RTX 3080 is underperforming and microstutters in games

Hello everyone,

 

I watched few youtube videos with different benchmarks in different games and I noticed that my GPU is underperforming and also microstutters.

I played Witcher 3 on 4K and everything was set on max,however every 10-15 seconds I got dips under 60FPS which is weird considering that the game is 5 years old and runs great on other systems above 85 FPS.

I also played Shadow Of The Tomb Raider with everything set on max and I had terrible microstuttering and game almost never ran on 60FPS and more like 45-50FPS.

As for Call of Duty Modern Warfare,it ran great without any dips or stuttering 4K at max.

Another game that stuttered was Red Dead Redemption 2 where I got 1-2 microstutter per second.

 

I looked on Nvidia forums and users said that turning Gaming Mode in Windows setting will resolve stuttering problems,but I didn't worked for me.

I have latest GPU drivers installed
 
Do you know what could cause these microstutters and why is my GPU underperforming?

Here are my full system specs:

Did you DDU and wipe your old graphics card drivers or is this a whole new build? When you get the stutters, is the GPU at full usage?

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

I used DDU to remove drivers from my old graphic card.

I haven't checked GPU usage,but I'm going to run Red Dead Redemption 2 benchmark and get back with results in 10-15 minutes.

OK,I ran benchmark in Red Dead Redemption 2 and GPU wasn't at full usage during stuttering.

When there was no stutters GPU usage was at 97%-98%,and when there were stutters usage dropped to low 80s and even high 50s at one point.

UPDATE:

I ran benchmark on Shadow of The Tomb Raider and my GPU usage was sometimes on 80% and sometimes 99%.I tried to run it with V-sync ON and Off and I got same results.

When GPU usage was 99% and framerate was 60FPS,even then I noticed stuttering.

Can someone please tell me what to do?

As Voluspa said, you should try DDU'ing your graphics drivers and give it another shot. Then report back?

I will try to DDU drivers again.I'll be back in 15 minutes with results.

Out of curiosity, what PSU are you using and are you using one 8 pin PCIE power cable that splits into 2?

If that doesn't work, then I would suggest reinstalling windows (that's kind of a last resort option but I don't see what else you could do). Seeing as you most likely upgraded from another GPU, there might be some kind of a problem between switching the old GPU for the new one.

How much ram are you running? Are things running in the background/uploading to the cloud, .etc. You have a high end system and would recommend a min of 32gb of ram, not for gaming but for a better user experience, provided you don't already have it or more.

Forgive me El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education...

No,I use two separate PCIE power cables.

I'm currently in process of uninstalling drivers.I was thinking about reinstalling Windows,but are chances high that new Windows will help?

I'm using 2x8GB DDR4 3200Mhz.

I'm running things in background like MSI Center,DS4Windows (PS4 controller software),and Avast Antivirus

@Chris Redfield Pick up another 2x8 kit, ram is available and cheap right now!

I'm not proficient enough to say whether it's going to work or not, but as a last resort it's definitely worth doing. Maybe see if other people have better advice (as they already have) :)

This is another great point. What is your RAM usage in those benchmarks? If you can, post a screenshot of the game running the benchmark it might help a lot.

I'm not sure how to make the screenshot,during benchmark on random parts or after when results are shown?

Can I use MSI afterburner to show RAM usage during benchmark?

You could, or you could push the PrintScreen button on your keyboard, go to Paint, push CTRL+V, crop out any thing that might be on a second monitor that you wouldn't want us to see then upload here.

It looks like micro stutters is pretty common on those with different versions of drivers. I'm just going through and trying to eliminate simple things(Bad drivers still installed, not enough power delivery, not enough ram for graphics settings). 

If you turn the settings down, do you still get the stutters? If the games can run it, does DLSS help or not?

Thats your issue then. 

 

everything you said sounds like psu, and this psu isn't the best and known to have issues with 3xxx cards. 

I'm actually one of those people who thinks that anonymity is overrated. Some people confuse privacy and anonymity and think they go hand in hand, and that protecting privacy means that you need to protect anonymity. I think that's wrong. Anonymity is important if you're a whistle-blower, but if you cannot prove your identity, your crazy rant on some social-media platform shouldn't be visible, and you shouldn't be able to share it or like it.

Are you 100% sure that it's the PSU?

I know that my PSU had issues with Ampere series,but those issues were crashes during gaming,not stuttering?

That does sound like a PSU issue, if you had problems even with the last gen card. Ampere is the 3000 generation btw, you probably meant Volta?

I had GTX 1080 before this card and I didn't have any issue.

Anyway try deleting drivers with DDU and it didn't worked.

I manage to make some screenshots of GPU and RAM usage.

EDIT:I don't know why are SS that small.

If you can't see screenshots try hold right CTRL and press + that should zoom in screenshots.

If it's problem I can try to take new screenshots?

No im not, but it seems kinda likely - they have known issues. we can theorize about this all day, but you gotta go ahead and get a replacement that's known to work with these cards. if the issue persists return it, but I'm pretty sure it'll fix it.

Nope they have issues with 3xxx cards I think Seasonic even issued a statement... 

 

Again, this sounds like a psu issue... reinstalling drivers or more RAM isn't gonna fix it... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah,I heard that this PSU had issues with 3xxx series and caused some PCs to reboot.

I never had issues with it,at least not with restarting under load.

I noticed that while I was taking screenshots I saw that my RAM is using only 8 GB instead of 16 GB,do you perhaps know why?
