noticeable, and produces a 17.5ms frametime) as you can see though, nothing is even close to maxing out except for VRAM which I have to check because every time I ran the benchmark the VRAM usage increased by 100MB
  4. That's great too know, thanks for that
  5. Yea too be honest, even if it isn't causing my own personal stutters, I think it's about time to pay more attention too the hard-drives I put in my PC, the main one with a large majority of my games is only 5400rpm. The next thing I will be trying is transferring it over too an SSD to see if that helps my stutters. It's just odd because I've had stutter with most of my games; - I played the AC Ezio Trilogy with little amounts of micro stutter, but the games are known for i - Far Cry 5 now - Gears of War 4 would stutter after like an hour, but then sometimes no
  6. Potentially, I am looking into my installed extensions although I don't have that many installed. Even taking those 2gb out, is 6gb of ram at idle a normal amount for a 16gb system?
  7. I hadn't opened anything new, it was running in the background with pages open from my uni work
  8. Good evening, I was playing league of legends before with my sister, and the game, followed by my whole PC became extremely laggy; when I was seeing why my RAM was at 100% usage, primary due to Mozilla Firefox. I closed Mozilla, and that fixed the issue at that point in time however afterwards I noticed that just light browsing, without any games or intense programs running in the backgrounds till results in about 8gb of my RAM being used. Is this normal? Attached is the task manager information (yes I know at that point I was using 2gb with Mozilla and almost 1gb with NVIDIA Broad
  9. When you say you've noticed the issue with three games, have you played others and not had issues?
  10. Erm, things such as the service host processes, runtime brokers, security authority processes, nvidia container (which I can't seem to stop), bluetooth drivers. Basically all the windows processes that I'm not sure I can just shut off. Unfortunately I can't even really close the ubisoft services because that has caused issues upon itself
  11. Thanks Vishera, Unfortunately I have already tried playing the game with everything but the essentials disabled, including all antivirus software, monitoring software, etc. The results remain consistent throughout
  12. Good afternoon all, I have recently started playing Far Cry 5 (yes I know I'm very late) and upon playing the game I noticed very odd performance, presented in the form of stuttering; Running the in-game benchmark without vsync enabled (limited to 125 fps for other reasons) produced a maximum of 125fps, with an average of 117fps and minimum of 73.7fps. This was running the game at ultra, 1080 using the system specs signed below. This system I feel should not receive these results in this game, and when checking CPU and GPU usage, CPU maxed out at around 45% and GPU maxed at 60%; so
  13. Hey all, So I'm running a rig with a RTX3070 and AMD 5600X; I haven't given my full system specs as I don't need information pertaining specifically too my rig, but just more of a general understanding of potential factors. I booted up Far Cry 5 for the first time and played it, however I noticed it felt a little off. Running benchmarks showed that at 1080p it would shoot to high FPS, and have drops all the way down below 100 at certain points, on average sitting around 140ish however my GPU sat at around 60% and CPU at 50% usage. I upped the resolution to 1440p and my
  14. Hey there, Unfortunately what I can provide probably won't be of too much help. I did several things, and whilst the issue is likely not entirely solved, it is to a point where I am no longer concerned: So I tried re-installing my NZXT cooler, reapplying thermal paste, and it made a change about about 2C, clearly not enough to make me feel better. I changed the PBO settings on my motherboard, which made next to no difference, at least not sitting outside simple margin or error. So, from this, I brought a new cooler, the Corsair H100i Pro XT (good
  15. Unfortunately I don't have a photo to show exactly what I mean, however I feel I can give adequate explanation; Sometimes I play gears of war 4 and after around 30 minutes it starts stuttering, getting progressively worse until I can't play anymore. Doing a benchmark generally shows 99% GPU bound, however when the game is stuttering it shows only 95% GPU bound and shoes spikes of CPU bound gameplay. Checking MSI afterburner shows no drops in CPU clock speed, nor any spikes in CPU usage (stays around 30%). When I restart the game, seemingly the issue goes away again. Has anyone had
