Weird bug with Aida Extreme 6.70.6000 (stuttering in games)

Hi :)

 

I have Aida64 Extreme and until now I was on the 6.60.5900 (under Windows 11).

I have a sensor panel that displays FPS, CPU / GPU temperature etc...

In the 6.70.6000, the Temperature->CPU was reporting 28C for my I9 10900KF, which is incorrect, but it was ok, I used a Cpu Core 1 for example to track the "real" temperature.

I was really satisfied with Aida :)

 

Today I updated to the 6.70.6000 and the Temperature->Cpu is fixed, it displays correctly the CPU temperature. Though I saw something strange with games. I have a "micro stutter" happening very regularly, as if fps went missing every now and then, like stuttering. So for example in Warzone or Far Cry it is really annoying as you do "micro jumps".

I tried to update the Nvidia drivers, scan Windows hard drives, Gaming mode on / off, deactivating the anti-virus, putting the game on another drive, changing the monitor frequency etc...

 

Then it hit me. The only thing that really changed was Aida. So I closed Aida and boum! No micro stuttering.

To check, I changed the update frequency in Aida from 1000 ms to 5000 ms. What happened is I had micro stutters only every 5 seconds.

 

To double check, I installed back the 6.60.5900 and I don't have micro stuttering.

 

If you want to test something feel free to ask me.

I realized I could create a support ticket and just did it.

What motherboard do you have?  If it's an Asus motherboard, then you may want to try to disable the following 2 options in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Stability, and restart AIDA64 to apply the changes.

Embedded Controller (EC) support
Embedded Controller (EC) bank switching

Without EC (Embedded Controller) register access AIDA64 will lose a few sensor readings, but it should help to get rid of the stuttering.

My apologies, I did not see the notification...

I am not sure about the motherboard, it comes with the Alienware Aurora R11.

I will update Aida tonight, try your suggestion and let you know :)

@Fiery, I would like to apologize, I was pretty sick and was unable to do the tests or game for that matter.

I was able to run some tests Today and disabling those two settings did not change a thing ("Embedded Controller (EC) bank switching" was already disabled).

For information here were my initial settings, with your recommendation:

 Nonetheless it gave me hope and I spent some time to try and see if some other settings there would change anything and was able to pinpoint the setting combination that is causing issue in my case.

When both settings "Low-Level sensor operations" and "Dell SMI sensor support" are checked, I see the stuttering:

So what I did now is set the same settings I posted initially, but disable "Dell SMI sensor support" and I have no stuttering and I have pretty much all the sensors :)

 

In this case I lost the motherboard and chipset sensors temperature, but I can live without it.

Btw. I realized I was not following this topic, I thought it was automatic. I follow now this topic.

 

If you want me to test something please fell free to ping me :)

 

Edit:

Even with the previous version I could see some stuttering very recently (I updated a lot of stuff Today when I came back) when I launched COD (which I did not have when I initially posted), might be related to a new Dell update now...

I was looking Netflix on Chrome 102 (Stargate SG 1) and I was seeing stuttering during pan sequences. Disabling Aida seemed to remove them (?).
