    Causes of game stutter and sometimes BSOD on a 1070?

    What do you guys think are causes for in-game stutter and sometimes BSOD where the NVidia driver would fail to restart due to a freeze? I noticed it would stutter hard on smoke effects (nearly freezes on heavy smoke effects) in certain games like BF1 or Firestrike ultra benchmark though it plays fine with Witcher 3. These are one of the few games (there are more but can't remember atop of my head) where it does this. To be fair my system is nearing 9 years old and I will be upgrading this year but I would like to know what are your thoughts on the cause of this stutter. I've been reading around and from what I can see there is just too many reasons for it (cpu bottleneck, not enough power, bad pci-e slot, possibly ram). I'm trying to narrow it down so I'll list my old PC specs and no, overheating is not an issue (used to be until I got my Noctua NH-D15S). Mind you my old AMD 5870 gave no such issues until I upgraded to the 1070 using the same PCI-E slot. Only reason I upgraded was because the 5870 couldn't run some games or that somehow the drivers just weren't designed to run certain games though I am not sure (glitchy shadows in Arkham Knight and Doom wouldn't finish loading from 0% but was fine with 1070).

    Hi Morisato

    Things that can cause stuttery gameplay:

    1) Insufficient hardware.
    2) Game settings set too high, screen resolution and antialiasing are two settings that will impact performance the most.
    3) High ping in multiplayer games.
    4) Frames Per Second over your monitors refresh rate, if this happens enable V-Sync.
    5) Running in windowed mode.
    6) CPU or GPU throttling due to over heating but we know that isn't the cause.
    7) For the smoothest game play you want 60 FPS or above.

    This is all I can think of off hand, there may be other factors that cause it too.

    How many FPS do you get in Doom? With the 6700k and ROG Strix 1070 I average about 100 FPS at 1440p with the highest settings and antialiasing disabled.



    I recorded this with Xsplit Gamecaster which Asus gives you a free year with the purchase of an ROG Strix 1050 Ti/1060/1070/1080.

    I get about 100+ FPS or so with Doom. FPS isn't an issue as I can play these games fine. The issue is that when there is smoke/fog effects in play or possibly really close explosions, it just stutters the game. The more dense the smoke/fog the more it stutters to the point where it can freeze a bit before continuing or just outright BSOD as it fails to restart the drivers after crash.

    If it give bsod then defenatly faulty card , memory issue or even psu . You have to test the card in other system to make sure....
    Stress test the card with full system loaded can tell the story

    Game stutter is my pet hate and what i hate more than the stutter itself is the actual cause which as most off as know by know could be anything. The experiences i have had with game stutter is nothing short off a frustrating journey.Before i got to the bottom off my stuttering that i had,i had to change my Ram,cooling system and other minor hardware and even operating system.Now i am stutter free.What i can tell you though is that i kept my most expensive part being my cpu(in my case the 3690x) and worked around it and that being in a new graphics card and ram and operating system.I also kept my motherboard as there was no handshake issues with them.I have the strix 980ti and although it is a great card i did not think much off the cooling fan so i went a full water cooled system. Even though i have not had any stutter since i built a new system it is still hard to put my finger on the cause off my stutter.I made so many changes that it's hard to tell for sure.

    If your game isn't legit aka you downloaded from thepiratebay that could be why also. Try a legit game if this is the case....
