I looked around and found nothing on the subject.

Is anyone else experiencing a large drop in framerate since the 1.16 patch?

I have noticed a drop as well, and have noticed more crashing as well. I wasn't sure if it was related to the patch or a random occurrence. Wonder how many other people have this going on.

I know that as soon as I logged in I started experiencing crazy artifacting, and was forced to re-install drivers from scratch.

Funny thing is, in the thread for the patch, someone told me it was on my end and had nothing to do with SE. Same person says that there's nothing wrong with these awful patches.

How often do you guys air dust your PC? A little amount of dust on the heatsink can easily raise temp around 10c.

Also, it's very important to take cooling into account, many things including computer case, fan position, etc. may affect your CPU/GPU heat dissipation.

Take the most demanding game you play and note the average CPU/GPU temps, after 10 minutes, then remove your case cover and do the same. If temp raises more than 5c your PC has poor cooling performance. Depending on how close the closed case temps are to the maximum recommended for your CPU/GPU you can ignore it or fix it by air dusting (vacuum it at the same time, otherwise the dust will be back inside in a couple of days), changing to a better case, most gaming oriented cases from decent brands do a good job, switching to more efficient aftermarket heatsink/fan, run with your case open (more dust, risky), or, run your games on lower settings.

If you didn't get that you deserve the crazy artifacting©.

I understood it, just not sure how it relates to the game crashing ...

Granted I am not all that PC savvy.

I also have experienced repeated crashes since the last patch. Before the last patch I didnt crash. This PC is also only a couple weeks old so I can't imagine it has that much dust built up inside it yet to cause my game to crash 3 or 4 times or more a day.

rofl yeah, the post makes sense. but you might as well have posted a pancake recipe, because it has no relevance to the OP, or to my artifacting post...

I haven't had anything showing FPS running, but my lag has been noticably worse since the servers started up again. I've toned down the graphic settings, but I still don't think it's running as well as it used to.

Heat.

Heat is a very common cause of graphic artifacts (GPU) and system instability (CPU/RAM).

I have a gain since last WHQL Nvidia driver and the Beta released the other day... GTX 470 on 64bit 7 if it makes a difference.

I clearly said all I had to do was re-install drivers.

And I replied to the thread in general, not just to you.

Can't say i've noticed any lag what so ever. Ofcourse, i did move from a GTX250 to a GTX460 during it. By my experiences, the game hasnt run as smooth like this ever before, and now on max settings no less. So i'm not really sure what the actual situation would have been as far as lag goes. All i know is i've been getting 5-6 times the performance i used to get >_>
