Counter-Strike 2 – How to Fix GPU Shader Cache Stuttering (AMD GPU Fix Only)

I will hopefully help you fix your problem!

Info

I’ve tried everything to try to fix this problem and this is the only thing that fixed it for me hopefully this will fix it for you as well!

Step 1

Right click on your Windows Start Menu and click on “Search”

Step 2

Type “registry” in the Search Bar!

Click “Open”

Step 3

Copy “Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0000” with out the “” and pass it into the “Registry Search Bar” and press “Enter” on your keyboard after!

Step 4

Scroll down until you find “D3DVendorName” and “D3DVendorNameWow”

Step 5

Double click on “D3DVendorName” and open it up!

Some of you will have the exact same commands as mine:

  • amdxn64.dll
  • amdxn64.dll
  • amdxx64.dll
  • amdxx64.dll

Others will have a different version of the commands which is perfectly fine they should look like this:

  • amdxn64.dll
  • amdxn64.dll
  • atidxx64.dll
  • atidxx64.dll

Or

  • atiumd64.dll
  • atiumd64.dll
  • amdxx64.dll
  • amdxx64.dll

You will need to replace the old commands with the new commands!

New commands:

  • atiumd64.dll
  • atiumd64.dll
  • atidxx64.dll
  • atidxx64.dll

After you’re done adding the new commands click on “Okay”

Step 6

Double click on “D3DVendorNameWow” and open it up!

Some of you will have the exact same commands as mine:

  • amdxn32.dll
  • amdxn32.dll
  • amdxx32.dll
  • amdxx32.dll

Others will have a different version of the commands which is perfectly fine they should look like this:

  • amdxn32.dll
  • amdxn32.dll
  • atidxx32.dll
  • atidxx32.dll

Or

  • atiumdag.dll
  • atiumdag.dll
  • amdxx32.dll
  • amdxx32.dll

You will need to replace the old commands with the new commands!

New commands:

  • atiumdag.dll
  • atiumdag.dll
  • atidxx32.dll
  • atidxx32.dll

After you’re done adding the new commands click on “Okay”

Step 7

Now all you need to do is “Restart your PC” for the new commands can take effect! After start up the game and see how it plays if this fixed your stutter problem you’re welcome!

Warning!

For whatever reason if this somehow causes your computer to screw up somehow or the game is somehow worse all you need to do is go back and replace the new commands with the old commands and restart your PC!

  1. Step 6 is actually not needed, it’s for 32 bit applications (and cs2 is 64bit only). Also, it breaks 32 bit MPC and filters like EVR and madVR, so not changing it is actually the proper way of doing things until valve fixes shader compliation stutters

  2. there is NEVER a reason to change registry shit…. this makes no sense on why it would fix anything.

  3. Great guide, other “fixes” just reduce the stuttering. This removed it fully. I have a RX 6700 XT.

  4. Bro, thank you so much, you have no idea how long I have been suffering with this problem, to be precise, for more than a year and a half, thanks to you, I was finally able to play my favorite games normally. I will try to tell everyone about fixing this problem.

  5. If you receive an error message from Wallpaper engine or EA, select – “DX9 NAVI
    to regular DX11” (applications on Directx 9), for this you need to change the following register:

    64-Bit DLL / D3DVendorName Preset
    amdxn64.dll
    amdxn64.dll
    atidxx64.dll
    atidxx64.dll

    32-Bit DLL / D3DVendorNameWow Preset
    amdxn32.dll
    amdxn32.dll
    atidxx32.dll
    atidxx32.dll

    Errors will disappear, and games on DirectX 11 will still not freeze.

  6. Hi, do you need to change the driver to vega? Or is it necessary for RDNA 1 ? I chose vega, the friezes really disappeared, but the FPS decreased.

    • You don’t need to do anything besides the steps by step that author Iaid out for you if this is the cause of the stutters for you, if this isn’t your problem then it’s not going to fix your stutters! Pursley for me I have not seen any FPS decrease but I’m not saying that it won’t decrease your FPS I just know that it stops the stutters!
