FPS drop, freeze, lag, etc. - solution.

Recommended Posts

I have been experiencing all of the above, started to test in game settings to find a solution. I think it is worth posting it. I can now play with no issues at all. 

 

My PC is as follows:

 

Intel Core i7-4790K

MSI Z97 MPOWER MAX AC

G.Skill TridentX DDR3 2x8GB 2666MHz CL11

EIZO FORIS FG2421

Asus GeForce GTX 980 DC2 OC Strix 4GB

Asus Xonar DX/XD + unofficial UNi Xonar drivers

 

Windows 10

 

Squad is one of these games, where I feel that lowering the graphics does the oppostie to expectations. I get that kind of feeling, where lower quality = lower performance, while higher = high, it feels weird in general. 

 

It took me quite a bit of testing, trying many possibilities, but as I wrote in the very first line, SQUAD is finally playable to me. 

 

How that was achieved?

 

Regardless of the graphics settings I had +/- 60 FPS, with VSync On. FPS drop, freeze, and lag, all of these appeared more or less one after another, or all at once, and I could not figure what the issue is. Whenever I heard a loud explosion and echo, I knew that I will be out for couple seconds, because that is when it happened.

 

Vsync Off, gave me +40 FPS, now I have +/- 60-100.

 

Full texture loading changed from On to Off, that fixed everything, but I still wonder why this option caused FPS drop, freeze, and lag? Why it always occured when I heard an explosion, and its echo? It was not a hand grenade, or a grenade launcher explosion, I would assume it was an RPG/LAW impact.

From my experience, playing on border-less makes FPS rather steady, 

 

Turn Full Texture Loading OFF AFAIK, 4g VRAM is tidy bit short to handle that

Does your CPU or GPU fan Amp up when that happens? 
I managed to fry 1050 with that same situation.
