Help with crossfire random stuttering

post #1 of 68
Thread Starter 

I have set up my 5850 crossfire but every time the GPU is loaded there is a massive amount of random stutter and lag. Normally it will run fine for 5-10 seconds followed by 10 seconds of extreme stuttering, then it will run fine again for x duration of time.

Also I have noticed that after multiple events of random stuttering in one sitting causes my overclock to automatically reset itself.

Have a look at the video, you'll know what I'm talking about.

Non-reference 5850 crossfire
900/1150/1.17v each
WITH custom fan speed profile (I have a feeling this is causing something)
Maxed Crysis settings
With latest CAP4 profiles
11.2 drivers
Exclusively using Trixx to overclock and control fan speed

So after some more testing it seems that the GPU OC resets are correlated with temperature and fan speed.

That's not microstutter, you're vram choked. Your fps are super low right, and jump around?

Not really, when gameplay is smooth it is between 30 and 40 fps. When it lags it will go to <5 fps, and then after a short duration of time it will go back up to the 30-40 range.

Same thing happened at 1920x1080 too, except I was in the 50-60 range and it dipped down to <5.

So I don't think it's vram related.

More testing yields same results...

Hey Bro,

Im certainly no expert here but I was having similar issues and went into drivers and set to default.

I seemed to sort out my stutter but it was not as bad as yours

Hope someone with insane cleverness can come on and answer

Define maxed?

VH with anything more than 4x AA will choke your cards.

Reducing the settings did decrease the frequency of stuttering, but that's not the issue i'm trying to solve.

Do you know how I can get rid of the random stuttering and lag? I know my cards are capable of running it because at some points it will shoot up to 30-40 fps for a good 10 or so seconds.
