    Low framerate no matter what I do

    i9-11900K
    Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti
    G.Skill 32 GB 3600 MHz Cl14 dual-rank DDR4
    Windows 10

    My framerates are lower than they should be. Way lower. My GPU usage is not going above 48% and my CPU usage not above 21%...even with just medium-ish graphics and 0 AI, I can barely crack 100 fps at 2560 x 1440. Normally, I get around 130 fps with everything on ultra + around 20 A.I...

    Is this some sort of recent driver bug? I'm using the most current GeForce drivers, v512.95

    I set rendered frames back to 2 from 1, did the same in the Nvidia control panel. Set power management mode to optimal power from prefer max performance. Played with in-game graphics settings. Ran the game with "disable fullscreen optimizations" and compatibility mode set to Windows 8. Nothing has made any difference. CPU and especially GPU usage remain incredibly low.

    there was a driver release yesterday (516.40), so try them and if they don't help, try rolling the drivers back and see if that does.

    Ryzen R7 3800X - Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite - 16Gig DDR4 (Ballistix Elite 3600) - ZOTAC GTX1080Ti FE with EVGA Hybrid Cooler - iiiyama ProLite B2783QSU - Oculus Rift CV1 - Samsung 860 250G SSD, WD 6T Black, WD 2T Black, OCZ 120G Vertex 2 SSD, LiteOn iHAS122 DVD-RW - Creative 5.1 speaker system - Logitech G19 - Gigabyte GM-M6880X Gaming Mouse - Fanatec CSL Elite + Formula V2 + CSP V3 + SSH Shifter - Windows 10 Pro (64 bit).

    Second machine used for additional testing. Ryzen R5 3600X - Asus Prime X570-P - 32G DDR4 (Crucial Ballistix 3200) - EVGA RTX2060 - iiyama Prolite E2607WS - Oculus Rift CV1 - W10 Pro (64 bit) - xbox360 pad or Logitech DFP (all at stock speeds)

    HTPC - For testing of Steam Big Picture Mode (Hopefully from Media Portal 2) - i5-4590S - ASUS H81M-C - 8G DDR3 PC-10666 - Gigabyte GTX1050Ti - Windows 10 Home (64 bit) - xbox360 pad

    I re-installed Windows and framerates are back to normal using the same driver as previous (v512.95): around 330 fps alone and around 170 fps at the start on a grid of 26 cars in the rain and then up to around 220 fps by the time they all reach turn 1. I couldn't even crack 80 fps in the rain with 26 cars before.

    No idea if I just had to reinstall my the GPU driver (just installed it a few days ago, and I always use DDU to uninstall the previous) or if it was something messed in Windows itself but everything's back to normal.

    What's really weird is that I'm pretty sure all other games were fine.
