I’ve played approx. 6 hours yesterday and only ran into 2 of the freezes, both lasting about 2 seconds. I was getting these same freezes every few minutes before. My overall fps is higher as well but not by much.
Windows 10 is kind of weird. I noticed that if you turn off Windows Defender’s realtime protection and it’s firewall portion that it actually increases the CPU usage of Windows services (svchost, etc.). Seems counterintuitive but I’d leave those running for the best performance.
