Ahoy captains!

 

 Some of you may already know this little "trick". I myself just discovered it while i was looking for windows energy management over Bosi's suggestion*

Search for performance options at your computer. You can choose between better looking computer and better performance computer. From default its set to best for my computer. Which means balanced. I will change my power settings aswell if i can. There is high performance option there too but i m afraid i might fry my compter.

 

But lets face it. Developers fix your game!

Try going in the Windows Energie settings and disable the energie saving on Pci-express and look if its change something.

It kind of worked for my potato computer. I was getting 37-47 FPS spikes and normally around 30. Now its 58-71 FPS spikes with still 30 FPS on normal. Fix your game devs.

So let's analyse this. You have a potato computer plus you changed setting in windows which improved your FPS but you still think it's the games fault? You have some fancy logic there!

 

Anyway, changing the performance settings to always full performance is BAD. Simply because your computer, HDD/SDD, CPU, Graphics Card will run at full speed all the time, even if you do nothing, only browse the web or write an email. It consumes a shitton of power for no reason, permanently. If you think it's not much then i suggest you take a few bucks and buy on of these adapter thingys to measure the power consumption and hook up your PC with it. You'd be surprised how much money you burn with such a "great" tip. And BTW, having the computer run at full speed all the time will worn out your hardware as well which kills it sooner and you need sooner a new computer - keyword Electromigration

 

As far as the Graphics Card goes, you can have game profiles and you can set high peformance settings just for certain games. Google is your friend, if you don't know how to do this.

You do know the performance tweaks he was talking about ( better looking computer and better performance computer ) are the visual options, turn off aero, shadows, menu fades etc and not about power options - setting the processor min/max state?

Obviously we both read different things in the op.
