Stutter/Freezes

Dem@nDem@n Posts: 564Player
As the topic description says i still get 1 sec freezes and stutters with every nvidia driver released after December 2014.
While playing other games like GTA5 switching back and forth drivers every time i want to play AAPG is not really an option.
Any news on this front?

    Not sure if this applies, I can't test it. If it's just the editor or the engine as well.

    Could it be related to MFAA setting in the newer drivers?

    Yeah me too.. a few weeks ago when you told me to use that older December driver, things did run better.. could go back to it.. but the question is what the heck is going on

    I don't have an Nvidia card, so I don't know what to suggest. There isn't much information on the web.

    I take it you have the energy settings set to performance already?
    Also take a look at disabling coreparking
    But if it actually is a bug in the drivers/UE engine, no setting will really help.
    Fix is then use a different driver.

    Many have this issue, nobody know the cause. I had it before three fresh Windows 7 install. I still have a little micro freezes after joining a new game, just before round start and sometimes when I get killed.
    Version: 347.88
    Release Date: 2015.3.17

    My screen also freezes sometimes, maybe once per day... it can last upto about 5 seconds...
    Still happens after more fresh windows installations.
    No idea what is causing this.


    specs

    msi gtx n760
    i7 4770
    asus z87-a

    A performance log could be useful, FRAPS does this nicely, you have to be a bit active to get useful readings tho, theres no reason to log loading screens etc.
    "stat unitgraph" is a useful command to visually see the performance, and where the stutter origins from

    I've played a few times over the last couple of weeks with the latest nVidia driver 350.12 (for GTA5) and have never had a freeze. I use these AAPG settings with no problems:

    1920x1080
    Full Screen
    V-Sync Off
    Anti-Aliasing Morph
    Tex Quality Max
    Char Shadows On
    Shader Quality High
    Max Anisotropy 16
    Motion Blur, Dynamic Lighs, Dual Render Scopes. all checked.
    Dynamic Tracer Lights, checked.
    Ambient Occlusion, checked
    Simulated munitions, checked.

    It might be just me but using Motion Blur seems to remove any screen skips or jumps.

    What do the DEVS have to do for inclusion of supported games by Nvidia?

    I am also running Win 7 ultimate 64. This is strange. We both have 970's. I don't have an SSD but I wouldn't ever think that's a problem because it's still SATA.

    Could this be a heat issue on the GPU? I have the ACX 2.0 version (2 fans for different temp ranges).
