    FPS gets randomly halved in games, restart/rollback to pre-ReLive drivers helps

    fore1gn

      Ever since ReLive hit I've had these random occurrences of FPS being halved in all games. GPU utilization drops, nothing helps, only a restart. It's frustrating restarting every few hours because of this.

       

      Any fixes apart from rolling back? I've used DDU, safe mode, all multiple times, you name it. Re-rolled to the pre-ReLive drivers, now with 16.12.2 tried it again and the same FPS halving happens, same story all the time. Makes me sad :<

       

      WattMan settings haven't been touched, set up some game profiles to limit FPS to 60-100 in Crimson, use MSI afterburner for custom fan curve.
