So up until this past weekend D2 has been one of my smoothest running games on PC. However, this past weekend going forward, I started having incredibly severe FPS drops. I run the game at 4k, usually at 60 fps no sweat. The main bits of my hardware are as follows: i7-6700 RTX 2070 (overclocked) 16 gb RAM Saved on an HDD There are three strange things about the FPS drops though, which make me think it might not be just me needing to tweak settings. 1. It doesn't seem to have any real relation to what is happening on screen. It is just as likely to happen when I am wandering around a relatively quiet patrol zone as it is while I am in my inventory menus as it is while I am running the Menagerie. 2. It drops from exactly 60 to exactly 30, with no inbetween or anything less. Like it is hitting some sort of hidden 30 fps lock under my 60 fps cap. 3. The drops never last more than a couple minutes, but do repeat frequently. Hoping this is something maybe I am just missing, but if not, better to report it so someone can take a peek at it.
Hi. Appreciate your report. You may want to perform a [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Help/Article/46501]scan and repair[/url] in the Battle.net app to see if that may help with your issue.
