Improving FPS


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I recently got back to DCS World and I have a new computer now. On my old computer, I was able to do medium high settings and get decent playability in both offline and online situation. Computer specs of that computer were as follows:

 

GTX 460 (1 GB)

8 GB Ram

Quadcore processor at 3.5 GHz

 

My new computer can do offline decently but when ever I go online it is just a stutter fest. The specs of the new computer (a laptop) is as follows:

 

GTX 750M (2 GB)

16 GB Ram

Eight core processor at 2.4 GHz

 

I think that my processor is the bottleneck but not sure. Any help for improving performance is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Eagle

Hi! :)

I also had mikro-stutter and corrected it so that I overclocked the processor/unlocked (only 0.5 step) and set the power-level to "full".

Thus, the cores were all set to the same level and were not fluctuate constantly on. (damn google translate) :P

The answer is ... 42! :captain:

Processor: Intel Core i7-7700K @ 4.5 MHz                              Motherboard: ASUS STRIX Z270F GAMING

Module: 32 GB Kingston DDR4 @ 2400                                           Video: GIGABYTE RTX 3080 EAGLE OC 10 GB

Monitor: SAMSUNG U28E590 @ 4K                                                  Other: HP Reverb G2 and some NVME drives

Yeah more cores is never the answer with DCS - speed is what you need .... Unfortunately 2.4 is woefully sleepy for this game

I just moved from a laptop with that video card to a tower desktop I built myself with a beefier video card and the difference is night and day. I went from max 30 fps to 90+ without vsync and a solid 60 fps with vsync on. Laptops by design compromise performance for portability, and DCS prefers less cores with higher clock speeds.

I just picked up 15-18 FPS by looking at my NVIDIA control panel settings for

Manage 3D Settings,

Multi Display /Mixed GPU acceleration

Changed to SINGLE from multi

 

Seems it defaulted to multiple monitor mode. Set it to single and you'll pick up a few.

I have played DCS on my sons Asus G73 ROG laptop with an i7 CPU @ 1.73GHz and a NV-460GTX-M 3GB and it beat my 2.4GHz i7 / NV 650GT-M 1GB in my MacBookPro retina.

 

It gained more fps in overall medium settings compared to a CPU almost 1GHz faster. Blame it on the slow 650 GT mobile, the CPU was not the limiter.

 

I had around 35-40 fps with the 1.73GHz vs. 25-30 fps on the MBP with lower settings.

 

Go figure, it's not as easy as it is sometimes told and sometimes a slower CPU in a better overall system can gain more fps than a slower one.

 

All above were at 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 res.. Win7-64 ult and 16GB RAM in each, SSD in the MBP and a raid-0 in the Asus. Even with a slower HDD setup DCS was faster on the 1.73...strange but true...

This has more than doubled my frame rate. Wow. Thank you very much for the help, I really appreciate that. Now, back on to relearning DCS aircraft for when I have time. Online play is so much smoother. Not perfect, but quite acceptable for what I desire. Thank you.

 

Cheers,

Turn Threaded Optimisation to OFF as well (Don't leave it set on AUTO) ;)
