RageFrost Posted August 18, 2016 Share Posted August 18, 2016 (edited) Just wanted to make people aware of this issue if they come across it. It's intended for Nvidia users specifically. Recently did a video driver update and discovered an issue with BNS and the 2 most recent driver updates with Nvidia. This issue doesn't appear to effect other games only BNS. When launching BNS you get to the "Authentication Screen." If you suddenly notice a HUGE and DRASTIC fps drop it's because of the Nvidia Drivers. The issue occurs when you shutdown / reboot your PC then launch BNS. In my case my FPS went from 120 fps down to 20 fps. And the only fix for it is to reinstall drivers. However, I rolled back to 368.39 because BNS worked fine with that driver while the 2 most recent drivers displayed the issue. Update: Can confirm 372.54 drivers will fix this issue as well, 368.39 drivers were crashing for me constantly, so I tried this new driver, and as far as the FPS drop is concerned it's not an issue. I just have to wait and see if the 372.54 drivers crash like the 368.39 drivers. The reproduction steps for this issue are: CPU: i7 3820 @ 3.6 Video Card: MSI 980Ti 6GB (368.39 driver issue resurfaced after BNS update August 23rd 2016) RAM: G.Skill 16GB 1600Mhz Motherboard: Asus P9X79 SSD: Mushkin Scorpion Drive Note: Issue does not effect other games only BNS from what I've tested. 1. Currently you have the issue 2. Reinstall Nvidia drivers (clean install) (Reboot PC) - Recommend using DDU to do a clean uninstall of Nvidia drivers - Run as Admin) 3. Test FPS in BNS (you don't need to go past the OTP Authentication screen it will be visible there) 4. IF FPS is normal - Shut down your PC - Start your PC - Start BNS - Check FPS again 5. IF issue is still present (See my update below) Just wanted to give people a heads up, if they come across the same issue. Quote Update: 09/16/2016 - Issue is caused by G-Sync being enabled for windowed mode: See my most recent post below for more details.
