Fix low FPS issue in game

FPS, low, issues

Low FPS (frames per second) in a game or any graphical application can be caused by various factors. Here are some common reasons:

  1. Hardware Limitations:

   - Graphics Card (GPU): If your GPU is outdated or not powerful enough to handle the demands of the application, it can lead to low FPS.

   - CPU: Some games and applications are CPU-intensive. If your CPU is not able to keep up, it may bottleneck the system, resulting in low FPS.

  1. Insufficient RAM:

  - Not having enough RAM can cause performance issues. Running multiple applications or demanding software may lead to excessive memory usage and impact FPS.

Solution found by changing to 2x 8gb 3200mhz teamgroup rgb, this change gave 30-40 more fps than before and was stable.

  - Utilizing dual 8GB RAM modules instead of a single 16GB module can significantly impact FPS. Additionally, optimizing performance involves adjusting RAM speed in the BIOS, preferably to 3200 MHz if both the RAM and motherboard support it. Failing to do so may result in default speeds like 2666 MHz, potentially causing FPS issues.

  1. Outdated Drivers:

   - Ensure that your graphics card drivers are up to date. Manufacturers often release updates to optimize performance for new games and applications.

  1.  Game Issues:

   - Bugs, glitches.Check for updates or patches for the specific application or game.

  1. Overheating:

   - Overheating can lead to throttling, where the hardware reduces its performance to prevent damage. Make sure your system is adequately cooled and free of dust.

  1. Background Processes:

   - Other applications running in the background may consume system resources. Close unnecessary programs to free up resources for the game or application.

  1. Resolution and Graphics Settings:

   - Running the game at a higher resolution or with maximum graphics settings may strain your hardware. Lowering these settings can improve FPS.

  1. Network Issues:

   - In online multiplayer games, a slow or unstable internet connection can cause lag and affect FPS. Check your internet connection for stability.

  1. Storage Speed:

   - If your game is installed on a slow hard drive, it may impact loading times and overall performance. Consider using a faster storage solution, such as an SSD.

  1. Client NIC optimization

- When optimizing the client NIC, not all clients will get better performance as each client NIC is different. So for some clients, you need to disable only "Flow Control" in the NIC properties.

  1. Server NIC speed

- When you have more clients booting from CCBoot server, having only 1 NIC - 1gbps is not enough and clients run into low FPS issues due to client PCs not able to load game files fast enough.

To solve this, use multiple NIC on the server, preferable is Dual NIC or Quad NIC (Server NIC teaming) depending on the number of client PCs you have.

  1. Optimize your client OS

- There are many ways you can optimize your OS for game, below are some of articles related to it

  1.  Writeback disk 0% idle

- If you are having low FPS and lag as well then you need to check your writeback disk for 0% idle issue. If Writeback is not able to keep up with your client writeback then it can result in low FPS and lagging issues.

To solve this, you need to optimize your writeback disk. some of the ways are listed below

a. Replace current writeback disk with better SSD EVO / NVME EVO

b. Increase or decrease writeback disk cache to match your writeback disk

c. Format writeback disk - so that any corrupt data will be removed allowing for smoother writes to the writeback disk

d. Never use hdd for any disk for CCBoot, Always use SSD/NVME
