Vega 64 & Mirror's Edge Catalyst

Discussion created by dstmnd89x on Jun 12, 2020

Picked up MEC on Origin recently since it was steeply discounted, which is a Frostbite engine game.  I've noticed that like every few seconds on my machine, regardless of visual settings, the game stutters and I've noted that my GPU usage randomly drops 20-30% or so.  The game saves to an NVMe SSD so it's not an access problem; I've tried several different combinations of video settings to see if I could at least reduce it.  I've also changed the priority of the game to high just in case that had anything to do with it. Enabling or disabling certain GPU features doesn't affect the stutter.

 

Here's my setup:

  • Vega 64 reference with EK block
  • 20.4.2 WHQL drivers
  • Seasonic Focus PLUS 850W
  • Windows 10 Pro 64-bit build 2004
  • Ryzen 3700X & 32GB FlareX memory

 

Any input is appreciated, as the game isn't real enjoyable and fluid when graphics performance isn't near seamless. Pretty much ruins it entirely actually.
