My computer specs (laptop):
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2601 Mhz, 4 core(s), 8 Logical Processors
RAM: 8gb DDR4 SDRAM, 2133 MHz / PC4-17000
GPU: GTX 960m, Approx Total Mem: 8065 mb, Display and Shared Mem: 4055 mb
HDD/SSD: 1 TB Hdd, 250 gb Wd Green SDD.
Game is installed on SSD.
I deleted the appcache folder after each update.
In both cases everything is on low and off except dismemberment. Resolution is 1600x900 and FOV is 80.
Before the 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 I was able to play on all maps except Oilfield without any game breaking stutters and on Oilfield when I zoom in with 1.5 and bigger scopes I got fps drops to 15-20. In other maps I could get 60 70 fps without stutters. I was able to play.
After the 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 in Oilfield my stuttering extremely increased and I avoid the map. Unplayable on competitive levels. In other maps also I have fps ups and downs between 20-55. Unplayable for me on competitive levels.
Extra: I got a sound bug of rifle shooting constantly coming from far corners of the map. I didn't have it before the 1.1.4 hotfix.
It surprises me to see the optimisation for min specs got worse instead of widening the playable specs.
I hope this spec information helps you guys.
