BF3 Fps Drops

cpu - i5 4440 stock clock 3.10GHz
gpu - gtx 650 1gb
8gb ram

windows 7 64 bit home premium
game @1080p
lowest possible setting to receive constant 60fps

standard bf3 maps (not dlc) i can get a constant 60fps even with explosions in my face!
but now i'm getting fps drops from 60 - 40 -50 fps it sucks! i never had fps drops before.

my gpu drivers are uptodate - using nvidia's geforce experience
my cpu is not throttling of any sort

i run virus scans daily along checking for malware

i don't have this problem in any other game

    Did this start happening after you updated the drivers for the GPU? As my guess is there was a change in the GPU drivers which caused the fps drops to start occurring

    yes there was a driver update recently and from then i got fps drops
  3. any suggestion for fix?
  4. New Drivers are not often perfect as they came out, I guess that your new update is totally buggy that is why you got fps drop problem. Downgrade it to the previous version and wait for 2 weeks after the new update optimized more.
