First radeon card - need optimization tips.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I got first radeon in my life, can somebody help me with settings for fps games like quake?

Earlier I got only nvidia and got threaded optimization and vsync off. Now I can see that amd radeon settings are different - I found only vsync.

What are the settings I should change/look at for the smallest input lag? Any tips?

I got r7 260x (I know, old, but I wanted just try radeon, maybe I will buy something better soon).

Thank u all!

Use MSI Afterburner to overclock. Make sure to uncheck "Unlock Voltage Monitoring" and disable "ULPS" if you have CFX.

Also in Radeon Settings, check "Frame Pacing".

In games, I generally don't use vsync unless the game is not optimized for CFX. Also don't use any NVIDIA specific settings for gameworks.

My previous card was a 260x. I'm using a 1080p monitor and most of my games were in high settings at a stable 50-60+. I always use FXAA for my AA settings in games if possible. It doesn't hurt your framerates that much. Yeah, and don't use any NVIDIA specific settings (except for FXAA).

Set vsync OFF. You can cap the frames in the radeon settings. Assuming you have a 60hz monitor, cap to 60 frames or whatever highest number the monitor allows.
