Yesterday I updated to the new Nvidia drivers and ever since my 3080 is pushing 80c (target is set to 80) and only delivering 80-100FPS in titles like OW, titles it usually maxes out with out breaking the mid 60s.
  • Can a new nvidia driver cause this or is something else going on?
    • Nothing has been overclocked.
GPU idles at 27-35C, second I open a game it's maxed out at 80c and can't even break 100ish FPS in several low demand titles. CPU doesn't even break 55c while the GPU is struggling @80c.

Things I've tried since post:
  1. Reinstalled OW
  2. Went in to BIOS, found out the RAM was running at 2133 instead of 3600, so I corrected that. I'm assuming it changed when I updated BIOS.
  3. Redid GPU drivers
