Here's my experience of this issue. I've never connected to an online server. I always play Arma3 in coop play with small group of friends. I am always the host/server, server is run as internet server and 3-5 friends connect to me. I can nearly always play for about 1-2 hours before I experience the issue. I have i7 6700k OC at 4.6ghz 16GB Ram and GTX 1080. I'm normally running 50-70 fps and then suddenly (perhaps when zooming, like its struggling to read graphics data quick enough) the fps will drop to 3-5 fps. Now here's the thing, thinking this might be a graphics streaming issue, I wait to see if game recovers, and if I wait about 3-5 mins, the game does indeed recover and fps returns to normal, however this is only ever for a limited time and sure enough the problem re-appears in under 30 mins and this time is very unlikely to recover. I have had it recover once or twice after 2nd fps drop but usually by the 2nd time, I'm stuck with 3-5 fps and it never recovers. This has become so I cannot game in Arma3 ever for more than 2 hours without this issue happening. I've had this happen with and without mods but now I know there is a concerted effort to track and crush this bug I will report back with more detailed information the next time it happens.
