How to achieve 140+fps on low-middle cards?

What do you have to turn down, to get an entry 2060 or Vega 64 to run 1440p and 144fps (for a 144Hz monitor).

I see most tests are run on All High or Ultra settings for results.. just wondering if you have to sacrifice a lot of "eye candy" to get 140+fps?

Depends on the title, AA does tend to be a pretty big hitter on FPS in a lot of titles.

depends on the game. you can get ~300 FPS @ 1440p in CS:GO on a GT 1030 with everything on the highest settings.

ignoring resolution, generally AA and shadows make the biggest difference to frame rate.

the answer is buy a better card

(but lower rez and shut off AA for the fast eye cancer if the real answer is more than one can spend. Also never use the entry level version. For example, the 3gig 2060. You want the 6.)

( Unconventional advice )

If one is savvy, can banish bloat and see true potentials.

For starters, i install GPU drivers manually in devmgmt.msc. I prune the unpacked folder beforehand & none of the extra software gets installed; then i use Nvidia Inspector 3.50 as a control panel.

Process has only been working on Beta/DCH drivers lately for me; Temps do plummet and everything is lightning fast.

Requires several additional steps of course (wall of text); Brute install is possible on both cards last i checked. PM me with a specific NV or AMD GPU setup, i would help.

---

Also- This elevated cmd is a favorite, makes past updates permanent (vet wisely) but makes it super fast.

dism /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

Light OS helps too; 1Gb footprint. I like to toolkit my own OS from Techbench images, like this Gaming/Internet/Defender edition i made from 1809v2. (sorry can't share, diy!)

Shadows are generally more CPU intensive than GPU intensive assuming you aren't using advanced shadowing techniques. Its generally the first thing you should disable if you have a CPU bottleneck.

AA is generally a huge tax, disabling it first is always the right way to go. Toss some FXAA or similar low cost solution that reduces image quality if the jaggies are too much to bare.

You should identify first and foremost what is "limiting" your fps when you need it most.

1440p is still a fairly large resolution which means you're most likely GPU limited but depending on the game and situation where you feel you need more FPS it could be a CPU limitation.

The first thing you should do here is figure out if you are GPU limit or CPU limited when you want/need more fps.

Also it needs to be said but anything above 60 fps becomes a gimmick in a lot of ways. Your eyes will be hard pressed to notice the difference between 60 and 120 let along 80 and 144. FPS doesn't tell the entire story all you really need is enough fps to make the game feel smooth, anything after that is gravy.

the difference between 60 and 100-144 is night and day.

Nothing, depends on a game/application. Lots of this high, ultra nonsense candy has almost no visual impact either, setup each game one setting by another and know how much each impacts performance. Some games even look better at lower settings because you get soft shadows instead of the ultra sharp unrealistic shadows that cost a fortune to render too.

Other games it doesn't matter what you set GPU wise because they are CPU limited.
Or they are a complete disaster and fps is limited by server performance when playing online.

Maybe for you, jet fighter pilot but for the average person the benefits of fps past 60 diminish quickly.
Maybe the OP can see the difference between 120 and 144, if so sucks to be you but you gotta do what you gotta do.

For everyone else once you hit smooth there is no "more smoother".

Yes, everyone buys high refresh rate monitors because they're fighter pilots.

You can't tell the difference =/= there is no difference.
