10 tips to get more FPS and better performance on your gaming P . to get

(Pocket Ribbon) – So you’ve got a shiny new gaming PC or you’ve managed to get your hands on a new graphics card, but you know how to make the most of it?

By default, your slot machine may not provide as much performance as you would expect.

Aside from installing the latest graphics drivers, there are some surprisingly simple things you can do to improve your frames per second in-game and overall performance.

Follow this guide for some simple tips on settings you can change within Windows 10 and relevant software to tweak your performance and get a nice boost.

1. Enable Game Mode

Windows Game Mode is one of the easiest things you can do to improve settings. Telling Windows you’re a gamer and getting the operating system to optimize performance for you is one.

You’ll need the latest version of Windows 10 (or Windows 11) for this setup, but otherwise it’s dead simple to enable Game Mode.

Follow these steps to enable game mode:

Press the Start button on your keyboard and type GameClick Game Mode Settings when it appears at the top of the Start menu Click the button to enable Game Mode


2. Enable hardware accelerated GPU scheduling

With the right equipment (for example, a new GPU and Windows 10/11), you can enable hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling to reduce latency and improve performance. This is supported by both AMD and Nvidia GPUs and gives you another way to boost performance.

There are two parts to this setting adjustment, but they are easy to do. In this case, we’re using Nvidia graphics, but similar steps are available for AMD:

Press the Start button and look for Graphics Settings. Then click to enable Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling. Scroll down and see the “Graphics Performance Preference” settings. From there you can choose the app to set your preference. For Nvidia, this is the Nvidia Control Panel. You can select this as a desktop app or Microsoft Store app from the drop-down menuClick the app, click options and select high performanceRepeat for each game where you want maximum performancepocket ribbon

3. Change your power settings

Windows naturally tries to minimize your power consumption, whether you’re gaming on a desktop or on a powerful gaming laptop. This is of course useful if you want to keep your energy bill low, but it can keep you from maximum FPS and full enjoyment of your slot machine.

However, it’s easy enough to customize:

Press the Start button and type PowerClick on Power & Sleep settings. Click on additional power settings on the right side of the window that appears, select either high performance or ultimate performance there to make sure you have enough power for your gamepocket ribbon

4. Enable G-Sync

If you have a G-Sync compatible gaming monitor, it’s worth checking that G-Sync is set up correctly. While this won’t necessarily give you a performance boost, it will improve your overall experience by giving you smoother and more eye-pleasing visuals.

To do this, right-click on the desktop, open the Nvidia Control Panel and find “Setup G-Sync” in the menu on the left. From there, you can choose to enable G-Sync if it isn’t already enabled.

5. Make sure you are using the correct refresh rate

If you’re trying to maximize your FPS, chances are you have a good gaming monitor with a fast refresh rate. But just connecting one of these monitors is not enough to give you the best performance.

Windows does not always use the maximum refresh rate by default. So this is another setting that you need to change manually.

There are two ways to do this, the first is through the Windows display settings:

Right click on your desktop and click on display settings. Scroll down until you see “advanced display settings”. Then scroll down to view the refresh rate and click the drop-down. From there, select the maximum refresh rate of your monitor.

You can also use Nvidia’s control panel:

Right click on your desktop and click on the Nvidia Control Panel. Under “display” find the option for “change resolution” From there click on the refresh rate dropdown and select the highest possible setting.pocket ribbon

6. Enable Ultra-Low Latency Mode

Ideally, for the best performance, the games you play should support Nvidia Reflex, but it’s also possible to boost your system and reduce latency with Nvidia’s Ultra-Low Latency Mode.

This setting can be accessed from the Nvidia Control Panel:

Right click on your desktop and click on Nvidia Control Panel. Navigate on the left to manage 3D settings Scroll down through General Settings and find “Low Latency Mode” – then select Ultra from the drop-down list

While you’re here, it also pays to tell the control panel that it also favors maximum performance. Scroll down a little further and search for “power management mode” and select “prefer maximum performance” from the drop-down list.

7. Optimize games with GeForce Experience

If you’re using an Nvidia graphics card, it’s worth it Download GeForce Experience if you haven’t installed it yet.

Not only does this tool give you access to simple driver downloads and the ability to capture game footage with Nvidia Shadowplay and Anselbut you can also optimize performance in several ways.

Open GeForce experience and you have the option to scan your system for games and then click to optimize all games. You can also access these settings by clicking the gear and then clicking to automatically optimize newly added games.

8. Experimental Features and Tuning

Within Nvidia GeForce Experience, click on the settings gear and click on the general settings. There you will see an option to ‘enable experimental features’. Check that and you can access various settings by pressing ALT + Z.

With the overlay option, you’ll find a button on the right marked “performance”, click it and you’ll then access a sidebar with various performance monitoring settings.

About halfway through, you’ll also find a setting marked “turn on auto-tuning”. If you check this, Nvidia GeForce Experience can automatically overclock your graphics card to get even more performance out of it with just a few clicks. Click to activate it, accept the warning and wait for the scan results.

Another option here is to display a basic, advanced, or latency performance overlay on your screen. This allows you to see the fruits of your efforts by checking all the different buttons to adjust the settings.

The latency portion of this performance monitor is more useful when using Nvidia Reflex, but the Basic and Advanced will be useful for keeping an eye on your system while you’re gaming to make sure you’re getting the FPS you want. should have.

9. Activate DLSS and Nvidia Reflex

There are a number of extra settings that you can activate with certain games. These include Nvidia Reflex, which is designed to minimize latency, and DLSS, which uses AI to improve FPS in smart ways.

Unfortunately, only a few games currently support these settings, but the number is increasing regularly.

Deep Learning Super Sampling (aka DLSS) is the more useful of these two settings when it comes to improving your FPS. This takes the pressure off your graphics card by using AI to upscale the image – meaning the graphics card may initially display a low quality image.

This is similar to playing your game at 1080p instead of 4K, even if you have a 4K screen but then use DLSS to upscale the image to 4K so you still see a 4K image but with the frames per second you would get with 1080p. Or at least near the anwyay.

If the game supports it, the DLSS settings will usually include performance, balanced, and quality modes. Quality gives the best looking images while performance gives maximum FPS but may not look as good.

Nvidia has recently improved DLSS and is constantly working to make it even better and help developers roll it out to more games as well.

10. Activate AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

If you don’t have an Nvidia graphics card but use AMD, that’s no problem. AMD has a system called AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution. This is similar to Nvidia’s deep learning super sampling (DLSS) and is supported by a number of games.

You can see the… list of supported games here and that list keeps growing.
