Dead by Daylight DX11 version cannot give a constant 120 fps and I tried the DX12 version ( launch settings -dx12 ) fps always drops to 30-40 when turning camera and it works much worse than DX11

I tried the new drivers with DX12 version and they work much better than before and i get 120 fps ( its locked to 120 default you cant change it ). However, there are some stuttering issues in certain areas.

Maybe I experienced stuttering issues because it was my first time entering those areas, I'm not sure. The stuttering issues resolve after a while.

Hello Hayrullah


Good to know the latest driver improves the performance of this game. I understand there were some stuttering issues that were resolved after a while as well. Do you believe this solves the issue or do you consider there are still problems with the game? Let us know to further assist.

Hello Hayrullah


What are the areas in which this issue is more noticeable? If possible share a short video showing this issue as we might need to try to replicate it.


If there is an area closer to the beginning of the game it would be better so we can speed up the process.

Hello Hayrullah


Thank you for the information and the videos you shared. I see that in order to unlock the 120fps mode in the game you have to modify the engine.ini file. We would like to know how the game work without this modification and how much fps you get without unlocking 120fps. Do you see the same issue?


In addition, could you check if enabling V-Sync makes any difference?

I did all the settings you said and and tried again it didn't matter for DX12. FPS still stutters fps drops especially when approaching an object with or without fps lock. Enabled V-sync no difference still stutters.

Hello Hayrullah


We are still working on this issue. Could you please share with us another short video showing the performance that you get without editing the engine.ini file or without unlocking the FPS on the game? We would like to have a point of comparison in case we need to replicate this issue.

@Hugo_Intel 

 

Are you guys still working on this? Because I can confirm it's still happening in the latest beta driver. 

I've completed all of the same steps above, and the game performs poorly using DX12 or DX11. The frame rate is super inconsistent, it will sit at 120fps comfortably at 1080p but then dip regularly into the 80s, 70s and even as low as 40s. To be clear, this isn't just 1% lows, these are long drawn out dips into low frame rates. 

Might be worth noting that the game ran perfectly with DX12 using Driver Version 4255 - Something in the following releases broke this game.
