Finally solved poor performance in SU8 by updating motherboard bios

I’m an AMD user, 5800x CPU and 6900 xt GPU with a reverb G2 but I think this might apply to other systems as well.

SU7 ran really smooth for me but SU8 brought back the stutters. Even after lowering my settings the stutters persisted. I always keep everything updated with latest drivers, firmware, windows updates etc especially since I have rather new hardware but several months ago I stopped updating my motherboard bios. Mainly because I had dialed in performance improvements for my CPU and didn’t want to mess with that. Well after trying many things to fix the stutters I figured the bios was my last hope. Immediately after I updated my x570 motherboard bios and all my stutters are gone now. I’ve been flying this way for 2 days now and the stutters have not returned so I’m confident this was my fix. I’m back to SU7 smooth stutter-free flying.

So if you’re experiencing stutters and can’t find a solution, I suggest you check if there’s a bios update and give that a try. Hopefully it helps you like it helped me.

Happy flying :slight_smile:

What MB do you have (manufacturer/model) ?


Thanks. Good to know if it is MB/manufacturer specific, but it’s a good reminder to keep MB bios up to date regardless.

My motherboard is a Gigabyte b550M Gaming.
My BIOS version was F13. I updated to F15 but the problem still exists.
At the moment the only solution is to turn developer mode on and off at the start of each flight.

Sad to hear you still have the stutters but at least you have a work-around. Good luck.
