Hello, I've been experiencing frame rate drops in all of the games I play. For example, I could be achieving 110 FPS in BF3, but when I turn my character
a certain way(primarily toward more players) my frame rate will plummet to 40 FPS.
My temperatures are normal, I've updated my drivers, my voltages are normal, I have no malware or viruses. I have updated my BIOS. None of these have helped. Although I have seen some odd CPU and GPU usage percentages when playing games.
When playing BF3 primarily, my gpu's usage is 50%-70$ and my CPU's is 60% to 70%. Is this normal?
If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to know. Thank you.
1. Try defragmentation of hard drive
2. Clean your PC, physically, open it up and clean any dust, not likely but that might be the problem.
3. You may have too many processes at once, try shutting down unnecesary ones.
Hope this will help, if not, remember: Google has answers for everything.
Do you have CPUID CPU-Z installed? If not, get it, it may help you. I experienced this too on my FX-6300, it downclocks to 1.4Ghz when on load, due to having CPU throttle option enabled on my Motherboard's Bios. I also suggest turning off Cool n Quiet option if you have it when you are on a stock cooler, and even when on an aftermarket cooler in my case.
