    Hello,

    I have really Issues with the RTX 2080 Card - i have my 3rd Card (MSI 2080 TRIO X 2 times and now the ASUS) now and also switched Motherboard,CPU ,RAM and even PSU to test.

    But I still have Stuttering while Gaming - Benchmarks seems fine.

    I have almost a very similar setup like yours in this Test:

    I7-8700K
    ASUS STRIX-F Z390
    ASUS Strix 2080OC
    G.SKILL TRIDENTZ 3200 DDR4 /16
    Windows 10 64 BIT 1809
    Seasonic 750W

    Could you maybe make a Video and show your Frametimes while playing BFV with DX11?
    Or CS:GO?

    I have frametime spikes going up to 30-50ms

    You would really help me!

    I tried very very much.
    • Installing Windows 3 times
    • switched from M2 drive to SSD
    • tried with and without VSYNC
    • with and without OC on Processor
    • with framelimiter and without
    • switching all hardware as i wrote above
    • tried clean driver install with DDU
    • tried all poweroptions in windows and for the GPU in Nvidia Control-Panel
    • updatet all Drivers for the Motherboards
    • updatet BIOS for MOBO
    • switched Screen
    • tried Intelligent Standby List Cleaner
    • played on 1440P and 1080P
    • tried various settings in Bios like turning C-States and powersaving options off
    ... I build so many PCs and this is the first error I really can't find a solution for other than it's related to the GPU.

    I dont know about you but MSI cards sometimes have the tendency to do these types of things. I personally think that their custom board design is the reason why. But more down the line it is a reliable card though.

    I had some weird crap with xmp profile on my gpu in the past it was a faulty bios realease then they fixed that in 2 weeks but my screen went all green with stripes and had a hard time to fix it by reseting my bios to default dont know but if the bios does not clock the memory right strange things can happen and don't you have another card to put in to check if it's your setup or the GPU

    Yeah indeed a Driver was my first thought almost - but in Nvidia Forums (a lot of people have issues) some guys persist on their opinion that it MUST have to do with our Computers and software... I mean there are probably a lot people out there without having issues.

    You think such a maybe compatibility problem can be fixed in the near future with a new NVIDIA Driver?

    I honestly don't know if it's really the driver. I'd just not expect 3 cards back to back to be the issue (the cards themselves), and there's been talk about issues with RTX cards and their performance (microstutters), but I can only imagine it has to be a driver issue. Sadly I can't test myself since I don't own a 2080, sorry.

    Are you using MSI Afterburner?
    Also check background apps!

    You did not mention how many monitors you are using!!??? ;)

    UPDATE

    Specifically look for the Asus Updater. I had that running over and over on my PC and it was causing all sorts of spikes and issues until I removed it. Was eating CPU time like mad. It came with my Prime Z370a software bundle, and seems completely useless. Along with that, the Asus lighting control caused a lot of CPU usage and spikes when on anything other than a few color modes. Check each mode and the CPU usage if you are using that tool. There was only a couple that did not eat up CPU usage. Eventually I fully uninstalled the lighting software and all the lighting still works without the services running in the background.

    Not sure if that is what is going on for you, but thought I would at least share that as it was causing issues for me similar to what sounds like you are having. I imagine the z3xx STRIX board is similar to the Prime z3xx at least in that regard.

    As I wrote the Stuttering is frametime Spikes that are pretty frequently going up to 50ms sometimes even to 120 ms

    There is no such thing as microlags.

    I don't have a system like yours at all,but i had stutters in BFV what i did
    check your sound settings this gave me cpu spikes that showed on the frametime graph my settings in game, use headphones and set to surround and disable surround on PC i have Logitech g633
    If you use the in game FPS limiter for g sync don't. use RTSS this gives me a near flat graph other than small bumps except when you die or spawn. BFV FPS limiter gives me jumps of about 8 ms
    and i use Wagnards intelligent standby list cleaner, you might not need this but if the stutters start after about half hour game play try it
    and also try a little more system agent voltage on your OC
    Don't know if this will help you but it's worth a try

    @ zane2k Try some simple stuff, Get "Driver booster" and update motherboard drivers, " Try DDU and reinstall latest nvidia drivers clean, Another stupid program to try is Razer "Game booster" its good at setting power profiles and cutting out " endtask" stuff running in the backround. Also try disable onboard audio and see if you still get same problem i always used a sound card. There crap tips try them.

    Seriously, don't install Driver Booster and Game Booster. Just don't.

    Also, onboard audio can be just as good as a sound card these days.. I'm using a PrimeZ370-A which also has a Realtek S1220A that I found to be better than my previous Xonars.. His board looks to have the same sound chip... I'm sure there are better sound options out there, but he shouldn't have to disable it if he's having no audio problems. If you are going to argue "cpu usage" then just don't. This isn't 2005 and modern onboard audio isn't a problem.

    I think it's safe to say it's definitely not a hardware issue. I actually had the exact same problem with all of the 416 series drivers, went back to 411.70 and problem solved. Though I am now using 417.35 (which were just released 4 days ago) and the stuttering problem is gone. Other than that I don't know what else it could be
