Both maybe? I finally was able to catch this with Afterburner. When playing Gears Of War 4. My framerate will completely tank like a slide show for a few seconds and then climb right back up like nothing happened. I am attaching a picture as well. Notice the Power, GPU usage and VID dips. To the lowest starting with power 36% gpu usage 24% and VID to 12. When this happens core clock is remaining pretty much perfect still at 1860MHz. I have no overclocks going on or any thing. I have no idea what could be the problem.

    Is the game installed on your HDD? If yes, try placing the game on your SSD to see if it helps make the issue go away.

    If that's not the case, you might want to check out disabling M$ Xbox DVR function that they turn on by default now, here's the link to Sajin's guide (step 6) - https://forums.evga.com/Basic-troubleshooting-steps-Windows-clean-boot-clean-driver-install-debug-mode-etc-m2504606.aspx

    Game is on ssd and I disabled the Xbox DVR a long time ago. I just made a thread about hdd back to ssd for this game. It solved my stutters. But I still get this completely random frame rate tank once in a while.

    Does the same issue occur when running game on HDD?

    Man you guys are fast lol. I edited my last post but yes it did happen on the hdd as well. Could it just be the game itself and how it is? I don't have this problem with other games.

    Hello,
     
    does this only happen in GOW4? Have you tested other games with similar issues?

    Have a moment? Please rate our service

    I'd say yes since you don't have the problem on other games.

    If you get random drops in other games try GPU-Z, it has a Throttle (PrefCap) Reason graph that gets its info from the NV display driver.

    Clean install of the Nvidia drivers never hurts, seen that fix similar issues.

    Ah I will look into this. I am in contact atm with someone over at TC talking about this problem with the game. The red flag to them was the power drop from the card and why is that happening. I hope its not a gpu or psu issue.
