    Very sluggish in games/fps drops


    Hi guys, and Happy Holidays :)

    I'm at witts end with this thing, I updated to the October 1809 update, but can't remember if the issue started before that, in games I have lost at least half of the FPS I used to get, for example, in Euro Truck Sim 2 I used to get 140 easily, now I'm lucky to get 50! Same has Battlefield V I used to get 120+ with custom settings, now I'm down to 70fps, but worst of all, in Fifa I could get 200 fps easily, I still do but I get severe microstuttering, will list the things I have tried

    Ran SFC/Scannow (fine)
    Defragged my gaming drive (fine) but Bf is on a Intel SSD
    Ran Malware software
    Updated Nvidia drivers to the latest to no avail
    Installed all latest windows drivers
    Installed Latest Bios and drivers from website

    Pc specs:

    Amd Ryzen 1800x
    MSI gaming x370
    Msi Armor GTX 1070
    16GB Corsair Vengeance 3000mhz DDR4
    Coolermaster Lite 120mm AIO
    Kingston 128GB (windows) SSD
    2TB Firecuda (Gaming) SSHD
    Intel 128GB SSD
    Hitatchi 260GB for Photoshop and Guitar software
    Toshiba 600GB for Random stuff
    Corsair 1050w PSU
    EVGA DG-85 Case

    Peripherals

    Asus VG248QE 144HZ
    Samsung S22B300
    Corsair k70 RGB Keyboard
    Corsair Sabre Mouse
    Logitech C920 Webcam
    Hyper X revolver Headset
    TP-Link USB Hub (Externally Powered)

    P.s I have a stable Overclock at 3.95Ghz on all cores, tested using AIDA64 for 24 Hours with no crashes, I have not overclocked the ram only set it to XMP and the GPU is stock out the box.

    Thanks for the reply... DDU was the first thing I did (used DDU installed drivers then uninstalled the driver again with DDU) but I don't think it's my graphics drivers, I think it's something to do with the Windows update.

    If you back off all of the overclocking, does it help or make things worse?

    Second, if you use HWMonitor, what are your system specs?

    It certainly sounds like this is a driver issue since this happened after the 1809 update. If you didn't delete the Windows.old folder, you could see about reverting back to 1803 and seeing if the problem remains or not.

    Alternatively, I would check all of the hardware manufacturer's driver pages for everything in your system to see if they released any new drivers.

    Did you try chipset drivers straight from AMD instead of MSI ? I always update them from AMD as they are usually more up to date.

    Would I go to AMD website and look up my motherboard? I've never downloaded straight from AMD before, always used MSI.

    Yes. Go to AMD webpage and download latest chipset drivers for your mainboard.
