FPS Drops and overall stuttering

 Share

So im having these FPS Drops where it drops fast and then up to normal again. The game sort of stutters for half second and then goes up again. The wierd thing is that i've never ever had this problem before. AND even worse, it happens on every single game. From Terraria to CS:GO to Black Ops 3 to Forza Horizon 4. I've even noticed some stutters while watching youtube videos (the video itself stutters but not often) and when i move my cursor, the cursor also stutters at the same time as the video. I feel like i've tried everything and im so frustrated at this point im thinking about getting an entirely new PC.

What can this be all about?!. Software?, hardware? Should i try going back to WIN7? Thanks in advance
 

I also have some screens of cpu and gpu usage in the middle of a FPS Drop while playing.

Note: It happens on games where i have well over 200 FPS too!

This is likely caused by the vRAM being tapped out and the GPU is forced to swap graphic data in and out of shared GPU memory in slower system RAM.

It's vRAM limitation you are looking at.

Alright, Thanks! But how do i go about fixing this? New GPU with 6GB vRAM or faster RAM?

I would suggest you to drop the in-game graphics setting down a notch, which would relief the vRAM usage and help save some money for you now.

Faster system RAM will not help since vRAM is much faster than system RAM (And that's exactly why it stutters).

Alrighty! Any ideas why it does this to old games too though? Do hardware get worse over time? I mean my PC is about 5 years old now!

How old are the games you play? I'd imagine that 3 GB of vRAM can be used fairly quickly. 

from 2011 to present

Yeah, I think that the VRAM is the problem if you're only experiencing it on recent games. What CPU do you have and how much RAM?
