Just to mention, I have done several superposition unigine tests and so far I have not seen anything unusual. All the tests have been good so far. I have been playing for a couple of hours so far nothing.

Fingers crossed it’s nothing more than an in game issue and not a hardware one. I’m on my last legs with rmas here. Sorry for all of the problems people.

I've never played a single game ever where I haven't seen a graphical glitch of some sort. That to me is clearly a graphical glitch within Warzone

Are you assuming that this has something to do with the game rather than the gpu? Because this has never happened before whilst playing this game.
It definitely looks like its on the game side, and possibly by design. The machine is fine dude.
It takes a lot to go wrong to run into hardware issues (generally speaking).
Happy gaming.

Thank you for the response. I havent come across anything of that sort thus far.

Just loaded up Battlefield 2042 and when the screen went black as its loading up, I came across a few white horizontal lines going across the tv. They were not still lines, moving upwards and downwards on the top side only. I managed to record the moment it happened and when looking at the recording, nothing of that sort also appears.

I know its pretty difficult to speak on this but I have a feeling this is because I am playing on a tv. The TV also runs on auto game mode. Any idea how and why these white lines appear? I know how I have come across being here! Just learning my way with this one here!

I have done a few Unigine benchmark and stress tests and so far nothing has come up.

Few factors that are important are:
- HDR mode on windows is disabled whereas on Battlefield 2042 it is enabled.
- Game mode on windows is always on whereas Game mode on the Samsung Q80T is on Auto.
- I have come across these lines before when I was adjusting settings whilst in game on Warzone. Roughly remember it involving playing around with the "Scale & Layout" settings on windows.

The lines did appear to be related to settings related between the two devices.

Thanks again!

What TV is it? What make and model?

TV's are really poor for gaming unless they're the new Freesync 120Hz Samsung or LG TV's, but otherwise a TV will have serious screen tearing. That's likely what you're experiencing. If you haven't configured VSync it will be horrendous.

That's why you have gaming monitors, they're built to far higher standards than a TV.

It is the Samsung Q80T 55Inch. Any other model below 55 will only display [email protected] It also has Freesync too. Yeah honestly the white lines looked TV like if that makes sense.

This does not occur every time I load games up. I have seen it twice over the last two weeks or so.

Have you definitely configured Freesync on the display driver? If you haven't set it up, it won't be set automatically.

Through Nvidia control panel I have enabled G Sync.

Just to confirm my TV is displayed the FreeSync VRR too.

Ill try and get a video recording of the lines if it appears.

Hello all,

Hope everyones doing well and is safe from the outside world's recent news etc.

After a few hours of playing Warzone. I noticed that my PC would stutter every 5-10 seconds or so, with no change of FPS..Just the stutter.

I then decided to run the superposition benchmark and it would stutter every 5 seconds throughout the benchmarking test. I also have it on video.

Anybody with the experience here know what could be the issue or cause?

Regards,

Ippo

Whats the FPS count at these times?

If the FPS isn't changing then there's no stutter in the game? I would try on a monitor as I'm fairly certain these are TV issues.

Is the TV up to date?

As we've said from the very start, you really need a suitable monitor for this PC.

Have you monitored components temps and usage when the stutter happens?

Does the stutter happen all the time or only after you have been playing for hours?

The fps is consistent 113 and whenever it stuttered the fps wouldn’t move at all.

Regarding the tv, yes the tv is all up to date and this tv is very good for gaming specs wise.

Thing is when I ran superposition benchmarks I was able to record the stuttering. Even in the recording the stuttering also appeared.

I will download software that displays the component temperatures however the gpu and cpu temps were all within the region they’re supposed to be.

Should I also keep an eye on the RAM etc?

I only noticed the stutters last night after a few hours of warzone and then ran superposition to see if it also appeared; it did.

I then restarted the pc and ran superposition and it wasn’t appearing as frequently only once or twice.

As the FPS isn't changing you know it's not the PC stuttering otherwise you would see an FPS drop. It's something to do with the TV or possibly a wireless peripheral.

Also, have you set any cap for it to always be at 113, as that's not normal, there must have been a setting applied to make it do that? That needs to be turned off.

Have you got the recording?

Thing is, the fact that I got it stuttering on Superposition and that it shows on the video too..that can still mean its the tv?

Yes, absolutely. If it were the PC such as related to temps, that would cause a thermal throttle where the card would lower boost frequencies to compensate, as such you would see an FPS drop.

Have you got any setting related to capping FPS? If it's stuck at 113, there's something wrong, it shouldn't be.

Here are the links of two examples;



I have G SYNC on, on Nvidia control panel the refresh rate is set to 120Hz.

OK!

I have just noticed its frames boost up to 235.4 fps then immediately jumps back down.

It's impossible to see anything in those videos, the live data is too small to make out, for me at least, someone else may be able to see.

the average FPS in the video is 38.6.

In other scenarios where the benchmark is for a different resolution, there would be a drop rather than a boost of fps.

So just I have realised that the stutters are caused by FPS drops.

The fact that these stutters/fps drops occured after a few hours of gaming, is this normal? or is this a sign of a gpu issue?
