HELP! :frowning:

I’m experiencing FPS drop.
Before, I was using GTX 770 and my fps was usually 190 (constantly)
Now, I upgraded to GTX 1070 and my FPS is only 150 and drops to 90, in-game.

My drivers are up to date. Here’s a benchmark

Everything looks good and I don’t know what to do
Please help it’s really destroying my experience.


Check for running background applications, and close as many as you can.
Check your GPU temperatures (using software like MSI Afterburner). If they are too high, it could be the cause for the FPS drops.
Explore Overwatch’s graphical settings and find what suits you best.
And also be sure to check your PC for Malware, because that can cause it too.


I am at all low and get consistent 144FPS pre-patch there is no way that it is anything related to my hardware


I never said there is something hardware related. I gave you a list of common factors that will lead to games having lower FPS. Please read my post again.
