MSI Afterburner stutter in VR


Recommended Posts

This may be useful to someone. Apparently MSI Afterburner polling for monitoring (specifically power monitoring) causes periodic frame drops in Oculus Rift:

I use MSI Afterburner regularly to OC the GPU, and as a matter of fact sometimes notice periodic stutters. Will try disabling monitoring and see what happens.

 

It seems other monitoring apps (like Asus GPU Tweak) cause similar problems:

How did it go with the new drivers? 

 

I would like to use 381.65. I have been ok with this one. But windows 10 keeps installing 388.13 which is a total crap.

 

I'm thinking if I install the very latest one (if it's a good driver) then I can please Mr. Windows finally.

 

It's a total joke BTW. Yesterday I rolled back to the old driver then windows installed 388.13 while I was playing BOS getting me disconnected.

try adding these registry entries to disable the forced updates. They work on Windows Pro for me, Windows just alerts me but doesn't install anything. Not sure if they work for Home version though (if that's what you have)...

 

launch cmd.exe with "run as Administrator", then just paste them in to the command prompt

 

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v NoAutoUpdate /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v AUOptions /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v ScheduledInstallDay /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU" /v ScheduledInstallTime /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f
