Micro stuttering in games Windows 10
There are a few Windows 10-specific tricks you can follow to fix micro jams and improve overall performance and FPS.
1. Disable Game DVR
Windows 10 has several gaming features from Xbox that gamers thought players would love. However, the opposite is true.
Features cause a lot of micro jamming and can significantly reduce FPS. But what is a game recorder?
In short, Game DVR lets you record your best gaming moments but captures everything, so the performance impact is huge.
You can disable the game recorder through Windows settings and Registry Editor. However, I recommend that you do both to be absolutely sure it is turned off.
Here’s how to disable Game DVR on Windows:
- Go to Start and type in Settings.
- Go to the games.
- Under Game Bar, move the slider to Off under Record game clips, screenshots, and broadcast using Game Bar.
Game DVR should now be turned off. This is optional, but here’s how to disable it using Registry Editor:
- Go to Start and type regedit.
- Click HKEY_CURRENT_USER> System> GameConfigStore.
- On the right, double-click GameDVR Enabled, change the value data to 0 and click OK.
- Close the folders and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> Software> Microsoft> PolicyManager> default> ApplicationManagement> AllowGameDVR.
- On the right, double-click the value and change the value data to 0 and click OK.
- Restart your computer.
If you’ve already disabled the Game Bar, read on as I have more tips and tricks.
2. Disable Dynamic Ticks and HPET
Dynamic ticks are useful for laptop users as they can save some battery life, but can ruin performance on desktops.
There is also a problem with the High Precision Event Timer, or HPET for short. Many users report that HPET increases latency, which in turn causes micro jams.
Here’s how to disable dynamic ticks and HPET via the command line:
- Go to Start, type cmd, right-click Command Prompt and hit Run as administrator.
- Type bcdedit / set disabledynamictick yes and press Enter. You will get the message “The operation was successful.”
