Hi, i recently switched from a RX 480 to a 6600XT and a Corsair RM750 thinking that all of my problems should be gone, but I can't get rid of these stutters, I tried a lot of things without result, they last about 100-200ms and happens every exact minute.

PC specs:

- CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 AF (No overclock)

- GPU: RX 6600XT 8GB (No overclock) (22.2.3 Driver Version)

- RAM: 16 GB at 3200Mhz HyperX Fury RGB (XMP 1)

- MOTHERBOARD: B450M Steel Legend Asrock (2.5 BIOS version)

- PSU: CORSAIR RM750 Gold Plus

- STORAGE: Samsung 980 M.2 NVME 500 GB


The game runs totally fine always at 144 FPS capped by RivaTuner but with these stutters in combat I always mess up all.

In creative mode I left the game running and the huge frame drops are happening every 61 seconds exactly

But in normal mode I have the huge drops every 61 seconds and another ones

CPU and GPU temps never go beyond 60°C

Things that I tried and didn't worked:

- Fresh install of Windows, 10 or 11 without any program installed only fortnite

- Fullscreen, Borderless and Windowed

- All combinations of graphics settings

- Directx11, 12 and performance mode

- Battery Save, Balanced and Max Performance mode in Energy Settings of Windows

- Ram at 2400Mhz stock speed, XMP 1 at 3200Mhz and XMP 2 at 3000Mhz

- Put Fortnite application in Max Performance in Windows Graphics Settings

- Increase in +20 the power limit of the GPU in MSI afterburner

- Enable the option "Enable unified GPU usage monitoring" in MSI afterburner

- Disable or Enable Freesync from AMD software

- Disable or Enable Freesync from the monitor

- Put Fortnite in High Priority of Task Manager

I don't know what to do more, pls give me advices and I will try it and update the list.

Srry for my english.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

How old is the PSU in your build? Where did you source the installer for your OS? BIOS version for your motherboard? Which version of AMD's driver are you working with?

  • The PSU is totally new, I bought it the last week with the 6600XT
  • I took the windows ISO from the official page of microsoft
  • The BIOS version is 2.5 since Asrock doesn't recommend to install newer BIOS versions if using Pinnacle Ridge CPU
  • AMD drivers version are 22.2.3 released a few days ago

Stuttering is usually caused by a temporary lack of a critical resource.
Usually CPU.

What is happening every minute?
It could be something like email doing a send/receive every minute.
It could be your graphics driver checking for updates.
or???
Look in the task manager/performance tab.
Sort by cpu usage.

I think it can't be caused for others aplications because it only happens in fortnite, tried many other games and no one have these stutters every minute.
I check the task manager when this happens but nothing strange at all, no apps going further than 5% utilization in any resource when the stutter happens.
