I don't see what the issue is. Compare benchmarks.

@LukeGraphic - To familiarize yourself with relative performance metrics, you might try this benchmark - https://www.passmark.com/products/pt.htm - Performance Test 9.0 benches CPU, GPU2D, GPU3D, RAM, SSDs, etc., and compares to all systems, or just to ones like yours, and gives you a percentile figure, (as in, your CPU beats 89% of all systems, or your GPU beats 60% of all tested 1070s) - whatever you want to compare. Evaluation version is free for 30 days, but still works fine afterwards (with a couple features disabled). This is the way to get a feel for what's normal and expected, and also to see if any tweaks or new hardware is improving your scores. Many people will tell you that benchmarks are irrelevant, and they mostly are in the big picture, but used as a tool and to learn more, they can be useful.

as you can see my CPU usage is 33% and my GPU is 99%
Well if you plan to run this benchmark 24/7....

It doesn't matter because that benchmark will run every GPU to 99~100% load, this is how GPU benchmarks work....

nice joke ... he's at 4.6 instead of 3.9, while i am at 4.4 and have a similar GPU yet i see no stuttering or bottlenecking.
nor i see anything wrong with that picture ... at last nothing "insane" :laugh:
i suspect the OP saw some i5 user update to a i7 and think he has a problem with his i5 (nonetheless that would not really be an upgrade unless 8XXX series )



Well if you plan to run this benchmark 24/7, buy a faster GPU....

Oh wait.. It doesn't matter because that benchmark will run every GPU to 99~100% load, this is how GPU benchmarks work....

/thread
yeah ... i'm thinking the same for me ... the 1070 is weak and definitively not a 1440p card ... thinking about a 1080Ti with a 3 month leasing :laugh: or a 1070Ti/1080 with a one time payment (half joke, i think i will wait the next gen before deciding :laugh: )

his stuttering could even be thermal throttling from the overclock, wouldnt be the first time VRM's have overheated on a motherboard in benchmarks

v-sync is so 1990s

use vrr (g-sync/freesync) for gaming. period.

no tearing. no lag, frames are prefectly synchronized with the refresh rate and that helps with a very smooth perception of the game.

I'm just going to give a new "conclusion" to the OP: you are looking for a problem. It is running as it should. Enjoy.

Seriously, it is a GPU bound benchmark. A maxed out usage for the GPU is what you want in games. If the CPU usage percentage was higher it could mean you are on a low resolution or that you are playing a CPU intensive game, such as a strategy game, or one that has an insane number of characters and routines on screen. So you are doing fine.

Not everone wants to buy a new monitor juat for that if they already have a decent one, and only recently has there been affordable ones with thay tech.

And it's not just that , G-sync still wont get rid of all stutter. If you have a 100ms+ spike in frame time , good luck ain't nothing going to get rid of that.

perfcap reason are perfectly normal and usually not an indication of any "limitation" people started to freak out recently due to "vREL" "Power" "whatever" but a perfcap is ultimately bound to happen and show even during normal function. (right now i am getting "idle" as one :p )

and that does not mean there is any throttling nonetheless, i saw my card working at full boost while showing "vREL" and "Util" perfcaps.

I don't get it then. I thought I figured it out. Because I have problems with my system. It looks like when I turn on v-sync it gives me 60 fps sometimes drops to 57,58. But I can clearly see when it happens. But then when I turn off v sync I get 250fps but sometimes it drops to 245fps and again you can clearly see the difference... I'm bamboozled here
....
If you don't really do research on what the numbers you are looking at actually mean and in what context they should be read, PLEASE, don't try to read the numbers. Gauge your gameplay and rig by the actual gameplay experience. If it stutters, you look for a solution. If it just dips from 60 to 58 from time to time, its normal and probably also won't register as 'a stutter' in game.

Been there done that. You can spend days looking at graphs and RTSS results and probably even lose out on some brain cells along the way. Don't bother. Play games.

Thanks guys really for everyone who posted and was trying to help. But I have fixed it and now it's not stuttering anymore... Completely deleted all the drivers reinstalled it on the GeForce experience programe... The dips are gone. Again I thank you all, just by posting that question i've learned a lot...And with that I'am closing the thread.

driver supremacy .... right? .... pfahahahahaha


as for @LukeGraphic good to hear that you fixed it and it wasn't the marvelous 6600K, drat i should've known that a driver reinstall (with DDU preferably) would fix something like that .... i focused too much on the picture that was perfectly fine and my own experience, instead of the fact that you had stuttering, while i had none and the only "difference" between our rig (aside the user .... ;) ) would be the driver version or "installation method" (with Nvidia: never install the latest before you read it's stable ... because they never are ... nonetheless not before 1 or 2 month have passed ... :laugh: i am still on 388.13)

So in conclusion I just have to deal with the performance and there is nothing I can do
If you list your specs it would help ... 350watt psu, 6gb ram?
Look like you have 6gb of ram - 8gb would be the minimal with that gpu i rate.
For a framerate from 250fps dropping 5fps I don't see an issue here

For running heaven Benchmark is it more just Gpu intensive and not like gaming performance

perfcap reason are perfectly normal and usually not an indication of any "limitation" people started to freak out recently due to "vREL" "Power" "whatever" but a perfcap is ultimately bound to happen and show even during normal function. (right now i am getting "idle" as one :p )

and that does not mean there is any throttling nonetheless, i saw my card working at full boost while showing "vREL" and "Util" perfcaps.
lol maybe because u never experienced the throttling but i've experienced the power and thermal(temps) throttling before

true we don't need to post anything here again, someone should close it

was kinda surprised myself but i guess if i learned anything from posting this thread is. if it works don't complain.. :)
Standard IT helpdesk lingo

And if that fails, reinstall :D

I'll tell you what your reinstall has done: it has probably reverted your NV control panel settings to defaults. If you want specifics on the use and best practices around these settings, its worth a topic and this forum is the place - or you can google some stuff yourself first and give us more specific questions.

@GreiverBlade PCDriverRace? :p

Load up a modded GTA V or any other CPU intensive game, it'll be the other way around.....
