Hello Guys. I want to ask you about something. I have been recently experiencing a very annoying problem. during gaming every now an then I get this weird annoying chip in FPS. It's not an FPS drop, just a weird chip. Not sure if it is related to G-sync. But I started noticing it after I connected the usb cable for the pump, installed Evga powerlink, Gigabyte HB SLI bridge, WD SSD dashboard and software for NZXT kraken. I believe I had iCUE instaled before. I am quite sure I was not seeing this before. I really don't want to go through reinstalling windows again, but I have a feeling it is something I installed recently but not sure what. Even when I close all the apps I still get this weird chip.
I don't think it is hardware related. Maybe you guys can share similar experiences ? My last resort is to reinstall windows and not install anything except drivers and games and test again.
Update: I did some benchmarks, superposition 8k optimized, 99% utilization on both cards, it was butter smooth during the entire benchmark. Ran Metro Exodus 3 runs, and it was also butter smooth. Not sure if it is just my eyes but I am sure I started noticing this recently. Anyway, I will keep messing around with it. I might reinstall Windows and see if that makes a difference.
Update: I tried Forza Horizon 4 . WOW this game is so beautiful. Not a single stutter with non stop racing. So I guess It just me being OCD or something. I'll keep testing different games.
Update: OK ... I did alot of testing and messing around. The problem is definitely with SLI somehow. When SLI is disabled, No chipping , micro stuttering, When SLI enabled, I notice microstuttering. I saw this with Gigabyte bridge and asus bridge, both are HB. I put back the ribbon bridge, and no stuttering !!! **** is that ? I will try to look for a better bridge. but not sure how is this possible ?!
Update: OK .. scratch the ribbon thing. All Bridges have exactly the same behavior . standard or HB. Only when disabling SLI it goes away. I'll just live with it for now until I get the new cards.
