Stuttering graphics abyssal space


(shaun 27) #1

Just wondered if anyone is getting stuttering in graphics in abyssal space. This is becoming such a common problem now i just cant be bothered to even run the lvl 5 sites anymore.

This issue occurs in low settings with (everything off basically) and high settings. Its mainly around high count npc spawns so high count cruisers and frigates. I have completely reformatted pc fresh drivers new eve client still getting it.

pc specs:
windows 7
amd fx 8150 8 core 3.9ghz
asus amd radeon r9 290 4gb version lastest radeon driver.
ram 16gb

Other games i have been playing mainly planetside 2 have been running really smooth even with 100s people on grid.

Included video of it stuttering/rubber banding.

Are you using the adrenaline software from AMD? That might be the culprit.

Read the “known issues” for the AMD driver release, they may have a solution there.

Isn’t this more like connection related tho? I get it too sometimes but only for like a single room on first site I do and not always quite rarely in fact.

It is adrenaline software latest version 18.12… was doing it on the 3 previous versions as well.

It doesn’t do it all the time but when i say common it happens at least a few times every 3 sites. That video is not the worse i have experienced either it gets ALOT worse then that when it happens.

I remember reading somewhere that the adrenaline software has some issues but for the life of me, I don’t know what the solution was.

Try the new drivers:

heh i just upgraded this morning to 19.1.1 the 19.1.2 is optional haven’t tried that yet. But as to the 19.1.1 no better currently uploading a video first site i did this morning and it was no where near better and their was a graphic glitch during it at 8.33.

Maybe my graphic card is no longer good for eve. I have been holding off for years because prices of cards etc and the fact it wasn’t worth upgrading for a few mhz increase. Not a nvidia or windows 10 fan tbh.

When I opened the AMD website, I saw the announcement of the latest OMG-BBQ-WFT-GPU coming this February.

Maybe wait a few days and get this one for your 8-core CPU system if it doesn’t fix the issue.

Hopefully it does because at present at least lvl 5 sites for me is unplayable. I dont get this issue in normal k space at least from running about and doing some low level anoms / some solo pvp in wh space.

I hope so too. Us AMD users should stick together as much as we can.

My RX 480 with 8GB doesn’t have those issues and I only have 4 CPU cores. Could be the new abyssal space needs vulkan support or more processing power.

oh god dont say that your have all the team blue coming in here showing off their 1000 fps videos :stuck_out_tongue:


(elitatwo) #11

With the danger of sounding slightly arrogant, my mind does only operate in 1000 frames per second.

You would not believe the time delays I am suffering when I am waiting for something to happen that has been obvious for 50 years.


(shaun 27) #12

looks like i might be getting same issue as Framerate lag spikes thread will try some things in their see if it improves my situation as i can quite reliably reproduce this problem if i run enough sites.


(elitatwo) #13

I am sorry to hear that. Did the Adrenaline version 1.9.1.2 help at all?


(shaun 27) #14

no still on 19.1.1. ran 3 sites this morning with loglite running and bunch tools displaying fps etc, had no problems this morning, no stuttering at least. I had the odd pause / jerk like once or twice during a whole site but no where near as bad as some videos i posted.

I will catch it at some point no doubt and save the logs etc its rather intermittent but when it does happen it happens alot.


(shaun 27) #15

Ok after like 8 9 sites today managed to get 1 producing the stuttering and capture it log wise and video wise.

Stuttering starts in second site at 12:36 and third site 12:39 ingame time!. The loglite didn’t capture nothing i might add.

Graphic settings i used which is virtually potato mode.

Disable the resource cache and use the optimizer in the “performance” setting.


(shaun 27) #17

Still get the problem. I did test my spare pc today and that also gets the same problem with the odd pauses jerking. Its been rareish lately like every 3 or 4 sites and i haven’t had the really bad stuttering for a few days.

spare pc specs:

amd radeon hd 7800 series 1024mb
ram 8gb
amd fx 4300 quad

Not sure if this meets min specs as it says 2gb is that ram or graphics card ? that was with 19.1.1 software windows 7.

I also eliminated my router causing problem as it will block dodgy packets. I used standard virgin media one. so its 3 things really eve, network, radeon software.


(elitatwo) #18

I think it means video memory. When abyssal deadpsace was introduced they said it requires 4GB of video memory for the large textures to render.


(shaun 27) #19

Well tbh it doesn’t matter now i was able to reproduce the problem on another pc so at least i have comfort in knowing its not my graphic card on the way out tbh. Will update shortly after upload etc but this site i did on the other pc after about 10 sites was rather bad actually.


(shaun 27) #20

That was after 10 sites with a fresh eve client fully downloaded on performance settings with resource cache unticked and interival immediate.

pc specs:
amd radeon hd 7800 series 1024mb
ram 8gb
amd fx 4300 quad cpu
19.1.1 radeon software version
ssd corsair neutron 240gb

I can deal with the odd pauses and jerks every 3 sites but that is the issue which is annoying. Not to mention i nearly died twice trying to reproduce it and not paying attention.
