Detailed description:
Hey Guys, I've been playing Total war since Medieval 2 total war. But in Rome 2 and Attila i have experienced low fps on the campaign map while pulling good fps while in battle. And ALSO this time i get bad fps on the campaign map 14-25 fps on the lowest settings. what could be wrong? I mean, I know my rig isn't brand spanking new, but atleast it should be able to pull atleast 40 fps in a game like this i reckon.
Drivers are up to date, resoltion change didn't change much, only a couple of frames but looks horrible.

My specs are as following:

Motherboard: MSI Big Bang Xpower ii
GFX: Nvidia GTX 780 Asus DirectCU ii
CPU: I7-4820k
Ram:Corsair Vengance 16 GB 1600MHz
OS: Windows 10 x64

If anyone has a fix, i am willing to try anything. I love the total war series but buying these titles for 60 Euro and then not being able to play on a decent framerate even when on Low settings is definately not okay.

DxDiag:
See attached file.

    Have you tried rolling back to an earlier driver. That seems to have worked for some people.

    I have not tried rolling back to an earlier driver. but how should that help since this is a problem that has been with this pc, both while running win7 and formatted to win10. I have had bad fps on the campaign map since Rome 2 was released.

    Several people who have not previously had fps issues are now getting them with the latest Nvidia driver, even though there has been a lot of improvement in game optimisation, and rolling back has resolved the matter in some cases. Obviously there may be other underlying issues, but it's easier to deal with one thing at a time.

    I have an older system and use Razer Cortex Game Booster for some newer games like this. Here in TW:Warhammer I get 30fps normally by using the Razer Cortex software that gets boosted to a steady 70fps, it may not be of use to you but i thought I'd mention it.

    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
    GFX: Nvidia GTX 650Ti Boost 2Gb
    CPU: AMD FX-8120 Black Edition 3.1Ghz(overclocked to 3.8Ghz)
    Ram:Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600MHz
    OS: Windows 10 x64

    Okay, so i rolled back the driver and didn't notice any difference. Will try the Razer Cortex Game Booster now. What does it do? Is it an overclocking software?

    When Boost is activated, Razer Cortex suspends processes that your PC doesn’t need to use while in the game, freeing up memory and CPU power which results in less laggy gameplay and improved frames per second, as soon as you're done playing the game Boost deactivates and starts up the processes that were running before.

    Well that seemed to help, haven't checked which processes it shuts down yet but now i get 44 fps on campaign map on medium settings while static and around 35-38 when panning the camera around. Still, i am a bit dissapointed that i have to use 3rd party programs like that to get decent performance when i am pulling around 100 fps in battlefield 4( i know it's an old game now) on high/ultra settings.
