Your rendering device has been lost
Hi there, i started to have this problem since a couple of weeks a go, when i am playing overwatch, sometimes the game freezes and a message says “Your rendering device has been lost”, so i must force to shut down the game, open again, try to play , but happens at the end again, i had the Nvidia drivers 372.54 (because i know about the error 43 with newest drivers), i am using a GTX 1060 3gb by miniPci port on my laptop, i try a lot of things that i read on internet for this error, disable firewall, disable antivirus, underclock my video card, play in window mode, force to have a constant voltage on the video card, limit fps to 60, and nothing is working, i dont use my video card with overclock..
The temperatures are under 55 C always for the EGPU, my CPU was always kind of a hot , like 88 degrees, but worked good always, i dont know if someone else have this problem, i search on blizzard forums and didnt find a solution, the only thing that i can do know is play with the nvidia gt650m that came inside of my laptop, so , i will appreciate any kind of help with this, thanks! Sorry for my bad english, greetings!

Problem solved!!! I decreased the power of my cpu in “power options”, minimum power “10 %”, maximum power “95%”, so i tried with this and it works!! Seems when my cpu hits more than 90 degrees the game crash. And now with a good cooling dock and lower cpu power it hits 60/70 degrees.
Thanks for the help!!!
90c is a lot. I’d swap thermal compound and get your fins cleaned with compressed air or wd.
Anyway, good workaround there. Anything lower than 100% max usage disables TURBO. Which decreases voltage quite a lot. Sort of a ghetto undervolt.
