FPS constantly dropping on good hardware
By - ItsHighNub
This has been happening to me as well, no issues on other games at all. This started with Season 7.
Same. I don't have a monster rig but was fine on High settings pre-season 7. Now I guess High=pre-7 Epic so I went down to Medium, still turned stuff down and still get ridiculous stutters.
I noticed it started around that time as well, and I dont have this issue with other games either. It makes the game unplayable for me.
I think this is a server side issue…Other than these drops it’s been running fantastically and it looks great.
I dont see how its a server issue to be honest, the problem goes away when im spectating somebody else, but when im controlling the character, it happens.
100% what you just said man,
The spectating is smooth but actually playing isnt.
What is your temp at?
Around 70 in farenheit
I moved it from a hard drive to an SSD, no change, maybe it even got worse since it its not just stuttering any more, but also not hitting 100 fps.
Try the usual suspects to see if it makes any difference:
1. Turn DLSS off
2. Switch to DX11 or DX12
3. Set fortnite .exe's Priority to High via Task Manager
4. Turn off Windows Game Mode / Hardware Accelleration
Sucks that we always have to do this sort of thing with new updates - things were running great for me until the update. Hitching and Stuttering is just brutal!
1. I dont have DLSS since im on AMD
2. Tried both DX11 and DX12, no difference
3. Havent tried, will try now
4. Game mode is off, how do I turn off hardware acceleration
Honestly same here, most of the time it’s epics side of stuff
