[SOLVED] Sudden overnight decrease in performance

I upgraded from a ryzen 5 2600 to a ryzen 7 3800x a few days ago and everything was going well until last night when I turned off my pc windows updated. Now my fps is substantially lower in game (Apex legends being the game I play).

I have tried preforming a system restore, as well as updating my gpu drivers, I have also tried restarting, resetting all the settings in bios, and disabling 'game mode'. I had also updated the Bios to the most recent drivers before upgrading the cpu.

The day I upgraded the cpu I did a benchmark using Passmark's performance test running the same benchmark now yields a distinctly lower cpu score by roughly 15-20%(was 24-25k is now 20-22k, although in game fps is closer to 60% lower (40 to 70 instead of 140+ on my 1440p 144hz monitor). All the other metrics measured by Passmark are the same as when I benchmarked the pc right after upgrading the cpu.

I have a Msi b450 gaming plus and an Rtx 2070.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi, Maybe try uninstalling the actual recent windows updates, had the same issue on my pc with a performance drop after the updates, i uninstalled them and all was ok. also possible you need a bios update

I'm pretty sure they got uninstalled when I did the image restore, I did a check for updates and let it reinstall them but I don't think anything changed while they weren't installed. I tried uninstalling them now and it keeps reinstalling them as I remove them (since it needs to restart), pausing updates makes it stop reinstalling them but now one of them says it cant be successfully uninstalled.

Is it possible to just do a fresh install of windows 10 with an 'old' version of windows 10, before these newest updates. Alternatively is it viable to just wait and see if they release new updates to fix this issue?

Try disabling windows update service before uninstalling again, not sure if that still works with the later win 10 builds tho

like others mentioned, you can do a clean install or just download and install latest version over the top as a Feature Update install. I would try that.
I downloaded the Windows 10 media creation tool and chose the option to have it reinstall windows 10 while keeping all my files and apps and it has fixed the problem.

Thank you so much 😀
