PSA: WINDOWS INSIDER PREVIEW BREAKS THE GAME, DO NOT USE!!!
Just wanted to notify everyone I played this game since subscribing to the Windows Insider Preview and experienced unplayable performance degradation that felt like a memory leak. This occurs after about 5 minutes of gameplay which cripples game performance and induces unplayable stutter. Rolling back to previous Windows OS resolved the issue (for now).
Massive Stutter In Online Multiplayer
Was playing Halo 3 tonight and all of a sudden I had MASSIVE stutters and frame drops. Was never an issue before as I run a 3080 and 3700x but the game is chugging terribly. It doesn’t happen at first, so it almost seems like it’s a memory leak. I restarted the computer just to be sure it wasn’t an anomaly and sure enough it happened again.
The fps in the above video is not indicative of the frametime, the game is unplayable.
