I have been seeing very low FPS rates recently, sometimes as low as 15 whereas normally I would expect 100+


Nothing altered here and I have a 1070 graphic card with 8gb which has been sufficient up to now.


Is this affecting anyone else i.e. is it at my end or from WG.

No mines been running fine around 100fps, 1060 GPU, but have noticed when the dreaded lag kicks in FPS will drop to 80 or so.

Maybe your end?

I moved this thread to the Tech Corner section.


If you have these drops in FPS check the temperatures of GPU and CPU.

If the temperatures are high on one of the two processors, the thermal protection of the hardware is activated by reducing the frequencies with which the processors work, also check the RAM and Vram and VRM temperatures of your GPU/MoBo.

Thanks I will have a look at temperatures.

15 fps with that spec, is definitely your PC causing the issue.

Check all your fans are clean and working, and all the usual background apps. No need to be anal about it, but you dont want a viruscan running while you are playing.

Even if temperature was the issue, I doubt it'd go all the way down to 15fps...and it wouldn't happen immediately.


I remember people having issues with the JgPzE100 3D style causing massive frame drops, were there any nearby?


For temperature monitoring, and other things, get MSI Afterburner. It comes with RTSS, which is the on-screen monitoring software allowing you to keep an eye on temperatures and usage % of your CPU and GPU, and RAM.


MSI Afterburner is an overclocking software. But, don't adjust the settings if you don't know the first thing about overclocking or underclocking which could lower temperatures if necessary.


Also, dust your PC every few months.

Enable Triple Buffering in graphical options.
I'd look for problem elsewhere tbh. Even though WoT is an oldschool game, it is quite resource intensive, wrong drivers/optimisation/missmanagement lead to massive and unstable FPS drops. Maybe your PC is polluted (too may unnecessary programs in the background/etc). Clean the dust, defragment the hdd, run the free Malwarebytes. Take care of your PC.

Dual core 3.80ghz
8gb ddr3
Nvidia Geforce GTX 660

Running 50-80FPS stable.

Many thanks to everyone who offered advice. I took it all including enabling triple buffering (though in truth I have no idea what that does).


I also stripped my laptop down and cleaned all the fans and filters. Seems to have done the trick as the last game ran at 158fps  (didn't improve my win rate though)


I should really have cleaned the fans before as this laptop has always run very hot due I guess to a big graphics card in a small enclosure.


Anyway, sorted now hopefully.
