Hi everyone, here's the spec of my PC :

i72600k @ 4.5GHZ
Gigabytes z68x-ud4-b3
16GB 4X4GB DDR3 1600mhz 9-9-9-27-36
Crucial MX300 512GB
RTX 2070 aorus xtreme

Running on windows 10

I'm playing call of duty Infinite warfare but I have a similar problem on a lot of games, mostly newer games

Here's my benchmark result while playing call of duty

13-07-2019, 16:55:01 iw7_ship.exe benchmark completed, 24504 frames rendered in 232.422 s
Average framerate : 105.4 FPS
Minimum framerate : 0.8 FPS
Maximum framerate : 124.9 FPS
1% low framerate : 9.4 FPS
0.1% low framerate : 0.8 FPS

I'm playing in 4k but I have pretty much the same result in 1080p

My framerate is capped to 120FPS

So the gameplay is really really not smooth with those horrible 1% low and 0.1% low

Any idea what could be the issue?

When I look at the cpu usage, I'm around 50% on all threads with some peaks near 70%

Thank you

Are you using a M.2 on Z68 chipset? Is this your only drive? (and boot drive) I guess you re using a pcie adapter? Even so, i wonder how you made it to work as a boot drive?
I would try loading games in a normal SSD or HDD first. That should be a good effort to delineate your 0.1 lows which are horrible.
Your 1% low could be this, or a combination of things like adding a RAM bottleneck on the equation. I had bad lows when using 1333 ram with my i7 3770 @ 4.3 ghz. Things got a lot better using G.Skill 2400 mhz.
