Random FPS drops in Dying Light
PopeRigby commented on 2 December 2019 at 9:10 am UTC

Every once in a while, I'll get some FPS drops in Dying light. They go away a few seconds after it starts happening and the trigger seems to be arbitrary.

Out of VRAM?

That seems pretty unlikely. I have 6GB of it.

Background processes or overheating, maybe...
You've to tell us a bit more.

Desktop environment: KDE Plasma

Things running in the background:

Those are the main things.

I'm running archlinux+plasma as well and I did not observed any slowdown, running on an i5+gtx1050ti, but i use the windows version via Proton; it even runs with less lag than the Linux build for me.
You may want to give it a try.

I tried doing that before. Same issue unfortunately.

So, the question: Does this happen with other games too?
