CS GO dipping below 144fps...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I play CS GO somewhat seriously... not hardcore competitively, but I am wanting to get my account back up to at least LE. That said, I'm occasionally seeing my frame-rate drop below 144 fps (mostly when several players are on screen and smokes are down), causing some mild jitter/stutter as my refresh is set to 144hz.. Now if I played for purely competitive reasons, I'd drop my settings down further - but I'm also wanting to have an aesthetically pleasing experience..

My system specs are below and my in-game settings are:
1600x1200 (4:3 stretched)
Global Shadow Quality: Low
Model/Texture Detail: High
Effect Detail: Low
Shader Detail: Low
Anti-Aliasing: 2x
Texture Filtering: 16x
FXAA Anti-Aliasing: Disabled

Any suggestions on what to change? I would have figured my system could handle those settings and keep a consistent 144+ framerate, but the dips are getting to me... Do you guys think it's a CPU or GPU issue? Would overclocking my CPU help? I've got it at stock but clearly have the cooling to push it if that's what I need to do...

Yes you will gain quite a bit by overclocking that cpu to 4.5ghz, and your 144hz monitor will love it biggrin.gif. You should be getting 300+ fps easy with your config with no drops.

Do you happen to have windows 10 and recently updated to the anniversary update?

if you get 2133MHz ram you would get a slighly performance boost,also unpark cpu cores and try

also disable CF if you play the game

Nah - I've stuck to 64 bit Windows 7 Pro... all the BS with Microsoft trying to force Windows 10 down people's throats has really turned me off.. . Only reason I'd want to upgrade is DX12, but isn't the Vulkan API just as good and independent of OS?

But shouldn't that already be the case even with my CPU at stock? Or do you think that's whats bottlenecking me and causing the occasional fps droops?

Is this what you mean by unparking cores?

I might give that a go... As for the timer thing, I'm not quite sure what that does and the guy doesn't really explain it too well? I might try that if unparking/overclocking doesn't yield the results I want thumb.gif

How would disabling CF help? I thought CS GO was pretty well optimized for dual GPU setups?

yes but there are more DX12 games than Vulkan in the market at the moment but then Win 10 can use both,

a Stock Haswell CPU can do a good job but in Games like CS GO limited to few cores/threads whenever you OC the CPU your game will be smoother but this cna caused by power saving like Core parked or ulps if you use mgpu

yes that is the unparking tool
also windows timer resolution cna affect cpu performance in games

and ,mgpu usually on CS GO can cause stuttering, maybe if it used SFR+DX12 it would be different

you can compare SIngle GPU and CF with Fraps and record frametime and then download the graphic tool to show details from Frap logs

also getting a freesync monitor can be a good choice if you want to get synchronized fps without vsync delays
