Mad framerate drop

desacrate2013

I've had no issues with any game I've played on default (high) setting all play at 130+ frames consistently. I've been playing shadow warrior 2 for the last 2 days without seeing anything below 145+ frames even in those crazy battles with so much going on while on default (high) setting. I was just playing 20 minutes ago and just loading into the map I was sitting at 100+ and while in a small scene battle dropped all the way down to 35 fps. I have not changed any settings or have anything in the running in the background.

Please help I have no clue how to troubleshoot it or fix it as this is my first build. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Jmjypg

It could be thermal throttling, checking with a good hardware monitor like hwinfo will tell you that. Generally I assume this sort of thing is software; Winders decided to run an update test, or index the disk drive, or something else equally intrusive. It can be hard to pin that sort of thing down.

I'm gonna sound super noobish right now. But what is thermal throttling? And I will look into hwinfo. My temps are 66-69f for GPU and 56-60f CPU under heavy loads

Thermal throttling is when the CPU or GPU limits its usage so it can cool off. Your temps are fine. That's not the problem.

Thermal throttling just means that the temps get high enough that the CPU or GPU clocks go way down, producing less heat. If you're around 60C (not F, that would be below room temperature!) loaded than it's not throttling.

I had this problem. Update your NVIDIA driver to the latest one. If you don't have it, get Geforce experience. It will help you optimize games and update your driver. It got me a lot better FPS afterwards.

Just went on and checked geforce experience and it says I'm up to date with the newest driver.

Is it constantly at 35 fps? If not, then you have nothing to worry about. You might have some background process going on, so press control + shift + esc to open task manager and see what's taking up your CPU, GPU, and Drive.

It's not a consistent 35 frame rates per second. It does volley up and down for a bit and return to 130+ and does so throughout playing the game. That would make sense too.

It is probably some process running in the background. Stop processes from apps that you've installed that don't affect your system.

The latest nvidia driver has been reported to cause stutter i would suggest rolling back the driver to before the fps dropped.

Really? I've had no problems with it at all.

The driver has problem with some configurations of hardware.

Hmmm... I'm running an old GTX 960 with no problems, but his config might have some problems.
