since my last Windows 10 update, the playback in Premiere is rather choppy, subtle but nerve-racking. I tried to do some troubleshooting and found that my GPU (RTX 3070) does some strange peaking while playing back in Premiere (see picture). It goes from around 5% to 25% in the 3D window in a loop. The rythm fits the choppiness in playback.
Windows, Premiere and GPU drivers are up to date.
Audio Hardware problems were not the issue.
How would you go about this without reinstalling?
If reinstall, what first?
Error or problem
Freeze or hang
Hardware or GPU
Is it the Game Ready driver or the Studio driver that you're using? I'd suggest using the latest version of the Studio driver. Also, what are the rest of the system specifications (CPU, RAM, OS version) and details of the media (frame rate, frame size, format/codec)?
