Never used to have this problem but now when I try to play fortnite with my vega 56, core i5 8500, and 8gb of ddr4 2400 memory fortnite runs with consistent frame drops and at times becomes impossible to play why could this be?

Fortnite is running on a TB ssd.  I only have a 60hz monitor so the game is running at 60fps with drops down to 20 sometimes.  Fortnite and forza horizon 4 is also like this.  It could possibly be my internet speed too

What FPS do you have in game? Is this only in Fortnite?

 

Is Windows + Fortnite on an SSD or a HDD?

sorry forgot to quote

You either have Vsync on, or your capping your frames in game. Turn off Shadows, AA, and post processing, i do this even with a 1080ti, they are garbage and dont add much.

Disable vsync in games, no reason why you should use it on a 60hz display other than screen tearing.

well get a freesync monitor or your kinda stuck, since without letting your frames go above 60 your gimping the card lol

^ This, I leave vsync of even with dealing with screen tearing as having poor frame rate and studdering due to a locked frame rate is a massive no go for me.

This a pretty big issue that a lot of people don't get and can get rather infuriated over, I know I sure did back when I built my first system. 

 

Vsync is what limits your in game FPS to the refresh rate of your monitor. Now, in practice having a high end system running with vsync turned on sounds ideal right? No screen tearing and smooth gameplay. HOWEVER, as we all now, even the best systems encounter lag spikes, nothing can be done for most systems, it's just the way it is. So when you've got this big fancy graphics card and cpu, and you play on a low refresh rate monitor with vsync enabled, you will get lag spikes time to time and they will be so much more noticeable. 

 

One way of fixing this (as mentioned before) is AMD FreeSync or Nvidia G-SYNC. How this works is pretty simple, the monitor's refresh rate will constantly adapt to whatever your graphics card can put out. I'll use my system as an example to explain. I have a GTX 1080Ti Armor OC from MSI, with a 27" Acer Predator 240Hz monitor. When I play games such as Arma 3 or the likes of Forza Horizon 4, I'm never hitting 240 FPS, it's seemingly impossible when running on max settings. So when you're running at whatever FPS, let's say 80, my monitor's refresh rate will match that, meaning I get a smooth picture, with no screen tearing. This holds true all the way down to 30FPS. Now another thing to note is the inevitable lag spikes I mentioned. When you're running at a higher refresh rate and fps, these performance drops are much less noticeable, especially on higher spec systems such as mine. 

 

Hopefully that's explained it a little bit for you. 

 

So in reality, there's very little you can do for now, unless you whack down your settings to stop any lag spikes OR you can deal with the screen tearing. As you're running an AMD card, I recommend looking for a FreeSync monitor, they're relatively inexpensive compared to G-SYNC panels and will give you the adaptive refresh rate I mentioned :)
