If anyone is interested I have found a REMARKABLE miracle cure for Micro Stutter
I have been suffering BADLY with frame glitching
& just generally difficult to explain, grainy movement and frame rates
It was not So bad out doors, where i mostly average the Vsync limit of 60FPS, but whenever I went INSIDE a cave or anything it got so bad it would actually make me feel physically sick after a couple of minutes.
My eyes aren't exactly 100% and the persistent random jitter causes so much strain it was actually physically painful.
I tried all sorts of remedies , and not Vsync'ing but then all the motion tears like crazy and looks terrible for a different reason.
I even tried limiting my gfx to lesser frame rates like 40fps, to see if it could ease the load on the card and although it did help a little it now didn't gel with the monitors refresh rate and caused a different kind of unpleasantness.
Then I got to thinking, why so much worse INSIDE a cave or castle or whatever... surely there's LESS work to do in there and the GFX should be handling even better?
So I got to doing some improvised analysis and I realized that that's EXACTLY what the problem is.
The GFX are running TOO fast
and if you monitor the ABSOLUTE frame rate and not a per second average - it was actually pushing through almost 64 frames per second even though the 60 fps limit "seemed" to be running.
The jitter and stutter was NOT my card struggling to keep up - it was uncontrolled OVER performance.The card is running so fast extra frames are breaking through the limiter.
So I did something that seemed stupid - I used BandiCam to limit my frame rate to 60 FPS
even though that's exactly what the Vsync should be doing anyway, and that's exactly what frame rate was showing in the first place.
BAM! instantly my GFX ran liquid smooth, and have continued to run perfectly ever since
- now the only stagger I get is if I enter a high detail scene scene that drops my rate down a bit but that's perfectly acceptable and hardly ever happens!
SO there it is ppl - If you have Micro stutter that you just cant address - try using BandiCam to limit your FPS to 60 - it works fantastically well for me.
(IF you know of anyone who has had this trouble - do them a favor and suggest this? I know somebody was talking about this a hundred pages, or so, ago - but I cant find the post - this thread has gotten huge)
In further testing my GFX card also runs quieter, and Colder with BandiCam limiting to 60. It's insane - even tho the average frame rate has apparently remained the same, now that i have the external frame limit it is not only running better but also no longer sounds like a hair-dryer lives in my computer.
