RTX3080 problems

Just wanted to let you know, there is something fishy with the unity engine when it comes to an RTX 3080 (game version 18.2)
The game is not really one of the demanding ones, still the card gets very hot, the fans start rotating like crazy and after a while there is heavy graphic stuttering.
The heat goes up already on the loading screen, when no 3D graphic is shown at all.

The performance on my old GTX1070 was a lot better, even if not perfect - the fans would still run quite fast, but it was definitly better. Even Doom Eternal won't heat up my graphics card as much as this game does.

After a little digging I learned that apparently this is a bug in the Unity engine that has already been fixed, but not all developers have upgraded to the fixed build. Can you look into this and see if you are using a up-to-date build of your engine version?
Currently the game for me is unplayable.

Re: RTX3080 problems

I think it was one of these, there have been several topics about the high GPU and CPU usage of the unity engine. The faster the card and CPU, the worse it gets, so it seems.
But I must admit, I could not find the post about the already fixed bug again. Either it's in one of the other threads or it was removed, I don't know.

While looking for that post I did find another information about a new windows feature "Hardware Accelerated GPU Scheduling" and it was suggested to deactivate that. I'll try that and post the results asap.

Re: RTX3080 problems

OK, I tried that suggesstion now.
Actually I had this windows setting already turned off, so I tried to turn it on instead and it actually did some good.

Just for info: I'm running a Ryzen 3080x system with 32 GiBs of RAM, the RTX 3080 runs at 1080p @120 Hz refresh rate (I'm planning to switch to 2160p @144Hz soon). A game like this should run with ease (and many others do that).

Anyway ... The GPU usage with this setting is now about 50%, which is still a LOT, but it's progress still.
The stuttering comes and goes, and when it's there, it's by far not as bad as it used to be.

There is only slight stuttering now. About 3 or 4 times per second the game stands still for a moment. Between these pauses it seems ro run smooth however. So it's not low frame rate, but something that blocks the whole thing. Here's a short clip showing it.

It's far from being perfect or as good as it was with an older graphic card, but it's playable.
