So recently I bought a ssd thinking my stuttering will finally end. So I plugged my T5 ssd, set it to high priority, tested the speed (it was as it should be on usb 3.0), moved Fortnite to my SSD and launched Fortnite. I was mad to see alot of stuttering and sometimes low fps. It is running on my Nvidia card, it is running on my SSD, but nothing has seemed to change from when I had no SSD. Someone please help me fix this...
If I have put it back on my HDD, then I have just wasted 200€ for better performance ( not just in Fortnite)
You can install the SSD as your main drive, just clone the original drive to it, or install Windows clean if the original drive has too much space. Running programs off a USB connection, even USB 3, is not a good idea. Is Fortnite the only game with the issue?
If it's the only game with the issue, it is very unlikely it's due to a disk issue since other games would have the same issue when loading. Did you try it on different settings? Make sure your internet connection is good? Maybe try it wired not on wireless.
the stutter seems to be on EVERY resolution, I hope this gave some information
Try doing the following.
- Watch Panjno's season 6 fps boost guide on YT. (or just download his fps pack in the description of that video https/www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLwQZBIG_RY
- Go to command prompt admin and paste this "powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61" (this will activate ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE power plan if you dont already have it.
- Try turning of windows 10 game mode. ( this got rid of stutter for me )
- Download smart game booster 4
- press windows + r (to open run) then type: "services.msc" look for windows search and right click, select properties and disable it.
Hope this helps. I also have a potato pc and run fortnite at about 50 fps. Ive been doing months of research but nothing works for me. Hope this helps you though.
OH and i just realised how late i am to see this. Well tell me if it helps anyway
