sudden fps drops in ALL games

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so for some reason, after playing risk of rain 2, while literally doing NOTHING in the settings, game frames drop, in all games that i play. games on both ssd and hdd, meanwhile my pc is pretty decent. (I5 9th gen, 1GTX050 and 8gb ram) doesnt matter how much i lower the graphics, even though it shouldnt even be needed since i can play everything on max graphics and still get 80 frames, and now it runs at 15-30. i tried edditting some values in the regedit thing, and it helped, but two days later the same thing happened and now it wont work. its not the overheating problem either, since the day after when my temperature was fine, it still had bad frames. anyone knows what the problem is and what i can do about it? thanks in advance.

First, you need to determine what is going on under the hood, so-to-speak. Use MSI Afterburner to monitor things while you play your games. You can create an OSD (on-screen-display) that shows you important statistics about your system as you play. 

 

You'll need to monitor the following:

GPU core clock, memory clock, temperature, CPU core clock (of all cores), CPU temperature, and anything else you think is worthwhile.

 

If you can report what these numbers look like before and after the FPS drop, that would be great. Otherwise, you can cross reference them against your system's specs to know if your system is running below-spec.

 

Also, tell us more about your system! What are all the components?

 

Oh, and make sure HDMI is plugged into the GPU.

hi there, when i started playing today for the tests, it was all fine to what i used to play as, but it might come back later. I have screenshots of how it used to run, so ill send them here, as for my components : It is a Lenovo ideapad L340. processor is i5-9300HF (consists of 4 cores) and a clockspeed of 2,4GHZ with a max of 4,1 GHZ.it has 8 gigs of ram, with a max of 16. (1 ram slot). it has an ssd with 128 gb, and a hdd of 1000GB. graphics card is a GTX1050 with 3072MB. i do not know what you mean by plugging my HSMI into my gpu, maybe you can explain later? my screenshots are here, i played three types of games, one thats easy to run(persona 4 golden on max settings, around 80 fps), one thats difficult to run(risk of rain 2 on max settings, 60 fps)), and overwatch which is pretty difficult to run(high settings, around 60-70 fps). like i said i only have screenshots of it when it runs decently, and not when the problem occrus, when it does occur again ill make some more screenshots(excuse the other screen btw in the screenshot, i dont know how to remove it when i take one) :)

Great, thank you!

 

I assume you have just one ram stick then? If so, 8 GB may get filled up fast. Before you notice the issue, can you please include the ram usage in the OSD?

 

I was not aware we were talking about a laptop so just ignore the comment about plugging the HDMI into the GPU. That is an easy mistake to make and would cap your performance to the integrated graphics of the CPU. 

 

Thanks for the screenshots. They are very low res so it is hard to make out what the OSD says but it works and that is what matters!

hi there, the problem just occured again, and here are the screens, itll probably be gone by tomorrow but who knows! fps is around 20 when it should be 60 with v-sync, since my monitor is only 60hz

Was your computer running for quite a while? That screenshot doesn't tell me what your CPU is doing so I don't know if that is the problem. However, I did notice that your GPU is running at a lower frequency than in your previous screenshots. It also says "31%" on the OSD, so if that is your GPU usage then it's low. I can't tell why your GPU would be running at a lower clockspeed but it is evidently not because it is overheating since it's reported temperature is too low for that.

 

It could it that your CPU is throttling the GPU. It may be because it is overheating instead of the GPU. If so, you should have the OSD include information on the CPU so you can tell (CPU usage, CPU clockspeeds, CPU temps).

 

Was this when you had been playing a few games for a while? Or right when it started up?

 

Best of luck.
