So this issue in Premiere Pro 2023 started a while back, and it seems to affect only one of my systems. When I press play for either video or audio, the first few seconds stutters, but after a second or so it smooths out. It affects both audio and video files.
This is only affecting my Windows laptop, my MacBook Pro is just fine. Project file and assets are on a Crucial X6 SSD and I am using a high quality USB-C cable, at least that's what Crystal Disk Mark tells me based on the speeds.
System Dell Inspiron 14 7425 Ryzen 5 5625U @ 2.30GHz 16GB RAM Windows 11
Up until just recently this system could edit my videos just fine, but something happened and now it's barely usable for editing. Problem is, this is my daily use machine since I now prefer the Windows OS vs Mac OS. I have a desktop Windows PC (Ryzen 5800x), but the power consumption is just too much for my daily use. And, like I said, up until recently this system was editing videos just fine.
I'm wondering if there's a driver issue/incompatibility perhaps between Premiere and the more recent Adrenaline driverset?
I've cleared cache/render files and even re-installed Premiere, nothing has helped. Also, this is a brand new SSD. My project/assets were originally on a Sandisk SSD, but I made the assumption that the drive was going bad so I bought this new one, obviosly it didn't help. lol
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
