What was the last thing(s) you changed before this issue started happening (hardware change, software change, settings change, drivers change, etc)?

Very best,

The prior post I made here was inaccurate, edited below.

I had a weird problem a couple days ago where it was like my video card was no longer accelerating anything after a reboot... Restored an OS partition backup I'd made a few days earlier which fixed it.

I was mistaken, it was a coincidence that restoring an OS partition seemed to work for my problem which was unique. The problem came back and restoring same OS partition backup didn't work this time. Turned out to be my !@#$ Android based TV had crapped itself again and needed a power cycle/reboot to stop stuttering.

Other things to check include that the video card fan is working (and not clogged with dust), what temperature the GPU is, and that you don't have the power plug to it loose or a failing PSU giving it bad power.

If you have an app that shows GPU working frequency, you can see if it's downclocking when you get stuttering, which is pointing towards a hardware rather than software problem.

If all else fails, I'd make a testbed clean OS install on a different drive, the 1TB HDD or something else, to see if that works without having to abandon your current OS installation if it doesn't work.
