Sudden BF3 performance problem Tags: PC gaming Battlefield Video Games Last response: December 8, 2012 7:51 AM in Video Games Share Lunaris December 8, 2012 2:17:02 AM Hello All, I have been playing bf3 on my desktop for several months now: and had a nice 120 fps on Low, 80 on Medium, 65-70 on High and so on in both Single and Multiplayer: I stopped gaming for 4 weeks at a stretch and when I came back to play Bf3 again I found that my FPS in MP dropped to 40~60 on Low. This only happens on MultiPlayer. I updated my Drivers for my GPU (listed below) and after installing the Aftermath expansion it is the same. I have my complete rig listed below. please help! If you require any additional information, please ask. EDIT: This is not only for MP: my GPU performance has dropped on all games.
