My computer stutters and the audio distorts every few seconds. While in game, the frames seem to drop every few seconds and the stuttering continues. I just wanted to mention that I know the cpu is going to be bottlenecking the gpu, I hope to replace the cpu soon. I recently got the rtx 3090 and replaced the previous rx 5700xt.
The specs are as follows:

CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x
GPU: RTX 3090
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 4x8gb 4000 mhz
Motherboard: Gigabyte x570 aorus elite
PSU: ROG Thor 1200 watt


I Thought the issue might have been ram, but I enabled the xmp and nothing changed, the stuttering still continued. I wanted to mention how it does not feel too much like stuttering, but more like frame drops even when not in a game.

Thanks for any help!

Did you make sure the bios is fully up to date? You'll want to do that anyways before ugrading anyhigher into cpus anyways.

And you have all the latest mobo drivers?

Could be mobo audio finders conflicting with gpu audio drives
But that would not explain the stuttering (I might be wrong). I reinstalled gpu drivers and the stuttering continues. I am now thinking that it is either the mobo or the ram. I am going to swap the ram out right now. Thanks for the help btw.

I would try removing the mobo audio drivers first and restarti g the system then giving audio a shot.
Thanks for the suggestion. I ended up resetting windows and the problem's solved, no more stuttering or distortion. I really wonder what caused it. It might be the audio drivers like you said.
