What does Maximum Pre-rendered Frames do?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to look for good performance for GTA4 and I saw some stuff on the Nvidia control panel. How will Maximum Pre-rendered Frames affect gameplay? And I should I use it?

Just experiment with it to see how it affects GTA4 with your system. It would consume far less time than waiting for an answer from Overclock.net. ;)

 

Anyway, hover your mouse over this setting to see what NVIDIA says about it:

 

Quote:
Maximum pre-rendered frames limits the number of frames the CPU can prepare before the frames are processed by the GPU. Increasing this value can result in smoother gameplay at lower framerates
 
Typical usage sceanarios:
 
  • Reduce this value if you experience a delay in response to input devices such as a mouse, gamepad, or keyboard while playing games. [My comment: they're talking about mouse lag]
  • This feature only works for games using DirectX
