Okay so, since I bought my new graphics card, I can run Overwatch and other games way better than before, but I keep having one of the problems I had, and I’m pretty sure it has become even worse, before i ran OW at 30-40 fps with garbage quality so, as I said, I bought a GeForce GTX 1050 and succesfully updated the drivers.
But I keep having FPS drops (lagspikes) that are really annoying and that randomly occur during matches. I normally drop from 60-70 to 40 and even 10, that’s why I’ve tried a lot of methods to try finding the solution.
I’ve already checked this post from 3 months ago where one of the devs kindly responds to a user with a similar problem.
Check it out by yourself if you need help, it’s called
-Random FPS drops January 2018
I have tried EVERYTHING in that post but i keep lagging and I dont know why.
Quick note, my internet NEVER lags and I never have internet/wifi lagspikes I’m perfectly fine with that, it’s just fps problems.
My Graphics card should perfectly handle highish quality but, trying to solve this lagspike problem, I’ve lowered every in-game setting (I don’t mind lowering the setting I actually prefer it like that) and my FPS still randomly drop.
My current OW settings are:
Everything LOW/Off if possible
75% resolution (tried out 50% garbage but still lag)
1280x800 (1440x900 which is my max still lags)
GeForce GTX 1050
Driver Version - 391.35 (always try keeping if fully updated)
Intel® Core™ i5-3330S CPU @ 2.70 GHz
5.94 GB RAM
1440x900 60Hz Monitor
I’ve had this problem for a really long time and it’s always kept annoying me…
I would REALLY appreciate any kind of support from other users with the same problem or that can solve my problem or a dev that can help me out.
Thank you for reading this and for supporting this thread.
Have a nice day.
