New patch, new frame drops


Ever since the new patch came through the game is unplayable. Fps is dropping like crazy


Same… getting large stutters and frame skipping.


The game is just causing my pc to freeze completely after this update


and the funny thing is, other games, heavier games, run just fine. The problem is just OW


These standard tips can help resolve most Overwatch FPS drops:

Also here are advanced tips I have written in Overwatch’s Tech Support forum that maximize your FPS performance in the game.


But how is this a problem with the driver if the other games are all ok? Witcher 3 and others are running so good. Plus, all began with the new patch. Sometimes the game is dropping to 5 or 2 fps


How certain drivers or specific pieces of hardware affect each game will always vary. These steps are good “catchall” solutions that are likely to fix your issues with Overwatch.


I was just about to start a new thread about this. Maybe it´s worth mentioning that my VRAM usage increased from about 80% on average to 95-100% most of the time since the event update. The day before release I helped a fellow laptop user who has an even weaker one than me tweak his settings to have constant 60FPS but while it´s still working for him I suffer from both frameskip and FPS constantly between 40-50 ever since Retribution came out.


Same 10 fps drops all the way from 144fps every 10 seconds does not screm normal to me
