Figured out what causes fps drops and stuttering issues

Recommended Posts

  • A detailed description of the issue.

So it turns out unplugging my headset cures the 50% drop in frames and the constant, consistent stream of freezes and stutters and screen tears. How one has to do with the other, I don't know! But that's what it is.

Trying to find enjoyment in this undeserved eternal purgatory of a game, I went for a nightmarish drive riddled with hang ups and low frame rates. I needed to hear the doorbell ring so I went at it without my headset, since I'll never be able to do a race with the game in its current state and therefore have no need to use the voice commands. 

The game ran butter smooth. 

So I paused my session and plugged my Razer headset back in and sure enough, I was launched back into the pits of fps hell. Unplugged the headset while out on track, and a few moments later the world returned to a happy place. Plugged it back in, and immediately crashed into a wall that was frozen on my screen for several seconds. 

  • Any screenshots or video of the issue? Remember to add as unlisted if video via a third party. 

This game can't even handle a headset being plugged in, let alone video recording or a screenshot. 

  • How do you make the problem happen? Please add a step-by-step guide here so we can replicate and get reported as quick as possible.

Refer to the troubleshooting section. Thank you.
