Causes and consequences of a frame drop
Frame drops can be caused by several factors including outdated graphics cards, processor, insufficient memory, malware and virus attacks, or even hard drive problems.
Frame drops lead to a non-smooth gaming experience: Actions take place much later than they were executed and movements jerk or stutter, which can prove to be a hindrance, especially in multiplayer games. So you can become a real tryharder at framedrops and you may have to flame around a lot.
