I play a lot of Rainbow Six Siege. I have never had any issues whatsoever. As of the last couple days I have gotten a few hard freezes, where fraps drops from 100 down to ~3fps and sound goes away completely. The game never crashes, just freezes there. It does this at random times, I have had it happen on main menu after booting it, and in the middle of games. Sometimes I can play 20+ games in a row and its fine, and then the next day it freezes in loading. Initial response was to reinstall, and this helped for maybe 2 days. Then the issue returned. ( I associated this with the most recent update which had come 2 days before, and I am still not certain this isn't the issue)
I cannot use these as a constant as I just got the game(s) for free but The Crew did the same thing to me after probably 20 minutes of play. Yet Deus Ex:Mankind Divided never froze and I played it for 6+ hours straight (This was the most graphically demanding of the 3 and I had my 1080 pegged the whole time)
So basically I want to think that my issues are patch related, however I have never had a game crash on me and The Crew crashing gave me doubts. Now I am wondering if it might be SSD related as that is where I store all my games.
I know it isn't a lot to go on but if anyone has some ideas I would appreciate it, and give them a try.
