I’ve been monitoring the performance on my hardware due to resolve issues with Hots not performing as intended with my current hardware.
I built my system around 3 years ago and had a stable framerate in Hots to begin with. Running at a minimum of 150 fps, with an average fps around 200 the least.
All other games I play the gpu works as intended, without any drops in gpu frequency.
My Gpu runs at a maximum freq. of ~ 1770Mhz. At the beginning of a map when heroes are spawning its fine with 400-600 fps at the start of the map. For some reason after half a minute it drops down to 950-1250Mhz and use only around 30% of the gpu power.
I’ve tried alot to increase the performance playing hots. Sometimes it pops back up at maximum for a short duration of time, then back down again to low freqs.
Very annoying since it affects your performance in the game during combat situations where you can feel that the game slows down and makes it harder to control your hero. When I drop to around 90-110fps from having 150+ stable I experience a big difference.
I also feel like the input isn’t responding as well either with the low framerate.
Running windows 10 always up to date.
What changed during these three years?
New gpu drivers and windows updates are mainly what differs from when it worked as intended earlier. I formated and reinstalled my system 10 days ago and the problems with my hots performance experience remains.
Been trying out different gpu drivers, tweaking and benchmarking, monitoring all temperatures etc. The system works fine on all points, except for when playing Hots!
checking all the power options for maximum/optimal performance, and also all gpu settings on all panels outside and inside the game.
Hopefully someone from Techsupport could identify and resolve this issue with some additional command line enabling the gpu further.
I’m using Nvidia GTX1050Ti 4GB (Both manually OC and without OC)
There are no vBIOS avaliable from ASUS on my specific Gpu card.
Mainboard: ASUS PRIME Z270-K
CPU: Intel i5 6500
RAM: 24GB DDR4 @ 3000Mhz
Tried running it in debug mode, didn’t solve or show anything helpful.
Does anyone know more about this HotS issue?
Are there any solutions, specific gpu drivers or anything else? Let me know!
