Hello guys, I have an Asus G74SX-A2. My nVidia driver is: 306.97.
So the issue i'm having lately is huge FPS drops in lot of games. For example, in Sleeping Dogs i have an FPS of 55~ and i get drops to around 15. I know that FPS fluctuates but drops in about 40 FPS of difference must be because of something. This has also happened in Assassins Creed 3 and several other games. If you need any more information to help me solve my problem don't hesitate to ask! Thank you very much

If you have an Atheros WiFi card, the high DPC Latency of Atheros driver versions prior to 9.2.1.432 could result in several types of performance hits. See http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?5126-Any-Kind-of-Lag-and-Atheros-WiFi-Card. Download and install the more recent Atheros driver version 9.2.1.470 if this is the case.

CPU Throttling could also play a role in your issue. See http://forum.techinferno.com/throttlestop-realtemp-discussion/23-throttlestop-guide.html.

I'm using an USB WiFi card and have the internal one disabled. The one i'm using is an Alfa AWUS 036H

Any other suggestions?

1) As I suggested previously - ThrottleStop - CPU Throttling could certainly cause the FPS drops you report.

2) You could run DPC Latency Checker to see if any drivers on your system are contributing to DPC Latency.

3) Consider UNchecking any unnecessary processes in the "Startup" tab of MSCONFIG so they are not loaded at startup.

4) I'm assuming you are plugged in and on High Performance power profile when you are playing these games. Is that an incorrect assumption?

To 4) yes, i'm doing that. But why am i the only one suffering this then? Shouldn't everyone with the same laptop be experiencing the same?
To 3) I've already did that.
to 1 & 2) I do not know how to do that :/
