    GTX 1060 stuttering / lag spikes in every game

    Hello, this is my build:
    • i5-6600k (no OC)
    • ASUS MAXIMUS RANGER VIII (BIOS 3404)
    • MSI GTX 1060 6G
    • Samsung SSD 850 evo 250gb
    • WD Caviar Blue 1TB
    • G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200 DDR4 (XMP profile)
    • Dual monitor: Zowie XL2411 144hz + BenQ GW2260 60Hz


    I get stuttering /lag spikes in the following titles:
    • PUBG: random lag spikes with GPU frequency core drops from 1911Mhz to 1520Mhz and GPU usage drops.
    • Rocket League: random lag spikes when a player join a match and during the match with fps drops.
    • GTA V: literally unplayable without VSync, stuttering every seconds.
    • Rust and Ark: random lag spikes and when loading chunks with fps drops.
    • Total War Warhammer: stuttering while on strategic map with fps drops.


    What I've done so far:

    • Playing with the lowest graphics settings possible with and without Vsync.
    • Tried adaptive VSync and Fast VSync
    • Update all drivers, GPU, Intel chipset, Asmedia, Ethernet... and tried to revert back to old GPU drivers
    • Check DPC latency with Latencymon: dxgkrnl.sys, nvlddmkm.sys.
    • Tweak BIOS settings, disabling Intel speedstep, default settings, no RAM XMP profile, disable Turbo mode.
    • Tried any sort of reccommended Nvidia control panel settings like Cache shader, Thread optimization, Perfomance mode.
    • Tried MSI Gaming App OC mode and Gaming mode.
    • Move games on the primary disk.
    • Steam cache file verification.
    • Fixed the custom file paging size as minimum as possibile or as reccommended one.
    • Re-seat monitor cables.
    • Clean boot.
    • Playing with two different monitors at once at different refresh rates.
    • HDD full defragmentation.
    • Disabling IPV6, NetBIOS and any other ethernet adapter.
    • Checked temps and Windows services and tasks.
    • Disabling firewall and Defender.


    What I've not done is to re-install the OS or update to the latest motherboard BIOS.
    Do you have any other suggestion?

    What PSU do you have, and have you tried this card on another computer?

    I would try a clean 1607 with 378.92.

    In addition to the above, you can try using the latest version of DDU driver uninstall (select safe mode option).

    Hi amphetamina

    Even at 1080p 60Hz, gaming on 2 monitors is a little much for a GTX 1060.

    Have you tried using just one monitor?

    If you have antialiasing enabled in the game settings, try disabling it.

    Yes, I've tried two different monitors with two different cables (HDMI and DVI).
    I've a brand new GTX 1060 3gb on my system and it does the same, Intel diagnostic tool found no errors also.

    What could help us diagnose the problem is if you could record some gameplay with MSI Afterburner's On Screen Display, this might tell us something.

    As an example here is a game video I recorded, this is with the ROG Strix 1070.

    These are three video showing the issue:

    And this is a video of GTA V playing without Vsync, half and regular one:

    Awesome !

    Your gameplay looks good, the gpu looks to be working fine and you have high Frames Per Second. FPS drops in games is normal depending on where you're at, what you're doing, draw distance etc.. For instance I'll be playing watch dogs 2 just standing somewhere and I'll have say 100 FPS, if I turn around 180 degrees it may drop down to 60 FPS.

    One thing that can cause the gpu to throttle clock speeds is if you hit the power target or too high of temps, your temps are fine so you may be hitting the power target.

    The lag in multiplayer games can be because of the server or your ping.

    I do see GTA V is using more than 3GB of Vram so I'd put the 6GB back in, once the 3GB of Vram is used up performance will suffer bad.

    I wonder if the freezing could be your ram needing a little tweaking.
