I'm new to these types of boards so if there's any sort of metrics you need me to get, just let me know and I'm happy to repost. I'm running on an I5-3570k CPU, and the GPU is a Radeon HD 7950 all on a Windows 8 platform
Something relatively new has started happening when I watch movies. It always starts out perfect, but after a few minutes, the video starts to get choppy and the audio stays fine but the video gets out of sync. The weird business is when I rewind 5 secs, it puts it back right into alignment and it looks normal again for a few minutes till it starts doing it again. Another thing to note is that I play video games, and while I don't have anything recording any metrics, I haven't noticed anything slowing down graphics wise.
I thought it was the video player (Zoom Player Free), but I tried upgrading it and even switching to VLC and WMP, but the problem remains. Then I tried updating the drivers, but that didn't work. Then I switched to the beta drivers. All the while, I've been constantly restarting.
Running the AMD System Monitor, I can tell you that when the lag spikes happen during video, the Memory Speed and usage go all the way to the 90-100%, but I don't know why. Also, the GPU temp stays an average 33C, which I assume is a fairly average temp.
