Above Spec, but occasional stuttering?

Hey,

I recently went through the process of upgrading a pre-built dell system 8700 and it now has:

45571251_10213450576082996_8889051340152

Even when I just upgraded the video card, and just had the previous i5 processor it ran games like Wolfenstein, GTA V, and all the three new tomb raider games on high detail settings, and fallout 4 on ultra. (maybe it ran others on ultra too, I just never looked because it looked awesome in game).

I just purchased far cry 5 a couple days ago off steam (the sale helped) and it runs well with all the graphics settings on the highest they can be (which is ultra for some, and just high for others) and with the HD textures on. However, every so often, every now and then it seems like it stutters for like half a second, and then goes back to being perfectly smooth again.

My processor is above the recommended i7-4770 3.6ghz, and I have twice as much ram as recommended (though ddr3), and my video card is above the recommended gtx 970 without a doubt. So, I am wondering what could be possibly causing this minor but at times annoying issue?

When I got the 3TB drive, I wanted to make it my boot drive, however I found out that I couldn't use it's full capacity if it was formatted with MBR, and I had to format it with GPT.

Windows installation said it couldn't install on a GPT partition, so I had to reinstall Win 10 on my 1TB drive, and format the 3TB as GPT. The 3TB was pruchased for game/video storage.

but you may indeed be right as I never noticed this issue with GTA V, Fallout 4, Tomb Raider, DOOM(2016).

try copy over the game files to the 1TB boot drive, and start the game (directly through the exe) there.

i had the same CPU until recently but paired with a 980ti, i upgraded the CPU because i noticed similar things that in some games it just lacked the power as soon as there was anything else running on another monitor.

 

especially in Far cry 5 im not surprised it happens as this game is very CPU heavy.

It just finished copying, I'll try it in a bit, see what happens.

Well, I tried that but steam still launches it, and I think steam is then using the game files from the steam folder, and not the folder on the boot drive I copied it too. There's less of it but it does still happen. However, I think that's because as I said, steam is still using the steam folder.

It shouldn't matter where the game is installed.

 

Is there anything in particular happening when the stuttering happens? To me this sounds more like it's loading a new area. The game uses Denuvo, which would require decrypting the game data if the game needs to load in something and that steals the processor's time.

Well, no specific thing happening no.

I did just update my drivers last night, the drivers I had previously were from june of 2017. My new drivers are just a few days old. SO far, I haven't noticed it again. Hopefully it keeps up not coming back.
