Hi All,

We've all seen these posts before, but I'm hoping I can provide enough detail to cut through some of the noise and see if we can get some definitive progress on this issue

Specs:
Gigabyte X470 Gaming 5 Motherboard with latest BIOS
Ryzen 2700x at base clock with latest chipset
Gigabyte G1 Gaming 1080 at base clock with latest Nvidia drivers
16gb DDR4 2666 Mhz Ram running @ 3000Mhz via XMP setting in MOBO
Samsung Evo 850 with Windows 10 and Games
Samsung Evo 840 holding a few other games and files
Corsair CX850M PSU
Acer GN246HLB 144hz Monitor

Issue experienced:
When running games I struggle to reach an FPS that is reflective of my systems capabilities. I have found that I'm struggling to get above 70/80 FPS despite my CPU, GPU and RAM utilisation all being below 60% at all times. I've also checked individual core/thread loads and none have hit above 80%. Temperatures on GPU reach around 62 C, CPU around 58 C. Essentially, it doesn't matter what settings I apply in game, I get the same FPS from low to ultra. Stuttering can be an issue in some games as well, but may be due to low FPS / Sudden FPS drops on 144hz monitor?

What have I tried:
Fresh install of windows, completed all updates
fresh install of GPU drivers
Fresh install of AMD chip set
Fresh BIOS flash
Disabled HPET
Disabled / Enabled SMT and used Process Lasso to ensure games are running on 4 physical cores only.
Set Windows to High Performance Power Plan
Disabled windows update delivery optimization
Disabled hibernate
Checked Page file
Checked Ram is installed in A2/B2 slots
Various tweaks of settings in Nvidia control panel and in games


Any suggestions welcome!

What games are you playing and have you looked up typical fps for these games compared to your system or only the GPU?
