Synapse 3 unusable

since updating Synapse 3 about a couple or three weeks ago, it has become almost unusable. It takes ages to launch (when it actually does), takes ages to navigate between devices and modules, takes ages to switch between profiles, CPU is unusally high and does some patterned perfomance spikes when it used to be an almost flat line. Lagging everywhere, even the config menu doesn’t work smooth.


I  know Synapse has always had performance issues, but this is just too much. I can’t work or play properly. PC performance is ok when I kill all synapse processes.


I don’t know if this is related to some kind of windows update, conflict with GPU drivers or anything I have done without being aware.


Tried uninstalling and reinstalling virtually anything several times (synapse itself, drivers, software, peripherals, GPU, checked antivirus, firewall, NET framework...)


  • FYI: I use Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with Windows 11
  • Peripherals: Viper, Blackwidow v2, Nommo

Any light on this, new updates from razer in the imminent future, or even knowing that someone has the same issues would be of great help!
