Question Anyone know why Modern Warfare lags so hard?


Mar 29, 2018
I have a i7 7700k, GTX 1060 6GB, 16GB of 3000mhz ram. My wifi is not an issue since I do not lag on any game that I play besides ModernWarfare. I set the graphics to low, I set the CPU priority to normal and such, I turned off NVIDIA overlay. Nothing works, I still get a 2 second lag spike every 5-10 minutes. Is this game only optimized for 8th/9th gen CPUs? Does it only do good with the RX GPUs? Does anyone have specs that are way better than mine but they still get the lag spikes?(This would rule out that my hardware is not compatible)
Hi @crizonx

Here is an older post on Toms you may find interesting. Has almost the exact same issues and hardware as you.

The bottom of the post are other links to similar issues. As I do not currently have the newest MW, I'm unable to compare vs what hardware I currently have.

Let us know if the above link helps as others may have the same issues.
