People told me that if I had stuttering in Forza Horizon 3, to really think twice about buying Forza 7, because users were experiencing the same thing. I’ve heard this from, who I thought at the time, were very reputable people, and I’m fairly certain none of them know what they’re talking about. I didn’t have any stuttering in Forza Horizon 3, and I’m getting a tsuami of stuttering in Forza 7. This isn’t a system requirement issue, as I’m getting over 120fps most of the time. I actually had to turn on 110% resolution scale just to keep the frame rate below my displays 144hz Gsync range. A lot of people keep telling me to turn on “v sync”. Again, these are clearly people who don’t know what they’re talking about, as I’m not referring to tearing. I’m talking about stuttering. My display is changing it’s refresh rate in real time , so it’s always synced. I don’t need V sync. And I’m surely not going to introduce a bunch of latency for vertical sync? If there is a game requirement to run with V-sync , then the developers have to be forthcoming about this, and not have an option to disable. Though, I don’t think this is the case. I think this is yet again more noise from the PC community, most of which is based on ignorance. The stuttering I’m experiencing in this game is game breaking. All of the cut scenes jerk around so bad I can’t even watch them. I have no idea what’s happening because they’re stuttering and lagging out. When I get into the game and start playing, it’s smooth half of the time, and not half of the time. When it’s not smooth, it’s sort of jerking around in microstutters , usually around corners and turns while I’m in third person. When I’m in Cockpit view, I don’t get any stuttering at all. Which is what led me to turning up resolution scale, because I think cockpit view is slightly more demanding. I think it’s a matter of me getting too many frames (stressing out CPU). The more frames your GPU is delivering per second, the harder your CPU is working. And microstuttering is usually more related to high CPU use, not too little FPS. My only concern is, I’m still experiencing microstuttering within my displays Gsync range, and I don’t get microstuttering in other games at 120fps.
Are there any Gsync users playing Forza 7, and if so, how is your game playing? Any stuttering?
