Im also getting stuttering but during watching videos like Youtube / Netflix. I would say it is hard to detect because it is only really noticeable during a moving shot/scene.
Im getting brief dropped frames (about 20 per minute) when watching 1080p60 Videos via YouTube using google chrome. Audio is fine but there is brief moments (about 0.5s) when the video lags like microstuttering or jitter, this happens randomly maybe few times per minute.
Firefox says there are no dropped frames but the microstuttering is still there but maybe not so often.
Windows 10 x64 Fall Creators update
Video quality settings 1080p 60fps
test video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1La4QzGeaaQ
The video stats show video codec VP9 (303) and Audio codec opus (251).
Overall CPU utilization is about 10% with 4 of the threads shows 20-30% utilization.
I have tried the following Troubleshooting steps but so far it hasn't helped:
- Bios default settings (load optimized settings)
- Cleared CMOS (removed battery and shorted the CLRTC pins on motherboard)
- Fresh install of Windows 10 x64 Fall Creators update
- AMD Chipset Drivers installed (17.30 dated 2nd Oct 2017)
- Windows 10 automatically installed 17.7 AMD Graphics drivers but I have also tested with the AMD Fall Creators update Beta drivers.
- Hardware acceleration disabled or enabled in web browser doesn't seem to make much difference.
- Not seeing any networking issues or packet loss (YouTube shows 30s video buffer)
- Reseated the RAM and tried different slots on the motherboard and using a single stick one at a time
- Memory stress tests dont show any problems e.g. memtest86 or HCI memtest
- CPU stress tests dont show any problems e.g. prime95 1 hour.
- Temperature seems normal CPU 25-30c idle, gaming 45-50c, stress tests 65c.
- I recently purchased a new PSU but the issue happened with my old PSU so I dont think its related to the power supply.
My CPU build date is UA1716PGT and Im wondering if this could be anything to do with the segfault issue.
Im thinking the issue could be either CPU, Motherboard, RAM or GPU related but it is difficult to test without spare hardware at hand.
I dont know if we have the same issue or not but it would be useful to know if you experience the same issue watching online videos.Edited by os4321 - 10/19/17 at 1:18pm
