GPU Artifacting: How to solve and why it happens

Spread the love

Gaming graphics cards usually don’t cause problems, so you don’t need to worry if yours does. Video games sometimes experience this, but it can be really annoying when it happens all the time! Usually GPU artifacts appear when a bug or a glitch has been activated on-screen, causing an image to appear (for example, through pixel repetition) as if something has been permanently damaged or deleted within the GPU’s memory space. However, this does not always affect the image too much.GPU Artifacting

How about if we examine these terms more closely? When we get artifacts inside games themselves, they may not seem so concerning.

It’s not as simple as it seems. You probably don’t want to look like a bunch of sorry blokes who only read Tom’s Hardware forums to get their artifacts problem solved, so let me list a few more cases where GPU artifacting may occur:

For example 

While rendering 3D content in Game Mode or running dozens of demanding windows in Catalyst Control Centre, these actions may cause stuttering due to the high tessellation demands placed on lower-end GPUs that are not able to handle the workloads without causing frame rate drops – When using older graphics cards from Nvidia series 300.

GPU artifacts caused by non-heat issues

Several other potential causes may be present if your GPU has been overclocked to a point it cannot handle it. Reset both graphics cards if that doesn’t fix the problem. If both don’t solve the problem, temperatures and clock speeds might be to blame. Depending on how old the graphics cards are or if they were previously OC’d or overclocked, it’s also possible that older graphics cards may struggle to run even at a stock speed, so underclocking might help.

Insufficient power supply is a mistake that many gamers make. This may result in problems such as excessive noise and heat when operating, with fans operating at higher speeds due to insufficient power! 

How do we solve this? PSU that matches up nicely with what you are putting out – this gives you stability, but you also have extra room if other components (like hard drives) need more breathing room.

You should test your games at lower settings

You can reduce radiation absorption by downgrading your computer’s graphics quality. Ideally, you want to go from ultra-high right down to medium or lower, with no visible artifacts! When this option is lowered even further, there may still be problems. In this case, try a third-party app such as Nvidia GeForce Experience, which has flexible and customizable settings.

By using an app rather than manual adjustments, most artifacting problems should be solved. A specific game might have a different set of requirements based on its intended use, whether it’s TPP or Atomic, old generation consoles, etc.

Be sure to invest in cooling

A desktop airflow system is useful if you’re on a computer. You also have to get colder air in as well as pushing hot air out! Are these gaming PCs equipped with enough fans, and what type of fan would work best with them? (How many or how many?) See my other article for details.

It may be beneficial to clean existing fans, especially those that blow over graphics cards. You might even want to wipe down any dust that is present under CPUs/GPUs or anywhere that has high heat sources, since this could create problems later on when overclocking becomes more common…

What to do if all else fails

Continuing this relationship makes no sense. The spark has faded, and it’s no longer as exciting as it once was; however, if none of these work, then there is still hope.

Then maybe you could clean up some dust bunnies in Photoshop if none of the other methods work?

Graphics Artifacts are NOT

Visual artifacts and glitches can sometimes be caused by the VRAM instead of your GPU. In all likelihood, these bugs occur while gaming, so it will be important to note when they occur so you can distinguish between them and other types of bugs like system crashes or application errors.

During gameplay, note down the parts that occur at irregular intervals. You can also compare this value with those who don’t face this problem as often but experience similar problems. Even after looking at how much memory has been allocated, you will be able to find whether there is still another factor affecting performance. Check out the video below for more information:
