      Issue:

      I've recently noticed a huge problem with the games that I am playing. I mainly play Rocket League and Counterstrike Global Offensive, however I've noticed the problem in more than them games.

       

      My problem is that when I cap my fps to 60, I do not have micro-stutters in my game. However, this brings screen tearing due to my 60hz monitors. If I reduce or increase my fps by 5, I lose the screen tearing but gain micro-stuttering in my games. V-Sync at 60fps removes the screen tearing but produces micro-stuttering. I used to be able to play on unlimited fps and not have screen tearing or micro-stutters but I think one of the latest updates has messed up my graphics cards functionality.

       

      I have tried moving games to different hard drives, reinstalled my AMD software fully and even reset game presets and the problem still lingers.

       

      For Rocket League, I tried to install the drivers that came with my graphics card and used them to play the game. I had no stuttering at all, even at unlimited fps. However, as soon as I updated my drivers to the most up to date version, problems began to happen again. 60fps using the old drivers still produced screen tearing however.

       

      If anyone has a fix or knows what's going on, please let me know!
