Seems stuttering occurs with high FPS on a 144 hz monitor, but 60 fps constant is butter smooth.
My other nvidia settings are
vsync on and pre-rendered frames handled by 3dapplication
I bet this is the true fix!
At first i even said that my stutters could be duo to using the monitor at 144hz, but since others had the problem, i discard that option. What made me think this had logic: using my rig without the 1070 i had no stutters, but i was using the igpu and the monitor had to be at 60hz (because the igpu can't run it at 144hz). So, changing from the igpu to the 1070 made the stutters appear, but i also changed the hz of the monitor. Since some people did not have that issue on the exact same 1070, it could be from the fact they were using 60hz monitors while i was at 144hz or simply from faulty 1070 hardware or drivers.
So since you tested this and limited the FPS, it makes sense. Many people report problems playing at high fps, which again, tends to believe it's duo to hardware/drivers of the pascal line. Those people just had to limit the fps ingame to the stutters disappear, which is the same as what you did in the general desktop. I had no idea we could limit the fps that way and since i didn't want to give up from my 144hz settings, i never tried anything similar.
I'll try the new drivers to see if i get improvements on the video playback and if i don't, i'll definitely try what you did with the nvidia inspector. Thanks for your feedback.
