Random Frame Drops & 100% GPU Usage

I came back after an extended break from destiny 2 to find that randomly my frames will drop from 60+ to less than 20, this is after being able to run destiny at medium to high at a consistent 60 fps. Whilst i was trying to find the issue I also found that in task manager when I am running destiny my gpu usage is at 100%. My specs are: AMD FX 8350 16GB Corsair Ram Nvidia GTX 970 In trying to fix my frame drops I have found that when the issue occurs, according to task manager my CPU and GPU usage drop from whatever they were previously at to less than 20% each, when this stops the frames return.I'm not sure if this is any use. I have tried a few things to fix this: ipconfig/flushdns ipconfig/release ipconfig/renew 3 Fresh installs of windows 2 Fresh installs of destiny 2, both on an SSD and a HDD Changing my settings to low from medium, turning on Vsync and capping my frames at 60, my monitors refresh rate. I have tried going through each setting individually and changing them, none of this has worked. Is there anything else I can do to try and fix this? The game is unplayable as I cant be consistent for my team. Is there any more information that you need to help fix this issue?

  • An update to this in case anyone needs it in the future, it was the AMD Turbo Core issue and has completely fixed the issue.

  • The game is poorly optimized. It happened to me, same goes for my friend and my friend has a god tier gaming pc. While mine is highish but still get drops in d2 only.

    • I would download MSI Afterburner. You can open it, play the game, and it records system vitals in the background. You get way more information, and you dont have to alt-tab out of the game, or play it in windowed mode (if using only one monitor of course) It will tell you things like max temps, power consumption, memory usage, etc all in line graphs. Just shut the game down after an fps drop, and look at your vitals history. All of them. You may see something to help indicate a hardware issue.

    • Curious question: have you done any graphics driver updates between when you previously played, and now? It could be that your drivers need an update, or that a recent update is causing issues. I’d suggest checking on your drivers, as I’ve had similar issues to yours in the past (with other games), and it was due to improperly installed driver updates. I started only doing manual Nvidia updates, rather than the auto updates, and have not had this issue since.

        • "AMD FX 8350" Had this exact same issue with the exact same CPU and GFX card back in the day on Tom Clancy's The division Go to your bios and disable "AMD Turbo Core" IF that isnt the issue, i would wager you have temperature issues going on with the card
