    Massive Framerate and CPU spikes after January Update!


    After playing the game for about a month with 0 issues my game has started to stutter. Before January 7 the game had no spikes in Framerate as compared to the now. Unfortunately I did not check what the CPU was like before Jan 7 as well. However after a week of not playing( It is now Jan 12) I get back on and massive, quick framerate drops occurred with spikes in the CPU occurring at the same time!!
    I have tried lowering the settings but still the same issue of spikes in framerate and cpu occurred in all instances. Then I reinstalled my GPU driver (Nvidia 417.35) which had not been updated since it was working fine before hand. I currently suspect the January Update as that was the only change from the two times Ive played.
    Any help would be appreciated!!!!!!

    System: Alienware 17 R3
    Windows 10 Pro (10.0.17134 Build 17134) Intel i7- 6700HQ 4 Cores, 8 Logical Processors 16 GB RAM GeForce GTX 970M

    Hi Skyline247! I was able to look into your NFO file. Your computer meets the minimum requirements for ACOD, but not the recommended. You should be able to play the game @ 30 FPS on low presets. Please note the difference between laptop and desktop GPUs here.
    I noticed that you have 16 GB of RAM installed, but only 9.37 GB available. I strongly recommend running a memtest to ensure your RAM is functioning properly. I also recommend disabling extra background applications to lighten the load.
    I also noticed you have both integrated graphics and the NVIDIA card on your system. Please ensure your 970M is enabled as the dedicated GPU for your system.

    Let me know if this helps at all!
