FPS Problem

Post by Gen Stranger » Fri Jun 12, 2015 1:51 am

I was getting 125 fps and suddenly over the past few weeks it dropped to 35 to 45 fps
I tried new video driver and all I can think of to correct the problem.
I then ran across this on the web.

How to improve fps in games

Unlike a games console where developers optimise their games for a specific set of hardware, PCs come in all shapes and sizes. Some rely on a graphics chip that’s integrated into the main CPU, while others have blazing-fast PCI Express graphics cards.

No matter what you setup, here are some general tips on how to eke out extra fps (frames per second) from what you have. Of course, if you’ve just bought the latest shooter, MMORPG or racer and have found that it’s completely unplayable even after trying all these tricks, you may need to invest in better hardware.

However, here's what you can do without spending a single penny on new hardware.
1. Improve fps: Get the latest drivers for your graphics card

Running old drivers isn't a good idea if you want the best performance, but a surprising number of people fail to update to the latest versions. It's much easier these days (with certain brands, at least) since pop-up notifications tell you when a new driver is available.

First, find out which graphics card you have, and also check which version of Windows your PC is running. Head to Device Manager in the Control Panel and click on Display adapters. You'll see the name of your graphics card.

Improve fps - check graphics card

To find out the specific version of Windows, right-click on My Computer and choose Properties (or click on System in the Control Panel). This will tell you whether you have the 32- or 64-bit, as well as exactly which version of Windows is installed.

Then, head to the relevant website to get the latest drivers. This will be either Intel, Nvidia or AMD. Don't go to the card manufacturer's site, such as Asus, MSI, Gigabyte or Sapphire. Be sure to choose the correct model of card, and the appropriate operating system.

Once downloaded, install the drivers and reboot your PC if necessary. Depending on the game, you might get up to 30 percent better performance with just a driver update.


2. Improve fps: Optimise game settings

Updating drivers will get you only so far. The biggest gains in frames per second come from tweaking and compromising on graphics settings.

Ideally, you want to run your game at your monitor's native resolution. For most PCs that's 1920x1080; on a laptop it's likely to be 1366x768. To find out your monitor's resolution, right-click on the desktop in Windows 7 or 8 and click on Screen resolution. In earlier versions, click Properties instead.

The highest selectable resolution should tell you the native resolution, and should say 'recommended'. You can also search Google for your monitor's make and model if you're still unsure.

Lowering the resolution should give you more frames per second, but don't adjust the resolution here. Instead, load your chosen game and look for the graphics settings. Here you can change the resolution and many other settings.

Anti-aliasing is one setting to watch out for. AA smoothes out jagged lines, but incurs a performance penalty. Typically you'll see a slider, but it might be just a number, such as 2x, 4x 8x etc. First, try disabling AA altogether and see how your game plays. If it's fast enough, you can enable AA again at the lowest setting and progressively increase it until you find the best balance between quality and performance.

Improve fps - game settings

The same sentiment goes for most other graphics settings, including draw distance and shadows. Lighting effects, including shadows, tend to be real performance drains, so if you can live with basic effects, you can make the difference between a game being unplayable and playable.

Essentially, it's a process of trial and error. Unless, that is, your graphics card drivers can optimise each game's settings to work well using the hardware available. For example, the Nvidia card in our test PC has drivers which can do precisely that
After disabling anti_aliasing my fps jumped to 125 to 145
I do not know if I turned it on in the game or not but was happy to see it return to 125.

You can also try using an fps config. Here is yitch3 one of the best known but there are lots of others too.

I have since changed config and can toggle between 124 to 333
