Random FPS drops in Dying Light
PopeRigby 2 Dec, 2019

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.

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

Background processes or overheating, maybe...

System specs,Desktop environment,what runs in background...
Anyway,try even with dxvk or steam play; it is said to perform better.

System specs:

Things running in the background:

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?
