Default Re: Should FPS always be stable?

Can new drivers sound, display or chipset (I did change from 61.36 to 61.77) cause a loss in FPS? The game is still very playable, don't get me wrong, I can't even notice a difference but just the fact that those 2 and a half frames have just disappeared is quite weird, especially seeing as system restore never brought them back.

I'll shut down my PC tonight like I do everynight and see if maybe all it takes is a rest to cool-down that can return those 3 frames.
