Constant freezes/lag spikes



This problem started a little before the Ashe update, and i’m not having any similar issues with other multiplayer online games i play. Basically, i can’t go through one game (or even a training session) without getting lag and fps drops for periods of about 5 seconds at a time, sometimes longer. As you can probably imagine this makes it difficult and disrupting to play the game and i’ve tried checking my PC for updates and the scan and repair feature on the Blizz App, but nothing has changed. I’ve also currently got all my graphics settings at the lowest possible level in order to minimize lag.

Please help me fix this?


If you try the steps in this guide and nothing helps: GUIDE: Maximizing System Performance for Overwatch (PC)

Then post a dxdiag for people to look at and help spot the issue.
