Question Stuttering and Frametime spikes RX 5700 XT, how do I solve this? [VIDEO]


Novice Member
This spikes on the frametime graph are the reason why ALL my games feel stuttery.
I've been having this problem since I built my PC around April.
I tried lots of things but none of them worked, does someones have a solution for this?

Here is my video so you can see it:


  • Ryzen 3800X (Now Stock) with NZXT Kraken X73 AIO
  • RX 5700 XT Red Devil (Stock)
  • B450 MSI Gaming Pro Carbon AC
  • HyperX Fury 2x16GB 3600Mhz CL17
  • Thermaltake ToughPower Grand RGB 850W 80 Plus Gold
  • Samsung C27JG5x 1440p 144Hz
My OS and most of my games are in my 500GB 970 Evo Plus. Other games are in my 240GB Kingston SSD.
Some things I tried:
  • I reseted the Bios
  • I tried DDU on the drivers multiple times to make a clean install
  • Installing only drivers without Radeon software
  • I set my CPU back to stock
  • I ran a test for my RAM and no problems were found
  • All my drivers, Windows (V 1909) and BIOS are up to date
  • My Energy Plan is on AMD Ryzen High Performance
  • Game Mode is OFF
  • Gamebar is OFF
  • I'm not using any Bluetooth devices
  • I checked Task Manager and there's nothing strange
  • No other apps are running in the background
  • Freesync is OFF
  • Nahimic Service is OFF
  • All the startup apps are OFF
  • I tried setting my XMP profile to 1, 2 and manually to 3200MHz
  • I tried disabling XMP profile
  • I tried using 2 separate PCI-E cables
  • I tried switching DisplayPort cables
  • I set my PCI-E to 3.0 manually
  • UV/UC my GPU
  • UV my CPU
  • I tried 3 different RX 5700 XT on my PC
  • Disabling ULPS
None of them worked... What else can I do?

Is your monitor Freesync ? turn this on !! and set the radeon software to freesync too, ( both must be set to on ,- so their both in sync )

you could try enabling V-sync with in the game too! ,
or if you get a high FPS thats out of the 144mhz range set the limit too 140 with in the game ( not all game give you this option tho )

i don't have an AMD GPU , so just guessing here ..^
