Weird FPS drop in cod4x 20.5 client version

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I encountered this strange issue that I never faced before. The issue is whenever I move my mouse my FPS starts to fluctuate between 150-160 and drops from 250 (causing micro stutters during strafes/long jumps). However, this only happens when using a mouse whereas keyboard input doesn't produce any FPS drop. I googled the issue which stated to reduce your mouse polling rate from 1000Hz to 125Hz which fixed this issue. But I'm very curious that I was playing at a 1000Hz polling rate the whole time and never encountered this issue. Is it because of the recent 20.5 client update or if someone knows about it then kindly do share the information?

Thanks

without knowing if there were changes to the cod4x client, i'll let you know that this is an issue with many games.

Thanks for the information.
 

I never had such issues, this only happens in cod4x with a 1000Hz mouse polling rate. I play Apex Legends, CSGO, Valorant, and no issues in them with a 1000Hz mouse polling rate. It just suddenly started when the cod4x20.x updates came.

In the beginning, I was very annoyed by these micro stutters. One day I closed the steam client and then launched cod4x and the issue was gone but the next day it was the same even without steam running in the background.

Controls settings.

@Fraggy Thank you for your kind help. My issue is resolved now. The raw mouse input was disabled by default which was causing micro stutters when employing 1000Hz mouse polling rate, enabling raw mouse input fixed this issue. Again, thank you so much.

That seem to be weird. Because the RAW mouseinput is something new and I was believing it would cause it.
