    Overwatch is having stutters / game freezes


    GTX 1070 (gpu)
    i7 6700k (cpu)
    16gb ram


    I play on low settings b/c i play it competitively and want all the FPS and advantage I need.

    144hz and my FPS is usually 250 - 300

    but sometimes I get microstutters or hard stutters and it happens out of no where. I never had this issue until recently.

    I already did a full virus scan, I personally think it has to do with this:

    i use ShadowPlay and have instant replay on for the past 60 seconds. I always had this on the whole time and never had any issues in my game.

    I personally haven't noticed any other game that has these stutters. I reinstalled the game as well, and it's also on my SSD.

    Are you maxing out on memory while playing the game? What are the system temperatures at while playing?

    nope, the memory is fine from what I can see and my temps are always below 60C

    hmm well I noticed this issue about a month ago and decided to reinstall Overwatch fully which I believed it actually fixed the issue and now I notice it again about 2 days ago. I have the latest driver, I tried about 7 differnt versions of the driver. I even tried to use DDU to reinstall the drivers but that never fixed it. I had issues on all 7 versions

    try doing a clean boot and see if that makes any difference.. to me it sounds like something is running in the background that might be causing the issue.. disable shadowplay for the time being to see if that makes any difference. ( i read this has been the cause for some stuttering in games..) just a test to see if this problem still exists.

    i ended a nvidia container 32bit process and it disabled shadowplay and fixed my issue. why is shadowplay causing me game lag

    it's a known issue and it's up to nvidia to fix it.. you should just turn off shadowplay in geforce experience and consider using a different program to record your footage. i personally use obs and it works great.
