READ ALL BEFORE RESPONDING PLEASE.

Yesterday, fortnite was fine. I then started to play today and now there are random latency lag and fps caps. I play at 60 fps but now it is capped at 30. I checked all settings and they say 60 fps cap. My latency yesterday was almost nothing, today it is over 1.5 sec.

NOTE: This is most likely not a hardware issue as fortnite worked fine yesterday.

Things I noticed: If I put it into windowed mode, the issues are still there but when I alt tab out of the fortnite window to desktop, the frame rate goes back up to 60. As soon as I click back to fortnite, fps drops to 30.

Also, sometimes this issue disappears for 5 sec then reappears.

Also, when I put windowed mode to 1680 1050, the issue is gone. But any resolution higher OR LOWER does not work. Fullscreem, windowed borderless, and windowed all have this issue except windowed with resolution 1680 1050.

This issue is not in any other games. I am not sure why only fortnite is doing this.
