performance lag when running dayZ stress test
Need More Info, NormalPublic


in .62 fps i get around 50-100 fps with an average of about 70 fps where as im only getting 20-50 fps in .63, also my ram and cpu are running so high i get these performance lag spikes and am unable to look around and i freeze for a quick second. has made .63 pvp very hard to near impossible. ram usage seems to have doubled to the point that its maxing out as i only have 8 gig. i hope this doesnt carry over to the experemental or stable. my pc isnt the greatest but i could play the game no problem witout issues before and now its all janky on me. idk if thats cuz its in stress test faze but i dont plan on upgrading my system just for dayz when i could play it with ease before with a high fps.

I noticed similar problem for me on stress test #9. I have got only around 20 FPS on medium details - and gunfight was horrible for me I died 2 times like from 1 bullet. On poor I have got around 40 FPS and it was playable.
In overnight stress test #10 I have got better FPS,I was able to set it to LOW (with something disabled) and get average 45+ FPS. I mean that I have got similar good performance in stress test #10 and #7 but I mean that best performance (comparing #7 #9 #10) was #7 than #10, worst #9.

My specs:
CPU: Athlon II x4 645
GPU: GTX 1060 6GB
RAM: 8GB 1333 MHz (2x4GB)
Windows and DayZ on SSD.

Hello everyone and thank you for the reports.
Are you experiencing this issue in the windowed or fullscreen mode?

I play in fullscreen mode only.

I also only play fullscreen

I think my main issue is that I have 8 gigs of ram and it's using 7.57 gig, windows idles at 2 gig so my mouse just keeps freezing and I can only run forward u can't look around because I'm getting lag because my ram maxes out. .62 used less than 4 gig was so smooth to run please fix or let me know it its just part of the stress test having the ram usage so high
