Game feels laggy and jittery, but no FPS is fine?

My game recently started becoming jittery at random moments for a bit, not sure what brought this about. I have Mastercomfig installed. I assumed it was FPS drops, but I checked, and my FPS seems fine.

I took this screenshot during one of those jittery periods: https://imgur.com/a/xcxC4Um

I don't know the meaning behind anything in that picture, except for FPS and ping. I and was wondering if anyone who understands this type of stuff can see if anything stands out?

Thanks. :)

Edit: had a stroke while making the title there. I meant to write "but FPS is fine?" Sorry 'bout that

micro stutters can come from wide and unstable variances in fps or network issues, I'd recommend doing the mastercomfig benchmark thing and see how low your fps minimums and how high your fps maximums are, and if there's a huge difference between those 2 numbers that could be your issue

I am also running mastercomfig. Something you could try is changing your resolution to a lower one, than change back to your native one. I have this problem sometimes too, usually after checking the logs of a match. Restarting my game fixes the issue, but changing the resolution and changing it back fixes it for me, and is faster than restarting your game

Getting the same issue, constant 200 fps / 40 ping on a server but the game *feels* like its stuttering all the time, just not smooth. Did any of these tips work for you? debating on just downloading a new config or something right now

Is your frame pacing synchronized? Frame limit and vsync solves the frame pacing problem.
