Unplayable stuttering only on Tarkov. (Explained in detail)

PC Specs :

Intel i5 10400 CPU

16 gb RAM

Geforce GTX 970

 

I've been playing tarkov a while now and it seems this is the only game it happens on and has only started as of recently and seems to be getting progressively worse imo.

I get around 100+ FPS when playing.

What happens is when in a raid randomly it will start to slowly stutter and then get progressively worse the longer I play the game without restarting, it will just freeze / stutter and I have noticed when it starts to stutter and I get into combat or even get shot at, the stuttering will rapidly get worse during that gun fire, making the lag and stuttering even worse to where I am sometimes froze with 1 fps not being able to move which has happened a lot so far, sometimes looking at the floor / sky while this happens will help with increasing FPS while freezing. This isn't the only thing that happens, once I restart the game ALL of my desktop processes such as my browser become extremely slow taking ages to refresh a single page or to even unpause a youtube video, nothing will register for about 3-5 seconds.

The weird thing is when I restart Tarkov and get back on, it won't freeze / stutter for a while and will play as normal but my desktop processes will all still be very slow and even if reset, only thing I can do to make everything fast again is to have a restart on the PC.

At first, I thought this was a PC issue which is still could very well be but I only recently talked to other people that have this same issue so I cannot be the only one.

I have stress tested my GPU, made sure my SSD was healthy with R/W inputs, ran tests while it was stuttering to see if anything was diminishing and also looked at Task manager to see if there was any noticeable changes.

Oddly enough, nothing was wrong with the PC it showed on all tests.

So here I am, here to ask you fellow EFT players if anyone has any helpful input or has had this exact issue happen to them. Any help on how to fix this issue would be helpful as it's making the game unplayable for me and I will soon have to stop playing if it continues without any fix or recognition on how this issue is happening.

Appreciate any helpful responses.

I SOLVED IT 

The fix for this problem was that windows was paging virtual ram to an old hdd harddrive. to make sure that this is the problem all you have to do is bring up task manager, go to perfomance tab and then look at the hardrive usage. if a harddrive that you are not using anything from has any disk write % then this is your problem. all you have to do is switch the harddrive used for virtual memory. 
 

to do this you just have to go to Controlpannel> System and security> system> advanced systemsettings, then click on the advanced tab, then clock settings on the performance bracket, then advanced tab again, click change and then switch the harddrive to your ssd or fastest harddrive.
if you still have this issue then you might wanna get an ssd

I am having the exact same issue. The only difference for me is that the lag seems to change with the map. Reserve is completely unplayable, I’ll get less than a frame/sec and I’ll be disconnected. 
On interchange there isn’t much lag. Everywhere else it’s between the two. 
 

i am almost certain this is due to BSGs update they did on Thursday, June 17th, 2021 because before this I’ve been running on max graphics settings and getting over 60 frames. 
 

At first I thought there was an issue with my new 3070, but after swapping it out for my old EVGA GTX 980 and nothing changed, I decided it wasn’t my GPU at all. 
To add, every other game runs fine except Tarkov.

I have lost about 2 kits to this problem now, it only started happening a few days ago but I can't even play on an even field with this issue. If this doesn't get fixed soon I may lose my mind.

Also have the same problem here, and i'm sure it was also after the date mentioned, 17th June. Have tried everything I possibly can to resolve it with no fix. It's pretty un playable, even getting killed multiple times by scavs becuase of freezing when engaging them, close to quitting.

This has only just happened to me over the last few weeks.  The stuttering and lag is getting almost impossible to play.

But I don't see any replies from the devs or anyone else about this which is a disappointment.

Same problems especially on reserve. 
16gb ram,  intel I7-8700 cpu NVIDIA GTX 1650 

tried a couple solutions mentioned above…pretty sure it’s just because the games not optimized and still in beta??? 
the only thing that seems to temporarily fix is clearing cache….
