I installed my FX CPU and motherboard, rest of computer is the same

and now I am getting a bit of stuttering in video games


I heard AMD and some games have a problem with core parking?


is there an easy way to disable this?

I found this video but it looks unreliable


Do I need to install the old hot fixes for bulldozer? I am using piledriver though.

or are these already sent out in windows update?

Here's a program that I've actually tested that can unpark/repark cores http://bitsum.com/ab...ore_parking.php


It's worth a shot to see if that's what's causing your issues.  As for the hotfix stuff I have NO clue as the newest AMD CPU I personally own is a Phenom II X6 1035T

I beleive this is what you want. Its a hot fix from microsoft. It disables core parking and changes the cpu scheduler. I have a fx 8320 and have the hotfix's patched :teehee:

I'm on Intel / nVidia and running Windows 7.


Disabling core parking really helped reduce the stuttering I was having in BF4.  Strangely, it's the only game that really exhibits the problem for me, but it was pretty severe. 


Even though we are on different platforms, I really think it's worth trying to see if it helps.
