    Hi all, I bought a MSI RTX2060 GAMING Z last week, and there is micro stuttering across all games I played, CSGO, League, Apex, even in Football Manager, it's like my screen has completely frozen for 0.5-1sec and then everything back to extremely smooth again, but it happenes so often

    I decided to plug my GTX970 back in, everything has gone smooth again, so I chose to replace my MSI 2060 with Asus Strix one, and the issue still exist, i starting to think there might be a bottlenecking.

    I'm not so sure about the bottlenecking part though, when the stutter happens I see CPU usage jumps to around 8x% and that's all I know, is it really bottlenecking? because from my research a i7 4790 shouldnt be bottlenecking the 2060

    Should I downgrade to 1660TI or get a budget new cpu? Which budget CPU should be the best for me?

    Spec:

    Motherboard: B85M E45

    Storage: Samsung EVO 850 250GB

    CPU: i7-4790

    Memory: Kingston 8GB x2

    PSU: Neoeco 550W

    Graphics: RTX2060

    Hey, just asking, did you fully uninstall the graphics drivers for a fresh install afterwards?

    Just a wild idea throwing it out there, do you maybe have another PSU to hook up your PC to it, to test if your PSU is degrading slowly? I can imagine it's already a bit older.
    I'm just asking because it might be worth to try and switch stuff before you order new hardware without even being sure what's the culprit ;)

    Can you post some of the benchmarks? Time Spy, Firestrike and even some games you play.

    4790 should not be bottlenecking 2060.

    ok so in Apex legends when i set texture streaming budget from 6gb to 4gb, the stutter doesn't happen anymore, but i think im able to set to 6gb supposedly?

    I heard its better to set step lower than how much vram you have. Still, i can set insane 8gb textures and still not have any stuttering (maybe little on the start) and i have much weaker card than you.

    Now you see that you should've gone with 2070 instead.

    so i ran time spy on my computer, i got 6782 in total, which is not poor i assume?

    7766 on graphics score, buy only 10ish fps on cpu score

    Here's Hilbert's result from his test, even with done a Haswell CPU like your's. What frequency are you running your 4790K, out of curiosity?

    also, could it be my ram?

    Honestly, I think when you look at Hilbert's benchmark and that he was running an octacore 5960X at 4.3GHz compared to your quad core at stock, I guess your benchmark result is viable.
    The question about your microstutter remains though, why it's showing micro stutter even after you re-installed everything, opposed to simply having lower fps. And I personally don't think it's the RAM...

    yes, i am having great fps in every game i played but a sudden drop to 30ish or frozen for a 0.5-1 sec is hugely annoying, especially when you are playing fps, im still struggling to see whats the reason

    Yes I have to admit, I do so too... maybe your RAM is limiting here with 1600MHz, and I guess only OC or another set of RAM could give you certainty over that, except some other fellow guru can help you here.

    but that doesnt explain i dont have issue with my 970!
    when im using 970, in intense gun fight, i get frames drop i understand that, but i never get a micro lag

    if you got sudden jumps in cpu usage you might wanna checxk LLC(Load Line Calibration) in bios to prevent vdrops, might solve some issues.

    Make sure you have newest mobo bios, and clear cmos just to be safe.

    Hardware wise your CPU shouldn't have much trouble with that GPU.

    edit:

    if your gpu usage in LOL or other games is low, then try to set a profile in 3d settings @ NVCP and use prefer max. performance for power. Might be your GPU downclocking too much.

    Hi all, i plugged my GPU into my friend's computer which include:

    i5 6500
    Z170a motherboard
    8GB KLEVV DDR4 2133mhz
    with 144hz monitor could run apex in very high settings without micro lag...

    so i think the problem is on the motherboard part or ram?
