Console gamers cherish every bit of their life easily. Because the game developers keep in mind how a console can perform better. The hardware of consoles is already flawlessly adapted for fantastic gameplay.
On the other hand, PC gaming can be much less compatible. The mismatched hardware, outdated software, and lighter graphic card are some factors that explain the poor performance of games on PCs. So if you are experiencing video lag or stutters, you may need to modify the PC to enhance the frame rate, measured in FPS(frames per second).
These are some tips to improve FPS on your computer and boost its gaming performance;
Low fps(frames per second) is when your game runs slow as your computer does not have sufficient power or memory to allow it to run properly. The main causes of low FPS are an old graphics driver, a weak graphic card, insufficient RAM, or an outdated processor. The games are also displayed on your monitor in a rapid-fire series of frames like movies. The number of frames that your monitor shows each second is known as your frame rate. This frame rate is measured in fps-frames per second.
Since, your computer is not compatible to keep generating all these frames, the frame rate decreases. Eventually, this will result in the gaming resolution and feeling as though it is running in slow mode. If PC gamers successfully boost FPS, they win and can easily play the games.
Gaming on your PC is not as easy as console gaming. Instead of just plug in and play, you also need to check that it works well on your PC. Below are the seven guidelines and troubleshooting techniques for enhancing your computer’s video performance.
Before modifying your PC, you need to know two stats; your current frame rate, expressed in frames per second(fps), and your monitor’s refresh rate, measured in hertz (Hz).
First, we will find the refresh rate as it is quite easy to find. To find out the refresh rate, we need to measure the times your monitor redraws the screen each second, fps faster than this has no value. However, most monitors have a refresh rate of 60 Hz, so your ideal expected frame rate will be 60 fps.
On the contrary, some new gaming monitors provide higher refresh rates like 144 Hz, 200 Hz, or more. Thus, if you have a new gaming monitor, you may target a frame rate that matches. But keep in mind that you would also need a high-end video card if you want to use a gaming monitor.
Looking at the frame rate your graphics system cannot hold is not complicated, but there are various techniques to do it.
Though it depends upon the games you play:
When you know your PC’s frame rate (and its comparison with the monitor’s refresh rate), you can use any of the above tricks to enhance your computer’s performance.
Game mode arranges various window settings with a single click to optimize your PC for gaming and enhance the display’s frame rate.
You need to check whether your computer’s system updates and device drivers are of the latest version. Since this is important for expecting the best performance from your PC. There are the following two things you can do.
Quickly check for windows updates.
Click the Start button and then select ‘Settings’, their type ‘Updates’, and then choose ‘Check for Updates’ from the search results. Look for yourself whether you have installed the latest updates or not.
Updating video card drivers.
This happens automatically; after you check your windows updates, the graphics card might need one too. But If you use Nvidia GeForce Experience, what you need is to open the application and choose ‘Drivers’ showing at the top of the window. Then, click on ‘Check for updates’ to see if there is a need for any new ones to install or not.
Each game differs, but if your frame rate is meager, you can venture into your game’s settings screen and decrease the image quality. There may be a single option to change the image quality from “high” to “medium”, such as you may require to adjust individual settings for viewing distance, texture effects, and more.
Unless you do not have the latest gaming PC, you may need to give up something in the graphics department for the sake of higher FPS. Decreasing your screen resolution is also an important setting as it improves FPS by making your GPU’s job easy. Now it does not have to support so many pixels with each frame.
Of course, the graphics won’t look clear, but the game will run more smoothly with modified display settings. Click on your PC’s settings, select ‘System’, and then click ‘Advanced Display Settings’. Select a lower-resolution option in the resolution menu. This setting can have a substantial effect on your frame rate.
If you are unable to improve your frame rate with these tips, then there is only one solution left. The solution is to update your graphics card. This option may not be available if you are gaming on your Laptop (but there are some special cases- a few Alienware laptops, for example, enable you to attach an external “Graphics Amplifier” to update your display quality).
Otherwise, if you have a desktop PC, you can exchange your graphics card with some other, which completely changes your frame rate and also improves your performance.
For instance, if you have a fast gaming computer still you can benefit from applying these techniques. So think of implementing them.
