Hi, I have the following equipment
Operating system: Windows 10 64-bit
Processor: Ryzen 5 2600
Memory: 16 GB - DDR4 3000MHZ
Graphics card: RX 5600XT 20.9.1 drivers without adrenalin
I have the game installed on a Samsung EVO 970 nvme ssd
My launch options are as follows:
-novid -fullscreen + fps_max 144 -high -preload
Energy management plan in windows is set to AMD Balanced
The problem that I have exactly is that while I'm in the lobby or firing range, the graphics works at 100%, at 1700mhz + - and everything seems to be going well, but when I start playing, the use of the gpu drops to 50%, 70% or less (more or less randomly), and also the mhz of the graph clock also drops even to 400mhz, which causes me brutal fps drops in some cases and stuttering in others, in which even having 140fps, I notice the I * game as if I were playing at 20 fps.
All caused by these drops in use and mhz.
Say that I have the drivers and windows updated to the latest versions. And also it only happens to me in the apex, any other game / benchmark works perfectly and performing as it should.
Solved! Go to Solution.
please complete your start options with this: -dev
Otherwise some arguments like -novid doesen't work.
Please improve your resolution/grafic settings ingame to put more load on GPU. If your resolution ingame is to low, you'll run into CPU limit like this.
Maybe a setting in your driver is causing this as well: Disable "Radeon Chill".
One more tipp: use +fps_max 0 and cap with grafic driver or a tool like rivia tuner statistic server (RTSS).
Thank you, but I'm still having these issues, in any other game my gpu works properly but in Apex the performance is awful.
In the firing range and the lobby, the performance is perfect, mhz at 1700 and gpu usage at 100%

@Mowgl13i have the exact same problem its like cpu bottleneck but it isn't.
when game start and i am on the ship fps drops to 50 - 80 fps and after landing fps get a little better like 100 - 150 fps but not even %80 usage on gpu and cpu is like 40 ish percent with smt on and 80 ish with smt off.
i dont have this problem in firing range gpu usage is %99 there
i don't have this problem on any other games
apex please add vulkan support
cpu : 1700 oc 3.75

ram: 2*8 g.skill 3200 run at 3000 15 cl
asus b350f gaming
ssd wd blue 1tb
power 550w and i use 2 * 6-pin to 8-pin convertor
all drivers updated to last version even bios is last version
