Fps drops from 60 to 40 then back
#1
Specs

Processor: 2.9GHz Intel Core i3-4130T (dual-core, 3MB cache)
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M (custom, 2GB GDDR5) (Equal to Nvidia GTX 750 TI)
Memory: 8GB DDR3 (1600Mhz)
my pc has been Overclocked
im on the latest build of PCSX2
everything 'to my knowledge' has been updated on my pc.

I have been setting up each game to the best settings i can get it to, and i've been fairly successful except on this issue. it seems no.  matter what settings i use i get this constant frame drop during game play were its 60 fps most the time and then suddenly drops to 40 fps 'along with a pause in emulation' before going back to 60 again. and while i think it may be just the settings for the game its happening to every game i have ran on PCSX2 'Ready 2 Rumble Boxing 2, Def Jam Fight for New York, Def Jam Vendetta and Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkiachi 3". it is more noticable on Directx11 and 9, using OpenGL is too slow. im trying to figure out if its maybe my pc or the settings i have but i just dont understand the issue, has anyone come across this?

Have you run a real time resource monitor (like MSI afterburner) while playing to see what is going on when this happens? My guess is that the 4130T is having to compile a new chunk of code and that is causing these "pauses in emulation". Try using something that allows you to see real time how much of your CPU and GPU you are using and run a game that does this my guess is that either you are pegged near full on one core of your CPU all the time (50%+ usage all the time) or it spikes up right when one of these pauses occurs.

i actually have footage of some PCSX2 emulator running on my pc.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKFFHIhkDOA

now with Def jam its less noticeable, but at the 5:15 - 5:20 you see the sudden frame drop i mentioned. with other games like dragonball Z BT3 its much more noticeable 'which i plan to upload a video of too'

but the CPU usage is definitely above 50% like you mentioned.

Shadowplay to record? or are you feeding the output into a second system to record?

yeah im using shadowplay to record, but these drops in frame rate happen with or without recording. i usually setup the game configs to the best of my ability with little to no issues before recording, but no matter what settings i use 'native resolution even' that dip in FPS is still there

resolution won't really help since the bottleneck seems to be the CPU not the GPU. if you run PCSX2 windowed you will see some numbers at the top of the screen what are the EE and GS numbers when this happens? (if you have a game that is easy to get this to happen I would use that to test)
