GTX1080ti massive fps drop and low GPU usage
Hello, I'm experiencing a massive FPS drop in couple of games. For example in Battlefield 1 my GPU can only reach about 40-55fps. A week ago my FPS was by 120-135 at same settings. My specs are: GPU: 1080 Ti @ 2038MHz GPU and 6003Mhz Memory (overclocked and water cooled) CPU: i7 7700k @ 4900MHz (overclocked and water cooled) RAM: 16GB @ 3733MHz not overclocked SSD: M.2 960 EVO 256GB (System) SSD: SATA 850 EVO 1TB (Storage) Mainboad: ASUS Z270I Strix Monitor: with G-SYNC 144Hz OS: Windows 10 64Bit updated I already tried: - update BIOS - update Nvidia driver - in energy setting, PCIe at full power (no reduction) - shutting down all app running in Background - watching the CPU usage (is not expiring 85%) during the games - in Nvidia setting shut down Vsync - in Nvidia setting performance at full power - downgrading Nvidia driver to a version from October. (good old day with no problems) - I did not overclocked anything (stock speeds, reset BIOS) and repeated all the bullet points as above The strange thing is as I play the GPU usage is by about 40-50% and not more. On the other hand I tried Benchmarks like Heaven and Unigine Superposition and there is my GPU usage at 99%. Also when I play BF1 and set “resolution scale” to 150% the GPU usage is rising up to 98%. I also have the same Problem in games like Witcher 3. But I don't have any problems with The Division stable 90-100 FPS on ultra any time. Do you have some advise for me, please help.
Hello,
I'm experiencing a massive FPS drop in couple of games. For example in Battlefield 1 my GPU can only reach about 40-55fps. A week ago my FPS was by 120-135 at same settings.

My specs are:
GPU: 1080 Ti @ 2038MHz GPU and 6003Mhz Memory (overclocked and water cooled)
CPU: i7 7700k @ 4900MHz (overclocked and water cooled)
RAM: 16GB @ 3733MHz not overclocked
SSD: M.2 960 EVO 256GB (System)
SSD: SATA 850 EVO 1TB (Storage)
Mainboad: ASUS Z270I Strix
Monitor: with G-SYNC 144Hz
OS: Windows 10 64Bit updated

I already tried:

- update BIOS
- update Nvidia driver
- in energy setting, PCIe at full power (no reduction)
- shutting down all app running in Background
- watching the CPU usage (is not expiring 85%) during the games
- in Nvidia setting shut down Vsync
- in Nvidia setting performance at full power
- downgrading Nvidia driver to a version from October. (good old day with no problems)
- I did not overclocked anything (stock speeds, reset BIOS) and repeated all the bullet points as above



The strange thing is as I play the GPU usage is by about 40-50% and not more. On the other hand I tried Benchmarks like Heaven and Unigine Superposition and there is my GPU usage at 99%. Also when I play BF1 and set “resolution scale” to 150% the GPU usage is rising up to 98%. I also have the same Problem in games like Witcher 3. But I don't have any problems with The Division stable 90-100 FPS on ultra any time.

Do you have some advise for me, please help.

I try it, could only remove 1 update Flash Player - no changes. I also had at this time the Win10 update KB4041994 but I can't uninstall it. I also tryied the clean boot - no effect but I realized the graphic of BF1 have more "glitter" since the problem occured.

a small update: I could take my old GTX980 Ti and put in my problem PC, I a get up to 90fps and good 80-85% GPU usage. It means only the 1080ti is affected. The card is driven "false" Is there a possiblility to check the Nvidia driver if this is the problem link in the chain?

So, I also tested my "old" GPU and it seems to be OK with FPS - but this was not the solution. I reinstalled Win 10 yesterday and everysince all is going normal again. I wish to find other solution also for possible other user with the same problem - sorry. THX all of you for your support.
