    Hope it IS related to the 970 pro. The alternative is that it is related to your motherboard, or memory. You need to decide quick before you lose the ability to return for refund.

    Try setting Metro Exodus to use DX11 instead and see if the problems go away or improve. DX12 is a known crap API, and performance can be hit or miss using DX12.

    It was DX 12 on Metro exodus. Nothing to worry.

    Just like you said. it's DX 12 issues with Metro exodus, damn unstable game

    Well it didn't have until so far. Suddenly it has issues. Don't know what it is. But it seems like I'm not the only one with DX12 issues on this game. LOTS of people have all kinds of issues and crashes with DX12 on Metro exodus it seems like.
    And of course, My GPU isn't the same as yours.

    The notebook RTX gpu's only just released.

    Actually, it's not an unstable game, just an unstable API (DX12). Metro Exodus plays as smooth as silk on my desktop, without so much as a hiccup on anything. Many find it super stable, but many others have had an experience similar to yours. If you find it runs well using DX11, then it's pretty safe to point the finger at DX12. It may be some folks have something buggered up with their Windows 10 installation that manifests in DX12 instability. Hard to say. But, the RTX and DLSS features add nothing to the game and I find the experience playing Exodus on Windows 7 with DX11 absolutely outstanding and with no discernible difference to when I boot into Windows 10 and play it with RTX and DLSS enabled (on the same system) other than a diminished framerate. So, just enjoy the game if it plays well in DX11 mode and don't burn any calories trying to figure out why DX12 is an unstable pile of crap.

    The above scenario applies exactly the same to BFV. Plays flawlessly under DX12 with RTX and DLSS enabled on my desktop, but we know that many unhappy gamers have found it to be a hot mess. DX12 is the lowest common denominator... that wonderful poopalicious Windows OS X abortion.
