To anyone experiencing the DX12 stutter I recommend you to try the following:

1.In Windows Settings search and open Exploit Protection
2.Click On the Program Settings Tab
3.Click On The + Add Programs To Customise
4.Click On Choose Exact File Path
5.Find Control_DX12.exe Click Open
6.Programs Settings For Game Opened ,Scroll Down To Control Flow Guard
7.Put Check Mark In Override System Settings And Turn From On To Off And Apply

After following those instructions my stutter is 100% gone and the game runs flawless, just thought I would share in case it helps others.

Here's the source where I found it: Possible Solution For DX12 Stutter
Holy crap man, this did it for my hitching on DX12!

Fixed it very near completely. I still get the odd stutter here or there but it's presumably unrelated.


no luck for me unfortunately. but thanks for trying
Did you do a full reboot afterward? Mine didn't take effect until I did that.

Built a new PC with a 2070 Super and got this free - had tried a couple of things on Gamepass and they worked amazingly (Forza Horizon etc) then tried this with raytracing on. Looked beautiful at first, then started to get graphics corruption after about ten minutes, nothing dramatic at first just some weird effects, then it crashed and when I reloaded it was worse and crashed again. Then it started crashing almost immediately. Buggy piece of crap I thought so I loaded Forza again - crashed instantly. Was a new GFX card, so hoping it was just defective, but seems like Control was too much for it lol. Returned it back where I bought it (Best Buy) but having to wait until September 6 for a new one. Super annoying.

just did. It appears to be fixed. Not sure which action fixed it yet, but before I rebooted I:
  • Set NCP to Low Latency Mode
  • Did your suggestion
  • Task Manager closed Firefox and Chrome (so they wouldn't auto-load back up on restart)

One of the 3 fixed my issue. Or, I believe so. I'll keep playing but 20 minutes and no hitches is a new record. Everything maxed, 60-75 fps, 3440x1440, ray tracing on high.

So I tried that and I am getting some weird results...

I thought I had the stuttering that everybody is mentionning in here but I guess they were just good old regular fps drops because once I did that trick, the FPS were suddenly pretty much stable at 60fps (which is fucking great and better than I had before!) but then I started to get a LOT of stuttering during combat... Only during combat actually... When just moving around I'm getting the best performances I've gotten so far with the game but then it becomes unplayable once I start combat.

I'm having a problem with this game where the more I play, the more my VRAM fills up. Eventually I get to 9-10GB VRAM usage, and textures no longer load in. It's like... VRAM isn't being freed up. Some sort of memory leak. Only way to fix it is to restart the game, but it seems to happen after just 30 minutes to an hour of playing....

The RTX visuals in the maintenance part of the building are some of the most amazing graphics I've ever seen. Lots of steam pipes, water on the ground showing reflections, dark areas with single light sources scattered around the environment- just looks phenomenal.

This is really the first game that has made me see ray tracing as the future of videogame graphics. Shit looks unreal at times and we are in its infancy.

The ray tracing in this game made me a believer. Sacrificing other settings to keep that shit on and still meet 60 FPS.

Jee whiz it brings in so much atmosphere, especially in a game like this.

I'm fine sacrificing resolution to play with RTX settings enabled on my 1080 Ti but the game just won't stop crashing the second I enable any of the RTX features. I noticed that I can prevent the game from crashing by dropping down to 720p and locking my framerate to 30. This at least allows me to walk around but the moment I use a weapon, the game crashes again. Increasing framerate limit to 60 prevents me from walking around.

Hopefully future updates will make raytracing on non-RTX GPUs stable

Still trying to figure out why I can't get over 40 fps on my PC. My i7-9750H/RTX 2070 Max-Q laptop should not be outperforming my 9900K/2080 Ti SLI PC.

Disabling SLI and underclocking didn't work. Re-verifying the game didn't. Reinstalling drivers after using DDU didn't. Both of my cards have AIO coolers, so I might have to go ahead and try swapping them or something. While probably not meaning anything, I ran 3DMark and got the highest benchmark score I've ever gotten. I've ran out of options besides reinstalling windows, which I really don't want to do.

Hmmm, have you tried physically removing one of the cards?
I know my brother used to run a 980ti SLI setup and few cards, even when SLI was disabled would run worse with both cards installed, pulling one card solved the issue. PITA but worth a shot at least

Reminds me of a bizarre issue I experienced when I had a couple of 670s. I was seeing graphical corruption in some games, and after trying everything I could think of, I resorted to Google and eventually found someone who had the same problem. He managed to fix it by switching the SLI bridge around.

Sure enough, that did the trick. Same SLI bridge, different orientation.

Will this run well on my i7 4790 GTX 970 G1?
Anybody with GTX 970? How is performance in 1080p (not in maximum settings, like on gamegpu site)?
Tried it for a bit earlier on my older machine downstairs i have hooked to my TV specs are gtx 970 , i5 4690k, 16 gb, Win 10.
I got 30-40 fps on high, 40-50 on medium and around 80 fps on low this was on 1080p (also rendering resolution) running trough the first area with action in the game.
For those curious about how it runs on GTX 970. Also, a bit of workaround to get it running at locked 60fps. Basically using base PS4 resolution technique with graphics quality being equivalent or better than consoles for stable 60fps.

3700X and 970, won't it be bottlenecked? Asking because I'm planning to get the same CPU and still using my 970.

With this combination, you will be GPU bottlenecked, and ideally, that's how a gaming PC should be. It shouldn't be CPU bottlenecked.
This opens up paths to upgrade to more powerful GPUs later down the line, and you can rest assured that your CPU will be able to handle bigger GPUs when next-gen games are out. 3700X is a fantastic CPU.

This worked for me, though I also turned off every exploit protection in the menu. I also set low latency mode to On in the control panel. After I rebooted my PC the game was stutter free.

A reminder, disable SSAO while using RT, it's on by default (check DF video and Nvidia guide for a detailed explanation). Just saying as I completely missed it.

Will I be able to max this game out on 1080p (- any MSAA) with RTX on at 60 fps?

My specs:
Asus Prime Z390-A
Intel i7 9700k @5ghz (AIO from Corsair, so never get over 70 degrees when stress testing)
Gigabyte RTX 2080
32 GB RAM (2 x 16 GB) DDR4 3200

No, you still get dips here and there to the mid 50s in combat encounters.

Bring down one or two settings then you're good.

Dictator you should try this! it completely eliminated the DX12 stutter in battles for me. It's such a better experience with RT now! almost entirely smooth frame rate now.

Would this run well on a GTX 980 Ti and an aging i5 4460 processor? I'm just looking for 1080p60, and I'm willing to sacrifice graphical quality to get it. I just can't wait a year to play this game and the console versions are ass.

Yeah you should be able to get 60fps. I don't think CPU is a bottleneck in this game, it seems very heavily to rely on single-core performance so I don't think the lesser core count will matter.

Well, I bit. The screengrabs were just too good. Couldn't really afford it this month but guess I can live on beans on toast for the next couple of weeks, lol!

Should look good. 2080ti, i5 [email protected], 32GB3200RAM and an SSD. Let's see that eye candy! And only 23GB! Wish more games were this size.

Cheers, that's what I was hoping for. I hate supporting EGS but I like supporting Remedy so it kinda balances out???

From what I understand, if you really don't want any of your money going to Epic, you can buy the game on the Humble Store, use EGS to download it, and then delete Epic's launcher from your PC, since the game is totally DRM-free.

Just want to throw this info out there if anyone is wondering (I apologise if this was mentioned before):
On Vega 56 (with Ryzen 2700, 16GB DDR4) I can more or less maintain 60 FPS at 1440p by setting SSR, Global Reflections and Volumetric Lighting to Medium and turning MSAA off. Everything else can be maxed out. This way the game rarely dropped to the fifties until reaching the first Control Point, it was mostly sticking to sixty.
