Hello, today I updated my system with a 7900 XTX (Sapphire Radeon RX 7900 XTX GAMING) and since then I've had a problem with jerky YouTube videos. The video freezes for 1-3 seconds, but the sound continues. I can also move the mouse during this without it freezing.
The mouse movements on the desktop also feel a bit notchy.
My system consists of an MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus, Ryzen 7 5800x and 32GB G.Skill RAM. The GPU is connected with a riser cable (Cable Mod CM-VPB-HDK-R Kit). The GPU is connected to the monitor (Samsung Odyssey G7A 4k 144hz) with a DP cable. I updated from an MSI 2070 Super Gaming X Trio.
I installed the latest driver 22.12.1 via AMD software. Running Windows 10 pro 22H2 Build 19045.2364. Bios is on the latest version from MSI 7C37vAI. CSM mode is disabled.
Try turning off "Hardware Acceleration" in your browser and see if that helps. If it does, then chances are it's a AMD driver issue, they had problems with the 6000 series cards also, I just leave "Hardware Acceleration" off and YT works fine. I'm using Vivaldi browser (Chromium based) with a 5400x / 6900xt. What mine does is while watching a YT video in HD, I'll get a screen hiccup and it drops out of HD, I have to click the YT gear and choose my higher resolution again, this doesn't happen when I have "Hardware acceleration" off.
Two months on and this is still an issue with the latest 23.2.1 driver, I have to turn HW acceleration off in Brave, Edge and Chrome for the mousemovement not to be choppy, general stuttering as soon as I do anything in the Browser. With 23.1.1 the issue was not present, it came with 23.1.2.
