GTX 460 - weird stuttering
Hi,

I have a X3 445, 4gb, BQ 430w PSU (30A/300W on 12V) and a MSI 460GTX Cyclone with 260.89.

In some games i noticed a small stutter in very short intervals (1-3s).

Then i ran 3dmark vantage and the 3rd feature test (POM) shows my problem perfectly. So i monitored the GPU/RAM Usage and Clocks with MSI Afterburner (100ms) und they are at 100% during the featuretest ie. no drops no nothing. Temperature is at 70°C and the rest of my system is cool as well. DPC Latency is <700 all the time and usually around 200-300ms when in 3D mode.

Here is a gif to show what i mean:

That small jump occurs every 1-2s.

Went berserk in the nvidia driver settings but no combination made any kind of change to the problem. Going back to 258.96 didn't help either.

Help :(

Solved it myself.

I'm using a software called "F.Lux" that adjusts the color temperature depending on the time of the day. Its awesome for longer sessions infront of the PC, but it seems to interfer with the 3D performance for whatever reason :(

THANK YOU!!!

My computer has been suffering from this same problem for a while. I was just trying to run 3DMark11 and finally couldn't stand it any more. After searching for an hour I found your simple 2 post thread and now the problem is gone. Thank you so much for posting this.
