I have had the same frame drops. I usually am at 80-90 and every now and then they would drop to 20-30.
I fixed this by restarting the game. I had the game open for a long time, like 6 hours. That is when the problem started. After restarting it got much better.
Yes, I am seeing the same, going 80-100 fps, then dropping to 40 and then back to 70-80 fps and in general I feel stuttering, which makes playing not as fun as earlier. Running on HDD, but earlier I did not see this stuttering, so likely it is not to do with the disk.
Shouldn't be my setup:
Ryzen 7 2700X & 1070Ti.
Only slightly, but it's very random. As of right now, I can barely do just about anything, since the FPS drops to 10 and below every couple of seconds. Hopefully, they'll get around to it with a patch soon.
Running on ASUS X556UR

@benz you want a screen shot?
For what? People with 1080TI's don't get close to 120FPS with settings on high. I don't need some faked screenshot from you to prove some absurd and obvious lie. The game is CPU bound atm. even if you have 10 Titan X cards it won't run 1080p on high settings. So stop trolling.
@Max80 With that much beef what FPS do you get uncapped?
Our clan are original issue INS players, our systems are more typical of my specs. Not looking to spend major $ to play Sandstorm. We'd still like to give NW our $ but spending hundreds or more on upgrades to do so is right out.
