My system specs:
Gtx 1070, ryzen 5 2600x, 8 gb of ddr4 and the game is installed on an ssd.
This game runs between 115 and 75 fps (on the highest graphical settings) in most situations with the one huge exception being during hordes. During hordes, no matter who is hosting, my fps regularly drops between 60 and 55 fps. This would be fine if the drops are being caused by heavy cpu and gpu loads, but during these hordes I regularly see drops in my resource usage, with the gpu steady at 85% and the cpu at 50-60 while also seeing drops in fps.
What could be causing this? Even dropping down to low settings I see fps as low as 60 during hordes, with resources below 100%.
Ram usage is only around 6 gb.
Tldr: I have a moderately powerful pc, but reliably 60 fps during hordes no matter what graphical setting and without maximum resource usage.
