So.. Title says it all..
Since about 2 days, or the last game update, my game will not play smoothly at all..
In fights, the FPS drops to about 4 or 5.
Reinstalled the game 3 times
Verified game files 2 times
Cleared the Origin cache about 6 times now
I have a 35" Asus PQ monitor at 100Hz, native resolution 3440x1440
My rig is as followed:
Threadripper 16-core 32 threads at 4.0GHz per core
64GB Ram at 3200Mhz
M.2 SSD 960PRO @ 3500MBS harddrives x2 (1TB total)
GTX 1080Ti OC Aorus version
Apex Legends has an average of 25FPS, EVEN in 1920 x 1080p windowed mode on LOW...
No app in the background, no browsers. Only Discord and Origin
Origin Overlay disabled
Geforce Experience overlay disabled
Windows game bar Disabled
No Vsync limitations
WIndows is up to date
NVIDIA Drivers are up to date, even rolled back to 2 earlier versions, no effect. -> Rolled back to latest version
Everything is on LOW, most of the items disabled except shadows
FOV Standard, even tried turning it down or up completely, No change.
NVIDIA Control panel settings:
Edited the application to point out that i'm using the GTX1080Ti
1 Pre rendered frame
Performance settings instead of quality setting
Vsync turned off
The game is UNPLAYABLE. The system has no issues what soever.
Other games run at 100FPS Straight, without a problem.
Games that run on 100FPS on ultra, no limits in settings, at 3440 x 1440
A way out
Devmgmt list shows no failing hardware
Memory test turn out 100% OK (Including MEMTEST)
LatencyMON Shows no driver latency
Taskmgr shows no issues
Ingame GPU fluctuates from 60 to 85% Never higher
CPU ingame fluctuates from 20 to 40% Never higher
Is there anything else I can try? I doubt it....
Hope to hear,
Does it happen if you try a proper clean boot as described in: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows ?
hey, I had the same problem as you, however I found a fix. Click the little arrow on the right of your taskbar and from the menu select NVIDIA settings. Under manage 3d settings, find the dropdown and from it select 'high performance NVIDIA processor' then at the bottom right click apply. Not sure if it will work, good luck.
The rapid mode isn't available in the 9xx series of the M.2 drives So it's disabled by default>
Thanks alot for the info though! :D
Cleanboot didn't work.
Using a DDU to remove the entire GPU drivers and reinstalling different versions - No fix.
I even stress tested the CPU, the GPU and the memory -> Great results.
What else can I try? ANyone?
