I am having an issue trying to get just my card stock figured out. In low usage scenarios the card won't stay boosted or boost AT ALL, the voltage drops or whatever and I am getting stuttering where there shouldn't be! For example> Valkyria Chronicles, 1080p+8xSGSSAA@30FPS cap+ 1/2 Refresh lock will boost some of the time with GPU usage averaging between 40-50% with ~1.8GB VRAM usage. However during pre-battle scenarios where characters chat via boxes with 3D rendering when moving characters around or switching between characters it causes MASSIVE frametime spikes with visible stuttering and full on stops for about a quarter second or so. Remove the Anti Aliasing, and the card doesn't boost. PERIOD. Stays at 1177 @ 1.062v, no stuttering. At 1280x720 with the same Vsync+AA settings, the card again doesn't boost AT ALL and has the same stuttering problems and uses about 30% GPU In the Dragon Quest X benchmark for example, at both 720p & 1080p 0 boosting at 720p, very little if any at 1080p with ridiculously LOW GPU usage. Resulting in low framerates and stuttering. I have the same issue with the Resident Evil 6 Benchmark. Also Monster Hunter Online Benchmark This is obviously with the card set to "Prefer max performance" and obscenely low temps by my standards (Less than 50c max) What do I have to do to get it to stay boosted in low usage scenarios?:bang::bang: What's the point having a more powerful card that can beast any AA in DX9 games with low GPU usage but can't stay boosted or causes stuttering? Even my old GTX 570 at 1280x720 with the above Valkyria Chronicles AA settings (&HBAO+) ran 100% stable with no stuttering problems.
