Same exact situation here. Ultra settings except clouds very high and dof/motion blur turned off. 4k120hz w/ RTX 3080 50-70fps, about 70-80 w/ 1440p. 30-60 minutes of amazing butter smooth gameplay and then massive stutters. Raids seem to make it worse / cause it quicker but not all the time. Seems like fire might also be an issue.
Tried all the tricks like disabling full screen optimizations, changing priority through task manager, low-med-high-very high-ultra settings, 1440p vs 4k, 30fps lock (dont do this) but nothing works. just best to leave it near max settings and keep saving/restarting for now
@tyranusvader I've been using HDMI with my LG C9. No multi monitor.
I've literally tried everything but nothing makes any difference. Right around 40-60 minutes of gameplay it just starts stuttering and there is absolutely no fix other than a quick save/restart. It's just so weird how not everyone gets this bug. I thought it was temp related since it sounds so similar to overheating but all my temps are way below 70 and restarting the game should not be enough to overcome overheating issues anyway. Hard to compare since Watch dogs Legion was also a crappy experience (rtx on) but older games like watch dogs 1 and 2 were running perfectly fine just a few weeks ago so I don't think there is anything wrong with my PC.
I was having a really great time raiding/clearing all the points, especially on highest difficulty as it can build up some great battles but I'm just sick of all the stuttering/saving/restarting. Just been focusing on the main story and want to finish it now... really disappointing.
