I downloaded the new W10 update a month or so ago, I noticed games started dropping as low as 4 fps when I would usually be getting a stable 60. After continual speak with the manufacturer of my computer, rolling back versions, updating drivers, I'm still suffering from bad drops? All be it no as bad ones. Has anyone else had this problem/found a fix? (I know it's not just the game because it happens on multiple) (And yes, my games are set to the optimal settings according to GeForce Experience)

Thanks!

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I'm new here and figures since it's an issue with the operating system it might go here?

Is anything overclocked on the PC?
Nope, completely stock Dell Inspiron 5680 desktop computer, it's the version with the disk tray and I am using two HP 27f monitors running at 60 herz refresh rate.

which Win10 build are you on now?

not knowing the specifics of what has already been tried - I assume you have tried the latest GeForce drivers from both Nvidia and Microsoft?

it's been more than a month, so rolling back to the previous build may no longer be an option, but see if it is.

and of course, keep in mind the 'nuke it from space' option if after so many hours of "try this, try that" you aren't any closer.
big hammer I know, and no guarantee of success but you at least know you're starting from a clean slate.

also, I'm not a gamer, so not really my area, that whole low FPS stuff. :)
