  • Stuttering reported with Win10 Nvidia GeForce GTX 10xx cards

    I bumped into a report on Reddit that blames game stutters when Standby memory eats up all available memory.

    Connecting the dots, it appears as if the stuttering only appears on Win10 machines — and only those running the newer “Pascal” version of the Nvidia chip. You probably know Pascal better as the GeForce GTX 10xx chips.

    Poster Gigabytes1337 says:

    I’ve been battling with stuttering in games for months and really feel defeated over it. I just wanted to know if many others have been suffering with the same issue.

    Basically every game stutters and hitches and BF1 is one of the worst. It happens when the standby memory cache eats up all of the free memory. Clearing it seems to reduces the frequency and intensity of the stuttering.

    The stutter goes away when they switch to Win7. Apparently Nvidia isn’t interested in hearing about it.

    Anybody else out there see this?
