Hi, in the 4.* kernel series I have serious issues playing games (or anything CPU intensive). The game in question (Borderlands 2, DotA 2, etc) seems to stall the CPU and threads actually fall off while the game for example tops off at 100% on the core it’s active on. This means that running twitch together with Borderlands 2 will effectively make the system unusable. The pattern is that these stalls happen once every few seconds.
I’m running Arch Linux, I’ve tried the stock kernel and the zen kernel to no avail. My hardware: Intel i7, 32GB RAM, GTX 680. I’m hoping anyone can help.
