Thanks for the reponse.
Even when is contains results for some search query i could probably had searched for myself if i took the time. Sorry for that, but thanks nevertheless.
To the solutions givven:
- Asus Tweak is not installed on my PC. I have the AI suite for the BIOS-Updates and other drivers for the MB, though. I dont think it does something with the driver - because it doesnt have those features. I set the Services of asus at manual starting option - so they can start if i need them.
- A clean installation of the Driver is what i did, but obviously not thoroughtly. This time i did with the DDU.
-The GPU goes successfull in idle and lowers the clock alright when outside a Game. Ingame it never lowers the clock. It stays at 1010mhz at all times, but the fps drops appear anyway. So i think i doesnt realy apply here. But thanks for the suggestion, i'll keep it in mind.
I'll test the new configuration tomorrow and i'll respond here with the Results.
The posts I linked you to were supposed to represent the wide range of issues that were solved by getting rid of the third party apps....not that each applied to your post.
I am not fond of "Optimizations"
AMD AM4 ATX motherboard with Aura Sync, DDR4 3200MHz, 32Gb/s M.2, DP/HDMI, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.1
- 5-Way Optimization: One-click system-wide tuning that now also senses GPU temperatures to ensure cooler gaming
I have the same issue, i dont have a solution but this problem appear at the same time that amd's drivers updated. You're not alone in this owful moment Y.Y
Back again after 1 hour of testing. Running ARK on same settings like ever and after 1 hour no Hangs and/or FPS drops.
So the problem seems to be solved.
What i did beforehand:
- Uninstalling Catalyst with "Clean Uninstall" from "Programs and Features" in Control Panel.
- Start Windows in Safemode. Uninstalling Drivers with the Display Driver Uninstaller tool.
- Deactivating Asus Services: asComSvc; asHmComSvc; AsSysCtrlService.
- Restart PC in normal Mode; Installing Catalyst 17.7.1
- Testing Games.
I also tried activating the Asus Services again to see, if the FPS-drops reappear. Strangely enough, they were gone for good. So maybe it was a catalyst problem? Probably.. but i'm not sure about that.
Thanks again to Kingfish for the pointers. And yeh... "optimizations" often make things worse. I can relate.
