Why does my FPS suck?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Long story short I've maxed out the game Overwatch, I've turned down a few settings and still I cannot manage to get a solid 144 FPS. For exampl,e during match ending highlights sometimes my FPS would drop all the way down to 80-90 FPS thengoes back to a solid 122 FPS.

With my rig I should get more FPS, right?

TBH, if you are at the max preset. no. the game actually pulls a bit at the maxed out setting ( i think its called epic ) try dropping down to Ultra and see how your frame rates are. There is virtually no difference between ultra to epic.. Its mostly shadow details and its not noticeable.. but try ultra over epic and see how it does. also try doing a clean install of the latest nvidia drivers, that tends to fix alot of frame rate issues on new games. hope this helps.

Well first check CPU and GPU usage while playing. You might need a higher overclock on the CPU if the GPU isn't being maxed out. If it's the GPU than you would need to overclock it more, lower settings or buy something better.

I have a question. I'm playing battlefield 4 maxed out, I get around 90-120 FPS. Should I be lowering settings until I get a solid 144 FPS to match my HZ on monitor?

The 6/14 Overwatch patch destroyed performance. Many threads have maxed out on the Blizzard forums with people complaining about it. A couple Blizzard stickies in response:

Lets talk about any game. Should I bet matching my FPS with my 144hz refresh rate? I mean, game will look better with 140+ FPS and 144hz than 60 FPS but maxing game out? Or should I lower settings to get above 140 FPS for my monitor?

If the fps jumps too much from one end to another it can make for a rather rough experience, i wouldnt say you have to max it out at 144fps but i would try to keep it 100fps+ at all times or more for consistency. though i havent owned a 144hz panel so i cant say for sure, hopefully someone else who does own one can lend some better tips.

Check your temps while gaming to be sure you are not getting throttled.
You many need to OC your CPU to get a slight edge you can aim for 4.5Ghz
Adjusting your settings for a more smooth play to keep above 120fps and be sure your games are installed on SSD.

Ugh, I don't think anyone understand what I mean. I know I'm stupid about it too.


Don't I need to have the same FPS the same as my monitor refresh rate. For example, lets say I max out GTA 5 on Ultra I only get 60-80 FPS in game on a 144hz monitor. Do I need to lower my graphics to increase the FPS s it reaches closer to the 144 refresh rate monitor?

What would be the difference from 60-80 FPS on ULtra graphics on 144hz monitor vs 140+ FPS on lower graphics on 144hz?
