Who wouldn’t love to have more FPS in the game? The more FPS you have, the smoother and more pleasant the game seems to play.
If you find that your game is lagging, or you want to increase the fluidity in your favorite game, you have come to the right page!
I have tried several methods to show you which ones really work in this article and for more information you must visit this site NSAIRA.
So I’m going to show you 9 tips that work (especially 6 and 7) to increase the number of FPS in any game.
1. Change the power profile
Power management mode allows Windows to influence the power consumption of your PC.
This is especially useful for laptops which sometimes need to reduce their power consumption when they are not plugged in, or to increase it when they are on the mains.
In any case, to ensure maximum performance: use the “High Performance” profile on Windows when you want to play.
If you have a stationary PC you can leave this option permanently checked. This will especially impact the frequency of the processor which will remain at its maximum frequency permanently.
To change the food profile, type in the search bar: “food”.
2. Make sure your CPU / GPU is not overheating
Running a game is a relatively demanding task for your machine. So if the cooling of the latter is not adequate, your CPU or GPU (or both!) May start to overheat.
In case of overheating, to avoid hardware damage, your CPU or GPU will slow down its operating frequency to give off less heat.
This is called thermal throttling: or dynamic frequency adjustment. This is something that is intended by the manufacturer of your CPU / GPU and there is no real way to prevent it (for the GPU anyway).
To know if your CPU / GPU is overheating, you must already know its temperature read more in depth about it.
For that I advise you to use the HWMonitor software, which allows you to have information on your PC .
Launch your favorite game and play for at least 30 minutes.
Return to the software and observe the maximum temperatures:
- For the CPU if it is below 100 ° C, then it has no thermal throttling. Otherwise, your CPU is overheating and you will need to do something to lower its temperature . However, for gaming your CPU should not exceed 80 ° C to ensure its longevity.
- For the GPU if the temperature is below 85 ° C then it has no thermal throttling. Above, you lose performance. Indeed, boost technologies at Nvidia and AMD have the limit of 85 ° C, beyond that, the GPU will start to lower its frequency gradually to 100 ° C or it will be at its base frequency.
3. Update your graphics card drivers
Graphics card drivers are used by computer programs and OS to communicate with the graphics card. Drivers are extremely important to ensure optimum performance in the game.
So I strongly recommend that you update your graphics card drivers regularly. Indeed, when a new major game comes out, Nvidia systematically launches “Game Ready Drivers” which are drivers optimized for the game in particular.
And the difference can be significant: it is not uncommon to gain 10 to 15% more performance with drivers that have matured and are optimized.
In addition, having up-to-date drivers improves the stability of the card and thus prevents crashes and GPU bugs.
To update your drivers you have two methods:
- From time to time you can go to the Nvidia site and download the drivers by hand.
- Otherwise you can use the GeForce Experience which allows you to automatically download the latest drivers for your graphics card
4. Remove unnecessary programs
When you buy a pre-assembled PC or a laptop it may come with software pre-installed on it.
Unfortunately, 99% of the time this software does not serve much purpose and in addition it slows down your PC!
The best way to start on a sound basis is to do a clean installation of Windows from a bootable USB key.
The downside is that you will have to reinstall the motherboard drivers which are essential for the proper functioning of the PC, but it is not too complicated to do either.
Otherwise you can remove unnecessary software one by one.
By removing these programs, you will free up resources (RAM and processor) from your PC allowing it to run your games better.
5. Close the greedy programs in the background
If you have a limited amount of RAM (i.e. 8GB and less) or you have a processor with few cores and threads (less than 6 cores and 1st threads), then you should pay attention to programs running in the background.
The amount of RAM has no influence on performance as long as there is enough. As soon as your PC runs out of RAM, there you will have significant performance problems: mini freezes and drops in FPS in the game.
So if you are limited in RAM, close non-essential applications when playing. I am thinking in particular of Chrome which tends to consume a lot of memory.
Finally, if you have an old processor with 4 cores (for example a 7700K) your processor will already have a lot of trouble running modern AAA games, if in addition it has to perform tasks in the background, you will still have slips. drastic FPS.
