The RTX 3090 offers brilliant HDR graphics quality at up to 8K resolution apart from HDMI 2.1 that making it possible on a single cable.

  1. Just uninstall the NVIDIA HD Audio Drivers from your PC first.
  2. Next, uninstall the NVIDIA Broadcast software as well.
  3. Then restart your PC to apply changes and re-install the latest NVIDIA Graphics Driver for RTX 3090 on the PC. [It’ll automatically install the deleted HD Audio Driver]
  4. Now, you can re-install the NVIDIA Broadcast software (if you want).

So, some users got benefitted by following this guide and a simple reinstall of the main GPU Driver + NVIDIA Broadcast will instantly fix the stutters & lag spike problem.

However, if this didn’t help you out, then make sure to follow some other workarounds too.

  • Try running the DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) from Nvidia on the PC in the Safe Mode > Disconnect the internet access > Reinstall Nvidia Graphics Drivers (without the HD Audio Driver).
  • Additionally, you can boot the PC to BIOS (Basic Input Output System) > Set the PCI Settings to PCIe Gen-4 or higher from Auto.
  • Make sure to turn on the DLSS feature to get more optimized performance.
