If on windows mode, I got 60 fps

However, on full screen mode, I got only 30

It used to be 60 fps either way. I do not know why things changed.


  • What version of Windows (I'm assuming) are you running? What are your computer specs? Do you have an FPS limit set under 'options'? – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Jul 7 '19 at 11:41

    It's fixed. Basically it happens since I change monitor. My monitor accept higher resolution even though it can only show lower resolution. Overwatch automatically try to show higher resolution – user4951 Jul 7 '19 at 11:44

I tried solution here but fail.


So I go to settings and pick borderless window.

There I saw that the resolution for overwatch is too high. It should be 1920 1080.

It seems that when I changed monitor, overwatch automatically uses high resolution thinking that my resolution is higher.

My monitor natural resolution is 1920 1080 but it can accept the higher resolution.

Overwatch try to show higher resolution which is, of course, useless.

  • When I asked the question, I didn't know what's the problem. I found out about this problem afterward and want to tell others with similar problems. Overwatch change resolution without me knowing it. That's why DPS drop to 30. Simply manually changing the resolution helps. – user4951 Jul 8 '19 at 8:17
