Call of Duty Black Ops 4 PC

Highlighted

Hello everyone,

 

So after not playing for a little. i noticed after playing 1 round that my FPS would go from over 100+ FPS to 50-60 and make it no where near as buttery. ive already updated my drivers with clean install and still occurs. Tempertures are fine and its not getting remotely close to the concerning point.

Specs are:

Intel 8700k OC'd 5.1GHZ
Corsair 360MM AIO cooler
G-Skilll ripjaws 16GB @ 3200MHZ dual channel 
Asus ROG maximus XI hero WIFI
Gigabyte Aorus 1080TI
Samsung 970 pro NVME M.2
Western Digitial black series 2TB
EVGA 850W PSU Modular
Acer Predator XB271HU 2560 X 1440p 165hz

My first thought is thermal throttling. Try removing all your overclocking and instead of using the highest Graphics settings try opening Nvidia Experience, use the Custom Slider and move it somewhere in the "Middle" or a notch lower. 

 

Having a variation of 20-30 FPS is pretty common. However, a 50% drop is probably due to some thermal issue .. EVEN IF your temperatures say otherwise. 

 

I say this first-hand, my OC actually is less than my stock or close to stock speeds. Now the first game might be good but after no time that "advantage" goes away. The GTX series likes 65°C and it'll do things like dropping frame rates to keep it, especially in BO4. At least that's my experience, and no it's irrelevant what it does other games.

momba1,

i dont want to sound like im comming off incorrect. but, if a thermal throttling event is happening you would think it would do it to all games? because all my other games are fine.

Never said BO4 represents "all games" .. carefully read exactly what I said. When I have a problem in a game .. I try to solve them. Yes other games sometimes don't do well with temperatures hitting a GPUs Boost threshold.

 

I was essentially running a similar set-up. Another thing is try a custom fan profile and increase your fan speed on your GPU. 

 

No one uses the Graphic Default settings with a 1440p and a GTX 1080 Ti. LMAO there are people running RTX 2080 Ti's on 1080p 240 Hz monitors that can't peg 240 FPS at Default (closer to 180-200 FPS). 

 

Think of BO4 like Crysis .. a Rendering Hog but instead of stellar graphics .. poorly optimized.

 

Try what I suggested and let me know.

Hi I get bad FPS drops also mainly on lock up & gridlock my specs are also 8700k @5GHz Corsair 360aio max temps 70c, 32gb 3200mhz ram & msi gaming x trio 2080 TI max temp 71c, monitor acer predator x34p 3440 x 1440 ultrawide Gsync 120hz mine was fine till the 1.16 update came out now it drops to about 70fps from 150+ For about 1 second 2-3 times per match it’s not your pc it’s the game

The current version on PC is 1.15. I have a 
Acer Predator Z1 165 Hz 1440p monitor, a Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2080 Ti, on an LGA 2066 based rig. Even I don't use the Default Graphics settings.

 

My observations as I've reported are an average of 10 FPS overall loss after the last update, but I'm certainly not running across a 50% drop. Unless something is really screwed up anyone with a "120 Hz monitor" and an RTX 2080 Ti should have absolutely not have any problems pegging 120 FPS on all maps. Anything more any you're disabling your G-Sync and tearing.

 

Especially if you have a G-Sync monitor .. SET THE MAX FPS to 2 FPS less than your refresh rate. Example 120 Hz (Max FPS = 118), 144 Hz (Max FPS = 142), 165 Hz (Max FPS = 163), etc and in the Menu I use Max FPS = 60 FPS to allow a cool down. Most RTX GPUs run hot and relatively unstable frame rates after prolonged periods of time.

 

Your AIO is needed more on your RTX.

 

Prior to the RTX 2080 Ti I had a GTX 1080 (non Ti) .. I literally bought it the first two or three days it was available, and it was a Gigabyte G1. However, just out of total curiosity, I swapped it back in to compare. My results were 10-15 FPS lower with 1.15 settings per settings. And an overall average of 110-120 FPS with NO MASSIVE FPS drops using Nvidia's Experience Custom Slider (2 notches from the left). The only Maps that buggers up my frame rates are Militia and oddly Nuketown.

 

I have friends running the GTX 1080 Ti's and none of them are running Default Graphics and the couple PCs using that GPU have 32 GB RAM and i9's on LGA 1151 and they're complaining about reduced frame rates but not massive drops. 

 

Reread my comments, try both lowering settings and reducing all your temperatures.

 

For myself my magic minimum is 140 FPS and without tearing with my properly set up G-Sync monitor AND MAX FPS Graphic settings.

Hi there I do cap my frame rate using msi afterburner capped at 117 FPS my res is 3440x1440 so a bit more demanding than standard 2560x1440 vsync off on all maps it stays pegged apart from gridlock & lock up its defo something on the update as it was fine before that my temps are fine max ive ever seen it go to is 71c on the gpu 2080ti still get dips down in the 70s on those 2 maps

Try Lowering your settings and Disable your Afterburner. I'm not just pulling these suggestions out my backside. I don't have a 3440x1440 because I won't buy a 120 Hz monitor, it's too slow for me and I've been waiting for YEARS for the ASUS PG35VQ 200Hz G-Sync .. HDR, 3440x1440, blah .. blah. 

 

The "processing" is about the same, my frame rates are 37% higher and your resolution is 34% higher.

 

The RTX has a couple issues, I went into this knowing it, Power and Temperature. If you want to run some useless benchmarks for an Average based score then OC away. Those temperatures aren't great either, combining the two no surprise to me. If you're going to play one game then OC .. enjoy. I too assume you're Pre-Loading the textures and the game is loaded on one of those SSDs .. otherwise yep that's another cause of massive frame drops.

 

You're running a Marathon not a 50 Yard Dash.
