FPS drops since IO's patch, 60 to 40 or less

  • Hi, I've been playing Paladins for two years and had never had a fps problem. Since the IO patch I have noticed that my fps fall from 60 to 40 or less, being very annoying. I've tried to put everything to a minimum but they still come down. I have updated all the drivers but keep it up, I have an nvidia 960. It is very frustrating to play like that, and more when I don't understand what may be causing this problem. I repeat, it's happening to me from the IO patch, I've never had problems with fps before.

    I would appreciate it if you could help me.

  • FWIW, I get a FPS increase by killing a specific Steam thread called "Steam_TerminateGameConnection" using Sysinternals Process Explorer which, unfortunately, I have to do every time Steam launches. I have no idea what that thread does since it's always busy and killing it doesn't seem to affect anything. If I had to guess, I'd guess Valve is using all our machines to mine crypto currency.

    Screenshot attached.

    Kill steamclient.dll!Steam_TerminateGameConnection
