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:
- Reset Overwatch’s Video Settings (Go to Options > Video, press backspace)
- Update your graphic card driver.
- Reset your graphic card driver settings.
- In drastic cases you may need to reinstall the driver and update to the most recent driver for your card. Remember to use Display Driver Uninstaller to completely clean out your old driver. Then download the most recent NVidia or AMD for your system.
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
