hi, i play team fortress 2 and i have never ahd problems with fps, i never dropped below 60fps, but now it can drop down to 30-40fps, why? im thinking its the new updates or maybe there is something wrong with my system.
AMD phenom x6 1055t overclocked to 3.08ghz
gtx 560ti Direct CU TOP 2 stock
4gb ram slightly overclocked to 1400mhz
msi 870a-g54 motherboard.
sry for bad english, im swedish
Funny you say that, because I've been having similar problems! I'm using a Radeon 6850 at 1440x900, which I would think should be able to max out the game. I've noticed that the game isn't using a lot of the GPU, the usage is kinda sporadic and it's far from being used fully.....
If it helps, I updated my nvidia driver to 285.38 for my gtx 460, and while my FPS stay in the 160-180 range, I get random dips of 30-60FPS. Also, the game lags and stutters periodically with graphical issues.
Valve must have screwed something up with this last update. It even crashes every so often for me(and everyone else in the server I'm in), but I haven't noticed any fps problems. I'll go check the framerates to see if I have any dips like the big ones you're getting.
