Horrible FPS drops during transition, only recently started happening.



  • Hey there, I just recently started getting terrible FPS drops while playing Dota 2 specifically, regardless if I'm in safe mode or not it's happening.

    I am running AMD's newest Crimson drivers 17.3.1 and never had an issue up until about a week ago. I'm not sure if it's flux's update or AMD's update that broke the transitioning but it's a deal breaker at this point because it will drop the game down from 150 fps to 9 fps during a crucial point.



  • @AB_24 just wanted to add that it now does it regardless of what I'm doing, it's just more noticeable when I have a game open. Even in safe mode. it never did this before.



  • @AB_24 Until you can provide further information about system changes, I'd attribute this to a driver update. I love driver updates, but once I got about 20 years old, I've been VERY weary of their effects, and research every single one of them when I plan to update, for every graphical program that I use. Yes, it's gotten that bad.

    I lost a CPU because of a bad driver--user error, but still because I couldn't believe it could be the driver, until I put back in the old but working CPU and had the same issue.

    @Tungsten_smooth the thing is that the driver update improved performance for games so I'd rather keep it updated. Anyway it's win 7 ultimate (newest updates, staying on it til I'm forced to go to win 10), i7 7700k, 32gb of ram.

    No system changes, just video driver updates. I guess I'll have to disable it in the mean time.



  • @AB_24 Well try going back a point release on the drivers (same month) and go bank one more if that doesn't solve it.

    I understand it brings better performance but I'm trying to rule it out as the cause.
