    [14393.953] Terrible gaming performance


    Hello fellow forum members.

    Since the update from 14393.693 to 14393.953 I am experiencing very bad performance in several games (Grim Dawn, CS:GO). Alhough more testing is needed the difference is quite noticeable all across the board.

    Any ideas? Nothing else was changed. I am using nVidia driver 376.53 (from Windows update) and everything was running fine before 14393.953

    What type of "very bad performance" are you talking about? I game and use steam......and to me my gaming experience seems a bit peppier.

    What kind of disk usage do you see in perfmon while the game is paused? Do you have a RAID drive?

    Both CPU usage and disk usage are ZERO when GD is minimized (inside task manager). I haven't tried perfmon. I do not have RAID. Game is installed on SSD but savegames are on a mechanical hd. Using AHCI mode with latest chipset drives (Intel X99 chipset). Updated nVidia drivers to latest version but to no avail. Same crappy performance. I am all out of ideas. I don't know what is causing this.

    I may try making a current backup and restore one I have prior to 14393.953 to try to isolate this issue.

    This is perfmon graphic showing cpu and disk usage for my mechanical HD (where Grim Dawn saves are stored). Grim Dawn is minimized.

    Ok guys.

    I forgot to check the obvious.

    For some odd reason the Superfetch service was DISABLED.

    Grim Dawn performance remains slightly the same but the OS responsiveness overall is ok now.

    I have to do more testing with other games though.
