My ingame FPS drops every few seconds from ~200 to ~20. The game starts perfectly, and in the beginning it runs smoothly, and after a map change it always starts the FPS drops and will not get better until I restart the game.
It has many triggers besides the map change, sometimes it starts dropping when I open the main menu with ESC, sometimes when a flash grenade pops near me, or any kind of smoke in my vision can trigger the effect (zooming to smoke with sniper, standing in smoke, particles after a HE grenade).
I usually have a good in-game fps (between 200 and 300), BUT sometimes when I open the ESC menu, go in smoke, or any other reason I detailed in my previous message my fps drops to 20 for 2 seconds, then its goes back to normal for a 3-4 seconds, then it drops again to 20 FPS for 2 seconds, then back to normal again. It repeats this cycle until I restart my whole game. If the lags starts in-game and I quit to main menu the fps drops is still there with the same intervals.
The game didnt have any problems before.
I dont run any other programs in the background just Steam and CS:GO.
Here is a poor quality recording of the problem, maybe it helps comprehend my issue.
- Reinstalling CS:GO
- Updating all of my drivers
- Completely remove GPU driver with DDU, then install newest, and 3 older driver versions
- Reinstall operating system (Win10)
- Disabling anti-virus, firewall
- Running CS:GO in different compatibility options
- Tweaked with my CS:GO settings, launch options, NVIDIA settings
- Checked my power management settings
My laptop configuration:
- Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5500 CPU @ 2.40GHz, 2397 Mhz, 2 Cores, 4 Logical Processors
- RAM: 8 GB
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT940M 2GB
- Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit build 15063
I would really appreciate some help resolving the issue, it really has a huge negative effect on the gaming experience. During a competitive match usually I have to restart my game atleast 3 times, but my worst case have been 8 restarts during only 1 game.
