Why does my FPS always dip? All my settings are on low. It goes from 62 FPS to 45, sometimes even lower for a few seconds!
I'm confused. I have 8GB of RAM (7.6 of which is usable). I have an Intel i5-3377u at 1.80GHz-2.7GHZ with turboboost. I have an Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics (I know, it's not great but it's still decent). The graphics card has 32 MB of dedicated graphics memory with 1789 MB total total graphics memory. I have my graphics set to High Performance, with the High Performance power plan. I've tweaked my ROengine config for maximum performance (I found the tweaks guide on steam actually). I'm running the game at 640x480 resolution (my native resolution is 1920x1080). EVERYTHING except texture quality (set at medium) is set on low or is turned off. For a couple of days, my FPS was stable and stayed between 55-63 FPS. All of a sudden, it'll usually be within that range but will occasionally dip to anywhere from 35 FPS to 7! Mind you these dips only lasts about a second or two, but it shouldn't be happening. I have decent enough hardware and everything is set at low and my system is set for high performance. I've tried using vsynch which had no negative effects towards FPS but it didn't exactly help either. I'm running Windows 8.1 64-bit. My buddy has the EXACT same processor and graphics chip as I do, and has less RAM yet he's able to achieve a stable 90-100 FPS. Is there anything I could do to prevent these terrible FPS dips?
