Sudden frame drops by GPU hitting 100%
So my wife has a decent gaming laptop with this specs:
CPU : i9-9880h
RAM : 64GB
GPU : 1650 Max-Q(Latest driver)
and the game is installed on a SSD.
Her laptop had optimization issues with the game for a long time(since she started the game back in 2020), so we did everything that the community suggested. Running the game with dx12, playing on window mode, low graphics, playing on full screen with the lowest resolution, capping the frame rate to 60.
The problem seemed to go away when we tried window mode, but still, by random chance(average of 3~4 times per game), when she is with another character in the game, the frame rate drops to like 5. There is absolutely nothing memory/cpu/gpu consuming than dbd.
I tried running the game with the task manager open, and when the frame drop happens, I noticed that dbd suddenly shoots up to using 100% of GPU, thus a massive drop.
I know there have been suggestions about a windows update being an issue, but every thread I checked didn't provide any solution. Does this mean the only solution would be reverting back to various window versions until we find one that doesn't cause a frame drop or just wait for a new update that doesn't cause one? Are there other solutions we could try?
