Every so often, my framerate in Guild Wars 2 becomes locked to about 25 FPS. And I don't mean in zergs, I mean in places it would normally be 60+.
Usually, this seems to trigger when I adjust settings (particularly resolution, windowed/fullscreen or Vsync), but once in awhile it will happen without an apparent cause. I noticed via MSI Afterburner that when this happens, my video card has clocked its core down to 405 MHz (from 850 MHz). After this has happened, the only thing that seems to fix it is to quit the game and reboot my PC. I think a few times I've had to reinstall my video drivers to get it to stop, but generally rebooting works.
This has been happening for long enough that I've reinstalled Windows and updated my video drivers multiple times without the problem going away. It doesn't happen very often and until now I've ignored it, but its annoying enough at the moment to push me to make this post.
Core i5-750 at 3.8 GHz
8 GB RAM 1600 MHz
GTX 460 at 850/2000 MHz with Nvidia 331.93 drivers
Windows 7 64-bit
I'm just curious if anyone has any thoughts on this behavior. Thanks.
