As you can see it is an issue multiple people are reporting.
Got a new RX 6600XT graphics card as was relying on my AGPU Ryzen 5 3400g integrated graphics card before.
However the game experiences stutters/freezes as the game goes on with larger number of players (starts smoothly). Even though the RX 6600XT is significantly better than the Ryzen 5 3400g I’m having this issue.
Doesn’t seem like its a general issue with the GPU - it can AoE4 on medium-high settings very smoothly so you would think at the very least it wouldn’t stutter with AoE2. Have tried updating drivers, monitoring gpu/cpu temps levels and ram and disabling freesync.
When I’ve googled it, it seems lots of other players have had similar issues with AMD 6000 XT series in AoE2: DE.
Does anyone know if devs have even acknowledged this as an issue they are working on/aware of?
Further links from research I did:
How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!
- 100% of the time / matches I play IF its a 3v3+ that goes on to mid-game or later. Also if I run the ranked benchmark test.
List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!
Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:
- Run ranked benchmark
- Experience clear stutter/micro-freezes
- Get a score of over 1150 regardless
- Alternatively just play any game that is 3v3 and let it go to mid-game
