Performance instability in online games after new CPU & Mobo upgrade.


Beta member
I recently had Geek Squad upgrade my PC with a new Motherboard, CPU, Ram. (x570 gaming edge wifi, ryzen 7 3800x) All drivers are up to date and fresh windows install. My computer stays connected to the internet fine. I am using an ethernet connection.

I Just had Comcast over this past week for an inspection and brand new modem, and they tell me everything looks fine. The internet speeds are at 550-600 mbps download, and 17-18 mbps upload. Every other device in my home works fine on this internet connection.

The problems come in online multiplayer games like Fortnite, Call of Duty, Apex, etc. I can play just fine for a few moments or couple minutes, then a few moments or couple minutes of lagging, and this cycle repeats. Some games have dedicated symbols for when its a connection issue which appears for me.

I played these same games before the upgrade and even though the FPS values were lower, the connection was stable and I could play without this issue.

CPU - Ryzen 7 3800x
GPU - gtx 1060
RAM - 16gb
Mobo - x570 gaming edge wifi
