Stuttering Sound in Adobe Premiere [AORUS Pro, Intel UHD 630, Core i7 9700k]

The Problem with Sound on my Desktop Computer

When I purchased my new desktop PC that consisted of Z390 AORUS PRO motherboard, Core i7 9700k CPU and 32 GB HyperX Fury I faced the problem with sound when I began editing videos in Adobe Premiere on Windows 10 Pro.

I placed a video clip on the timeline, cut some scenes, applied some basic transition effects and clicked “Play” to preview the edited part. And I immediately heard that the sound was trembling, cracking and stuttering.

I was frustrated to face such an issue on my brand new PC with high-quality and expensive components. But in my case the solution turned out to be simple – “option 2” of this tutorial helped me fix the problem.

How to Fix Stuttering Sound Problem in Adobe Premiere

First of all I thought that the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 card was not enough to edit 4K videos but luckily I was wrong.

Here is how you can hopefully solve the problem with stuttering sound playback in Adobe Premiere on your desktop PC with Z390 AORUS Pro and similar models.

Option 1 – Drivers

Make sure that you have the latest version of drivers installed. I mean that you need to install all drivers for your devices but not only for the sound card. I recommend to try upgrading the audio drivers before you turn to modifying the BIOS settings.

All you need to do is visit Gigabyte website, open the Support section, search for drivers for your motherboard model, download drivers for Windows 10 x64 and install them.

Option 2 – Change Integrated Graphics Settings in UEFI BIOS

This method helped me fix stuttering sound in Adobe Premiere on my machine.

  • Go to UEFI BIOS. Reboot your PC and keep hitting DEL.
  • Select the Chipset section
  • Change DVMT Pre-Allocated to 1024M
  • Change DVMT Total gfx mem to MAX
  • Go to Save and Exit and select exit saving changes.

Option 3 – Upgrade your UEFI BIOS firmware

In my past I faced the same troubles with integrated audio cards on some motherboards and in half of all cases the problem was solved by installing the latest BIOS firmware. Personally I always check for BIOS upgrades because it often fixes some bugs and improves performance.
