So my previous rig ran a 1070 and a I7 7700...Both Battlefield titles ran flawlessly at 1440p easily grabbing over 60 FPS. Now I have upgraded to a Ryzen 7 3800x (Liquid cooled), an RTX 2080 Super (Liquid cooled), 16 GB RAM @ 3600Mhz, the ASUS ROG Crosshair Hero VIII Motherboard, a 27in 1440p 144Hz Monitor, and I have my game installed on a 7200 RPM Seagate HDD. Quite a substantial upgrade right? Silly me assumed that this would equate to better performance in Battlefield (my mainstay game to play). I was very wrong. While I DO see FPS numbers (measured via MSI afterburner) that are well into the 150s at 1440p ULTRA SETTINGS (wow!) the FPS I get in these games is EXTREMELY inconsistent, jumping between anything as high as 160 to as low as 40 within the span of a second. I would describe overall performance as decent if not for these random bouts of extremely intrusive stuttering. No amount driver re-installations, GPU control panel setting changes, BIOS updates, Windows updates, game repairs, system scans, registry changes, graphics setting tweaks, or ANYTHING else has seemed to do me much good. It is the most bizarre thing ever and I feel like it may be a Ryzen compatibility thing perhaps? A cpu issue? There is no throttling going on during the problems and all of my thermals are great. This is a real head scratcher for me since my previous rig, being old, bogged down with background processes, and running on substantially worse hardware, played with more consistency than my new one. I really want to enjoy my new rig to its fullest potential and this is seriously hindering my ability to do so. I know Ryzen is not known for gaming performance...but cmon man...it should be leagues ahead of a quad core 7700 in terms of stability and raw power output. And that which is mentioned above does not even begin to cover the crashing issue. Yep that's right. In battlefield and battlefield games only I can not finish a game without the game freezing my entire computer and hitting me with a DX error claiming that I have removed my GPU. Sometimes the error is so persistent I have to reboot my PC. Being that this is purely happening in BF...could this just be software compatibility issues? If it is then I am appalled at DICE's horrible support for the latest and greatest tech...but I do not think this to be the case. Any help would be appreciated for I am at my wits end. Thank you.
