F1 2017 PC FPS drops

RyonDijkstraRyonDijkstra Member New Car Smell
Hi everyone,

After getting the game today, I have noticed that i get fps drops every 10-20 minutes or so. The rest of the time i have a steady 60-70 fps, but sometimes it just drops to unplayable rates. After some 20 seconds, the fps rises again to normal. Does anyone have an idea what might cause this? I had no trouble with this problem whatsoever running f1 2016 on high settings.

My PC specs:
AMD Athlon x4 860k cpu
AMD R9 380 gpu
8gb ram

    What game mode are you using?

     Last years frame drops were using the custom career driver avatars in online MP mode.
    I noticed a framerate drop immediately before a crash in MP as we went to qualifying loading the lobby into the session.

    It's been a bit stuttery in game tonight when we restarted a full lobby (well 19) so much so the game became a bit laggy on input as well.

    I haven't updated to the Game Ready driver release yet, but you are AMD and the AMD players seemed not to be suffering as much as Nvidia players.

    It was in career mode actually, haven't played online yet. So I don't think it has anything to do with my connection, or could it? Maybe they'll get it patched soon.

    My PC spec:
    - Intel i5-7300HQ
    - nVidia GTX 1050
    - RAM 4GB

    The problem is, FPS keeps droping lower than 60 FPS . Sometimes it can be until only 1FPS and then the game crashed again and again . Even with latest GPU driver, 1248-1050 Resolution with low quality and graphic cards had been set for performance but the game keeps stuttering . There is no problem while I run GTA V or FIFA 15. Please help . I cannot play the game because it keeps stuttering. Wanna cry .

    Hi, i have the same problem. I have higher pc specs but nothing changes. 
    I "solved" (it's not a solution it's just a workaround). Try to set VSync = 2 in graphic settings menu. It blocks Fps to 30 and don't stutter anymore. Yes, we loose kind of sense of speed but al least we don't have to put the game in the junk.

    Hope in a patch to solve the problem.
