I play WoT on a Core i7 quad core machine @ 3.6 GHz with a Geforce 1070 GTX. Usually I have a framerate > 100 fps. I have turned off most effects (smoke, fire, explosions). However, under certain circumstances I am getting extreme lag. One occasion seems to be when my tank catches fire. The entire graphics slow down to a slide show for several seconds. This although as I have said I have turned most fx off. This is extremey annoying and frequently has cost me my tank when it caught fire despite almost all my tanks having an automatic fire extuingisher, because I couldn't aim or move properly anymore.

 

Something is severely flawed in the graphics engine of WoT here.

Has nothing to do with ping (< 40 ms for me), and happens with older and with current client. It's a graphics issue. I suppose the system somehow still processes special fx, just doesn't render them.

I think that is a processor related issue. I had unusual issues on some maps when there is alot of tanks being rendered including alot of buildings. There is nothing we can do about it. Its simply an old engine and we can only hope for the better with the HD maps rehaul. One spot I have it always is Highway map going trough the city from the north spawn. What seems to cause the problem more frequently is running trough obstacles and the particle effects trigger the huge FPS drops.

Regarding choppy graphics, and even though I am sure you checked this, make sure of the following.....

 

- Updated drivers

- Card overheating

- Overclocking too much (if any)

I had a topic like this back in patch 8.something, but if there is one thing I have noticed about World Of Tanks, it consumed alot of RAM, I recommend nothing less than 8GB RAM when attempting to play WOT. How much do you have?

 

Secondly, the client has never changed in architecture, the software on the clients side still remains 32-bit based. It doesn't really utilize your processor to its full potential. I am still playing this game on a GT 450 (ancient) and I have no hiccups running the game on medium settings on a 22" wide screen. Think it's 1366 x 768. But I have 20GB RAM installed.

 

I know this is a very general response but it might give you an indication of what you might have missed. Could also be a bad hard drive.

 

I would suggest doing a rollback on the previously installed drivers?

 

Hope this helps in any way possible!

I have a new high end PC, profesionally put together.

 

New drivers (not beta ones)

Card is 20C below max temps

Processor at stable 45ish

12 Gigs of RAM

1070 (8gigs VRAM)

 

The only game I ever had such issues is WoT.

Obviously. It's you who has the issue, many others do not, but clearly the game is at fault. If I were you, I'd exhaust ALL client side possibilities first, before pointing the finger elsewhere. Start with the Nvidia control panel settings.
