I get constant fps drops in my games and overall performance in my computer has heavily degraded since purchase. I do not know why this is happening, any questions i will answer. In read dead redeption 2, where my computer should be able to handle it easily in balanced or performance mode, I get fps drops constantly and it will not stop. I have tried many solutions to fix it but I cant seem to find a solution.

I have a GTX 1660 ti and an intel i7 9th gen, its also a gaming computer
16gbs of ram
256 gbs of ssd boot
2 tb of hdd

You're welcome. (y)
It helped in red dead redemption 2 but in mount and blade 2 bannerlord, i am still having a problem because it stutters like every 5 seconds, maybe physX is causing it because its using cpu instead of gpu?

Good to hear it helped somewhat. Hopefully Microsoft will keep working on the problem and release more 'fixes' before long.

Not sure why the other is still stuttering though. It could well be because it is using the CPU instead of the GPU like you mentioned. It could also be due to something else entirely of course.

You might try performing a Clean Boot. If the problem disappears you can keep it this way or, you can add one Startup item and/or Service at a time until the problem reappears. If and when it does you would then know the culprit.

I did more testing and in red dead its still stuttering, even in a clean boot, i had this problem, which makes this even weirder, i have no idea whats causing this, it might be hardware, though i havent really done much. 2 things happened since i bought the computer. 1, the cpu fan broke beause of hair and dust and i had to get a replacement. 2, the hdd broke so i had to get a replacement, Idk why this happened too. I'll use the software here to get my exact specs

so it seems performance has just lowered overall, on low settings, red dead 2 plays smoothly, though it should be doing much better on higher settings with a gtx 1660ti

You think it’s hardware? I don’t think it should be doing that but i can’t seem to find a software problem, a big example of this is half life alyx. in 2020 i was able to play it on high settings smoothly, now, it stutters a ton

If it's booted up in the Clean Boot mode, that's as good as as it's going to get with Windows on that hardware. Microsoft is still working on the problem, trying desperately to balance between keeping everyone from getting infected with malware without severely effecting the computer's performance . . . especially for gamers.
