I've got this problem (which I can see in this forum that a lot of others are also dealing with) with stuttering in COD Warzone.
These are my specs:
Ryzen 9 5900x
MSI x570 Tomahawk
XFX Speedster Merc 6900 XT 16GB Black V2
32GB 3600mhz CL 14 ram
2x1TB m.2 drives
850W Corsair power supply.
I'm playing on 1440p 240hz monitor.
When I got the card I wasn't experiencing as much stuttering as I am now. This only happens when I play the big map Caldera. It's especially noticeable in the beginnings of every match.
I usually get above 200-230 FPS in most areas of the map, but some I get 170 (Fields). The stuttering really kills the enjoyment of the game. I've read and heard from several other people that they are experiencing the same issues. Is this just an AMD problem or is it the games fault. I've played other games that doesn't have this issue.
I've tried both overclocking and underclocking. Underclocking helped a little bit, but didn't get rid of the issue.
I've done a fresh install of windows and tried older GPU drivers (using DDU)
I've tried disabling SAM to see if that was the cause, but no.
I've tried changing the values in the game files like the Renderworkercount and the Videomemoryscale. That does help boost my general FPS, but it doesn't get rid of the stuttering. Currently I am using: Renderworkercount = 6 and Videomemoryscale = 1.2. I've tried lowering the VMS, but that only made the stuttering worse in some cases.
I've tried increasing the render resolution in-game from 100 to 110, 120, 130, 140, 150 and so on to see if that helped. I've read that it has solved it for others, but in my case I only get a lower FPS and keep stuttering.
I can't even list all the things I've tried changing to get this solved...
Please AMD, get this sorted. This might be the last AMD card I'm ever going to buy. I've never spent this much time trying to solve such a stupid issue with any other GPU.
did someone try
I've noticed this on Assasins Creed and Horizon Zero Dawn. It fixes by just alt tabbing to windows. But it is jarring to see high fps yet acting like its doing 15fps.
So I've now downloaded the new driver and was really hoping that it would fix the problem in warzone, but unfortunately I was happy too early and still the same stuttering. I've really had enough!
There is another issue with full screen mode;
Basically, when I decide to go from the game to the desktop (With it running in the background), with the full screen mode, the game crashes after 15/20 seconds or a little more or less. The curious thing is that it doesn't just happen on Warzone, it also happens in Vanguard and, from what I remember, it also happened in the MW2 beta. Trying to change the mode from full screen to full screen bordless or any other, the problem doesn't occur and the game doesn't crash. I have tried to see with other games, as, it could be a hardware problem, however, with for example Overwatch 2, Fortnite, Apex Legends, League of Legends, it doesn't happen. I also tried to run stability tests, such as MemTest86 for RAM, completing the test with 0 errors for a total of 4 and a half hours. I have been trying to test the CPU with OCCT in various loads, very light, light and medium for some time, also trying Prime95 for 2.5 hours, 0 errors. Lastly, I tested the GPU with Superposition, Heaven and TimeSpy, with standard and normal scores with no crashes or artifacts.
And all of this tells you: it is not the driver nor the gfx card - but the game it self and the code behind. Amazing that so many people keep blaming AMD and their drivers. It is soo obvious that this is game engine that has problems !
I have never complained about AMD's drivers, if you notice well. I have always limited myself to reporting issues that I am experiencing with the game and precisely with this engine, which seems to be little tested with AMD hardware. Unfortunately, it is somewhat frustrating to see that things do not improve, because, in fact, these issues don't depend on the user who limits himself to buying only the hardware expecting zero problems and, if there were any problems, the expectation should be that they would be solved in no long time. For me, Caldera has been unplayable in terms of competitiveness and fun ever since it came out and, in addition, there are other issues with the engine that have not yet been resolved, such as the ones I listed above. Unfortunately, this franchise is sponsored with the amd competitor and it is natural that they mainly develop and test the game with this brand, as it also represents the vast majority of users who own it.
I did not try 0.55 I will test it but lowering value to 0.7 did fix freezing for me. But I didnt like idea to lower vram use after all I did pay for it.....
I played warzone yesterday and didnt notice stuttering on calder clash tdm mode.
Just thought I would chime in on this since I have been battling stuttering and game crashes since I have switched to a 6900XT from a RTX3080. Funnily enough, my issues are Windows 11 specific. On windows 10 the game runs smooth as silk. System specs are 13900K (previously on a 12900K) and Powercolor Red Devil 6900XT.
What has fixed my stuttering and crashing issues is setting VideoMemoryScale to 0.8 in the adv_options.ini file. RendererWorkerCount setting makes no noticeable difference.
Anyone having stuttering/crashing issues, can you please chime in on your OS version?
Any news? Someone tried the lastest optional driver?
Mw2 campain works fine without stutters
short freezing on all maps is gone and even stuttering on caldera is gone.
I have great time with warzone after 9 months since I got 6700xt and assembled my pc. It was big shock for me because I did give 1100 euros for 6700xt strix and expected to play warzone without problems.
No update from amd and developers. So I went in game to test it again before few days and it was big suprise its all great now at least for me.
Did warzone developers and amd done something to fix our problems? Maybe I done something, Im not sure.
cod mw2 beta did work good.
Warzone 2 will be big thing and I hope there will be no problems.
I still have one small problem that will occur in warzone and apex maybe more fps games. ground and objects vibrating left-right. I think high fps or limiting fps can cause it but I could be wrong.
have you tried a different RAM timing? That's what seemed to fix my COD crashing issues. It wasn't even my GPU.
