Hi, so I have updated my Radeon drivers from 18.2.1 to 18.4.1 and I have noticed some big framerate decreases and instabilities. I uninstalled MSI Afterburner/Rivatuner and the Radeon drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller and reinstalled everything. This did not seem to fix the issue. After reinstalling everything and loading into a Fortnite with my MSI On-Screen Display toggled on, I've noticed the Power Draw was extremely low on the loading screen. It was 15w-20w. When I got into a match, the power wattage was between 95w-115w when it normally is around 145w-165w. Normally, I play Fornite at Medium settings with Far render distance and my framerates are between 120fps to 165fps. Now with the low wattage, they are between 40fps to 90fps. Thank you for reading.
