This update completely destroyed my framerate. I can't play like this.


Recommended Posts

Literally three hours ago I was running around the Plains with my framerate sitting very comfortably at 60 FPS (with every option MAXED OUT). Now I can't go past 40 fps during heavy fights. I don't know what exactly why (new particles? Antialiasing?) all I know is that I can't play like this. I also tried lowering lots of settings but nothing changed.

I know this might not be that big of a deal for someone, but I personally can't play a fast game like Warframe if I can't reach at least 60 fps. I guess I'll take a break from the game, at least for a while. I'll be sure to check the forums from time to time to see if anything changes. I hope the new renderer they've been working on will fix this mess.

have you checked if directX 10 and/or 11 are turned on in the launcher?

I had a similar issue, my frames were stuck at 40ish fps. then i checked the launcher and noticed those 2 were unchecked, after that it went back to normal.

hope this helps

Yeah, I checked that out and those settings are on.

There has been undoubtedly a change that's making things wonky. I have hiccups on my end as of the latest update as well.

This is what I found in the official changelog:

  • Made some micro-optimizations to numerous beam effects (weapons, Shield Auras, etc).
  • Made a micro-optimization to drawing certain types of lights.
  • Made some micro-optimizations to particle systems and cloth simulation.
  • Made several TAA improvements: fixed blurring under motion, much higher quality, and much sharper results!

Well... Those "micro" optimizations gave me this:


and this


I used to have 60 FPS in those areas. And during fights it's even worse

Verify and optimize download cache

I've already done that, another user suggested the same thing. I've also wiped and reinstalled my video drivers, just to be sure. No success.

Looking at my GPU usage percentage it looks like the game is just "heavier" to run.

Well, I guess the issue is since Panic Button was doing some optimizations for the Switch that affected performance in all systems, DE will now need to properly optimize said changes and check that everything is smooth. As I said in my case it's hiccups more than actual frame drops -- I'll have a spike here and there where the game kind of loses performance before recovering.

It's usual with large updates such as this. But I trust that next week we'll see things start to return to smooth as butter.

I noticed weird stuttering after this update as well. Even though my framerate stays constant at 72, the game doesn't feel and look at all like it's running at that framerate. It feels like there's some frameskipping here and there. Which is really annoying to play with.

Having the same issue. What kinda helped me is lowering the new ‘intensity’ setting. After the update it’s preset to 100, during that my FR was terrible, when I set it to 0 everything sorta went back to normal. I still get low FR but that’s prob from my craptop and vpn use

My hardware:

  • GeForce GTX 560
  • i7 2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • 8GB Ram

Old Graphic Card so I guess something got changed in the new update... I am now stuck at 7fps with LOW setting... Basically, game is unplayable.
