HELP! Stuttering/Choppiness with new Radeon R9 380

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

As the title suggests, I'm not sure of the exact term for this issue, but essentially FPS monitoring says I'm getting around 60 FPS with Vsync on and 80-90 with it off, but I get this weird constant stuttering that makes games like Dota 2 and Life Is Strange (which my previous card, a Radeon HD 6950, handled maxed out easily) almost unplayable. It happens in other games as well, but those two are the ones I've played the most since getting it.

 

It's my sig rig, and I've really not messed with the clocks at all on it since I wanted to see what kind of performance I got on stock settings first. If anyone has any ideas what might be causing this, I really appreciate your help.

Okay, so to elaborate, clarify, and update, the issue is some serious choppiness that occurs despite FPS monitors claiming I'm getting good frame rates. Essentially the opposite of smooth gameplay. I'm currently uninstalling and reinstalling my video drivers, so we'll see what that does. I've already checked my BIOS and power settings and nothing there is similar at all to other troubleshooting threads I've read online.

 

EDIT: Reinstalling drivers didn't fix anything. And I'm pretty sure it's not a power supply issue, since the 380 is actually supposed to use less power than the 6950. Ideas, anyone? Or should I just bite the bullet and return it, taking this as a lesson to not buy refurbished parts?

So there is some in game footage of my experience. The first doesn't look as bad, but with vsync off, the screen tearing is unbearable, despite the fact that for some reason it doesn't appear in the video. The second is with vsync on, and really representative of how it plays.

 

Oh, and this is after returning the first one and getting a new one out of the box, so it was clearly not just a bad card. Seriously, does anyone know what can be done to resolve this? I tried increasing the power limit % to 20 as these threads suggested, since the issue seemed similar, but that didn't help, either.

I've just finished updating/flashing my motherboard BIOS, and I've tried both driver versions (15.7.1 and 15.8 beta) available for Windows 10. Still getting the same issue. And before anyone suggests it's a Windows 10 problem, again, my four-year-old card worked just fine with Windows 10.

I'm waiting for heaven to download, but I probably won't have time to run it before work, although I'm not sure it will tell us anything we don't already know.

To clarify, it's not just the game I recorded in those videos, it's others as well. I just happened to record footage from that particular game.

Okay, so based on everything here, does anyone think there's a decent chance if I return this and get an Nvidia 960 that the issue will go away? Because honestly, I think that's my next move. I'm otherwise at a loss.

I am having the same issues with my R9 Fury. Not only that but games pretty much get set at a random FPS when launched and never go up. So half the time i launch a game i have to close it because of low fps and hope for better next try.

If you do switch, update this, im debating jumping ship too. This is unacceptable.

Can't say I've experienced that issue, but you have my sympathy. I'm frustrated enough with just the one problem, let alone having both at the same time.

 

Anyway, I'm out of ideas, so if no one else can come up with a workable solution by the time I'm off work tomorrow afternoon, I'm headed to Micro Center to exchange for the 960 then. One way or another, I'll update this thread with results by tomorrow evening.

are you willing to run another bench?

https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2336/futuremark-3dmark-11-v1-0-132/

use Stretched.

Also, download HWINFO64 if you don't have it and run it in the background. It measures temps, voltages, etc that might reveal stuff as well. Use the free version.

I would return your AMD one and go for a nvidia one.. I have also getting problems with my r9 290 oc 4GB vapor-x.. I would wish i had nvidia.. Had never problems with their cards. Only the price is mostly a lot higher.

Are you also using Windows 10? Sounds like a driver issue to me.
