"Rendering Device Lost" is costing me SR

I keep experiencing “Rendering device lost” error which forces me to shut the game down and restart. It has happened multiple times during comp games. I had one experience where it happened, but I came back to win the match with my team and I still lost 50 SR. How does that make any sense???

Any solutions to this problem? I can assure you its not because of overheating.

If you take more than 2 minutes to return to a Competitive match, you will be penalized regardless of the outcome of that match. Learn more here:
