CSGO Update For 27/03/2020

Stutter Fix For Nvidia Users

Valve has just released an update for Counter Strike Global Offensive, which should help players affected with freezing or experiencing stuttering while playing CSGO. The issues was related to rendering previously unseen content on the map, for example player models, textures and other props.

As confirmed by Valve developer, McJohn, they have changed how certain low level shaders work for all users, including those with AMD and integrated CPU graphics systems. It was common knowledge that the most impacted player base was certainly Nvidia users, but the patch should help everyone.

If you have an AMD or use Intel Integrated graphics (or you play the game on Mac or Linux) and have a chance to try this build–that would be really helpful! You can just opt into the beta build, then jump on your favorite DM server. As long as nothing looks wrong and performance is normal, then things are good! Although NVIDIA users were demonstrably the worst impacted by the problem, we changed how certain low level shaders work for all users.


So far users on Reddit are reporting minor improvements, although some still experience stutter when new players join the servers. Go ahead and test this patch in-game by opting into beta depot of Counter Strike.
