    I've been having this very odd issue with my games lately. When I first turn my computer on and boot up a game, the framerate will be perfectly fine and the game will run smoothly. If I quit the game and open another game my framerate plummets. The issue will keep happening until I restart my computer. I've done scans with Malwarebytes, Avast, and SpyBot but they come up with nothing, and all my drivers are updated.


    Before Restart


    After Restart



    It's getting really annoying having to restart the computer every time I want to play a different game or re-open one. Hoping anyone can help me get this sorted out.

    Possibly something to do with the temperature, check temps

    The graphics and motherboard temps never go above 50C and the cpu never goes above 40C, and that's after having the game open for about half an hour.

    Have you made sure that the graphics card does not underclock itself?

    Just checked with the nvidia control panel and and it isn't underclocked. Says it's still using the factory shipped frequencies.
