TPS & Borderlands 2 Framerate Plummet

I was getting 60 FPS, or much higher if uncapped, in both games as recently as a few days ago.

Today I launched the games & I’m capped at 60 & usually run between 40 & mid 50’s even when framerate is uncapped, & when I interact with a vending machine the FPS drops to below 10 & stutters. Anyone else having a similar issue?

Drivers are updated.

i74770K 3.50 GHz
GTX 780Ti
32G DDR3 1866MHz RAM
ASUS Z87 Deluxe/Quad MOBO

Might want to try installing some older drivers, and make sure clean uninstall your current ones with a tool like DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller). Make sure you select “Clean and Restart” in DDU, otherwise you’ll likely blackscreen, since you’re on an NVidia GPU.

Is it just isolated to TPS?

I was having a similar issue for months and I only just figured it out: My system was severely overheating and my cpu was being throttled to 2ghz from 3 on startup. I had to reapply AS5 to my CPU and use a can of compressed air to clean out my case but once I did my temps plummeted and now I get an additional 40+ fps more in every game and average around 90 fps in TPS.
