    Anyone experience this? I’ll get small hiccups or studders when I deploy and first walk around the map for a few seconds. Then there gone.

    Sometimes this doesn’t happen at all.

    Anyone experience this?

    I’m playing in DX12 at 4K gpu memory restriction (ON)

    It almost feels like full VRAM. But, it’s not full.

    Try turning off Shader Cache for the BF1 profile in the Nvidia driver.

    If you drop your graphics to minimal does the issue remain?

    Do you have "Performance mode or Adaptive mode" (I think that's what they're called) checked in Nvidia control panel under "Manage 3D settings"? It defaults to battery saver mode whenever you do a driver update.

    Sometimes this will cause low FPS in the first few seconds of running a game or benchmark.

    I'd try setting max prerender frame to 1 too

    So I think I figured it out. I played the game today and it was just butter smooth! I couldn’t figure out why it was running so good.

    After exiting, I realized my gpu overclocks didn’t apply at startup.

    So apparently running either my gpu memory or gpu core overclocks to high causes these stutters.

    Has anyone ever experienced this?

    I have recreated this over and over, and I’ve isolated the issue to video card overclocks being to high?

    I dunno, it seems like that wouldn’t cause it. But it definetly is the culprit.

    +775 to +835 memory with +100 gpu causes stutters.

    If I run +100 and + 600 memory it is smooth as it should be.

    too much OC on memory will cause ECC to kick in and try to process content in memory again

    For the life of me I couldn't figure it out! I repasted with Liquid metal, then went back to standard past, now I'm back on liquid metal again.. So I thought I had messed up my laptop, or GPU or something. It only does, or "DID" this in BF1, and the memory will run stable without artifacts with these 800+ high overclocks with no crashing in anything. So this is the first time I have experienced this with video card overclocking, usually it is either stable, or its artifacting, or it crashes.. BF1 Calls for 6GB on ULTRA detail with TAA on @4K.

    I'm just glad I figured it out..

    just an update to this thread! The initial studdering that was caused by my GTX1070 being overclocked to high, was not true. I think its possible that it was a coincidence, and I thought the HIGH overclocks were causing the studders but they indeed were not!

    Turns out, I did find the actual problem and it was my CPU not having enough voltage. At the time of this post, I was running 4.2Ghz with a -0.125 undervolt, and it was not totally stable. The game would studder, and then become smooth after playing for just a few seconds. I could run 4.2Ghz with -0.100V and it would be smooth 24/7 with no studders present.

    I'm back on Liquid metal again and running 4.7 Ghz adding +0.115V. The game has been very smooth! My CPU stays under 93C temp throttle range. And it never throttles in heavy gaming! Usually sitting around 88-90C.. Some people may cringe at these temps. But, I think its ok!

    Just wanted to update this thread! It took me forever to find the issue.
