If you are trying to buy a new graphics card this year, you find that the price of new graphics cards increases too much. As the chip shortage continues in the first half of 2021 and there is no sign of slowing down, many buyers have no good way to purchase new GPUs at a reasonable price.
The increased demand for electronic products during the shortage of cryptocurrencies, the rise in cryptocurrencies, and the increase in the value of cryptocurrencies during the new crown epidemic, all of which have caused the price of GPU to be much higher than its retail price. So what about this situation? If you don’t want to buy this graphics card, what techniques can you use to improve the GPU performance from the graphics card you already have?
1. Adjust the inside of the game
First, obvious things. If you encounter problems when you run your favorite game at a frame rate you like, then the first step is to reduce the quality of the graphics in the game, or reduce the overall resolution to increase the overall frame number (FPS) rate per second (FPS) rate rate Essence
Generally speaking, the heavier elements rendered by GPUs in the game are often anti -aliasing quality and texture quality. These two settings can usually be raised or lowering through a series of “levels”. But do you have this option and what form it uses depends on the game.
For example, in the popular 3A game wilderness dart 2, you will see four options: TAA (time anti -aliasing), FXAA (fast approximation), MSAA (multiple sampling) and none. Each setting has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the performance effect of each setting will be different according to the GPU you use to drive the game.
In this case, the best way to check how to get more performance from the current GPU is to run the internal test in the game in each anti -aliasing level. At the same time, it applies any other setting adjustments you need to perform and systematically compares the results. You only need to change one variable at a time. However, only some games have built -in benchmark test; for the wild dart 2, it is located under the graphic settings menu. Be sure to write down the performance figures (in FPS) and observe the visual quality to see if it is in the picture you feel more suitable for the game.
If you try to adjust the game lack of in -game benchmarks, you can use tools such as FRAPS to help record your frame rate and make corresponding adjustments.
All in all, this concession applies to each setting in the game, whether it is anti -aliasing strength, texture quality, shadow level or other settings. There is no basic rule for bypassing the GPU zoom: the more setting the setting of the frame, the worse the game looks worse. The more times the number of times, the more difficult the GPU is working, and the more calories you send.
2. Use dynamic resolution to zoom, if possible,
Dynamic resolution zoom (DRS) is a recent feature that has just started to attract attention in the mainstream, because more and more developers want to provide the method of running games at the best frame rate on the best hardware.
DRS can only be used on the basis of games one by one, which means that it must be an option in your game menu to open. It improves the frame rate by dynamically adjusting the rendering resolution of the scene according to the number of elements on the screen. The more content required for GPU rendering, the more it will reduce the rendering image to keep the frame rate above the same level.
For example, you are in a small corridor with only a few enemies. This is a relaxed task for your GPU, which can increase the frame rate. Entering a broad field of vision, there are more enemies, the spacecraft fell from the sky, and there are trackers everywhere?
DRS solves this problem. Although it does not always get the best choice from a higher frame rate from the card, it helps to provide more in various scenarios and scenes
Frame rate. Want to try it? Just check the game settings of DRS switching and open it.
3. Is there a Radeon graphics card?
For the owner of the AMD Radeon card, they cannot decide which settings to sacrifice in higher frame rate services. The company’s latest version of Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition Radeon Settings Advisor (RSA).
RSA is part of the complete Radeon kit. This is a real -time report system that tracks the performance of the game under your current settings. It is also important: it automatically recommends which settings can be adjusted to provide the best visual experience at a more consistent frame rate.
It is recommended that you adjust the game based on your visual preferences before accepting the suggestions of artificial intelligence control.
4. Image sharp device: Radeon Image Sharpence, NVIDIA FREESTYLE and Reshade
The reason is the image sharpner. In the past few years, “Threchrifier” like Nvidia’s Freestyle will apply a secondary filter in your game to clear any of any that you may be introduced when you reduce the rendering resolution or anti -aliasing level level. Rough edge.
On the other hand, AMD’s Radeon image is more advanced. RIS is not simply applying plane filters on the entire image, but applies an algorithm called contrasting adaptive sharpness (CAS). Different elements in this algorithm use to determine which edges need to be sharp and which edges. Can be retained.
CAS has the unique advantage of open source. As long as the game itself supports it, anyone who has any graphics card (AMD or NVIDIA!) Can choose to open the function. This function has been repaired into many games we use to test the new graphics cards. You can see the effect of using CAS or DLSS in the latest results released by the Radeon RX 6700 XT below
3A game test: high -end GPU 2021
After the RIS is enabled, gamers can reduce the rendering resolution by 35%, instead of seeing the image quality decreased significantly, which means that the number of frames per second increases by 35%. However, Nvidia’s Freestyle is not so tolerant. Because RIS adopts a more targeted method for problems, better image quality can usually be generated throughout the process.
Opening them in supported games is usually a simple switch. The question is whether the given game supports the technology and which technologies are supported.
5. Another benefit of AMD graphics card users: Radeon Boost
If you have a Radeon RX 400 or updated graphics card, AMD Radeon Boost setting is an interesting way that you can get a higher average frame rate and delay from some of the most popular multiplayer games today. Similar to DRS, Radeon Boost uses the mouse movement to determine when you quickly rotate your role in this way, making the corner of the video card is not obvious.
When you are usually called “light bomb shooting” in multi -player shooting games, you will quickly move the mouse from one part of the screen to another to try to focus on your enemies as soon as possible. In these cases, it is more important to have a higher frame rate than when clicking the head.
Radeon Boost has adapt to the resolution of the game adaptive during the camera. Provide instant “improvement” for your frame rate. Once you stop moving the mouse, the game will return to its original resolution for rendering.
6. Open DLSS (only GeForce RTX users)
So, before the price of supply and 20 series and newer GeForce RTX 30 series enters the track, have you lucky to get the NVIDIA 20 series graphics card with the “RTX” logo? Then,
Using DLSS is the fastest and simplest way to get higher performance from the NVIDIA graphics card you already have. There is a big warning.
DLSS is magical due to lack of more complicated technical explanations for time. This technology uses artificial intelligence to eliminate jagged in the game. In our tests, we found that it can increase your frame rate in specific circumstances
, Will not have any significant impact on the visual quality of your game.
Such a big harvest? The realization of dlss in the game is limited, the game
Support it to allow you to participate. When writing this article as of April 2021, DLSS 2.0 was only less than three dozen. However, if you often play one of the enlightened games, such as “Call of Duty: Theater”, this improvement is undeniable.
Call of Duty: RTX is turned on, and DLSS: 108FPS. Open the RTX: 176FPS of the DLSS super performance mode.
NVIDIA recently announced the DLSS basic integration with Unreal Engine 4 and Unity. These are the two most commonly used game engines today. However, before that, considering the limit of the technology and the limitation of the specific card it will run (that is, the GeForce RTX card) it will run, it is not a daily choice for most people.
Users should know that for many of the above technologies, DLSS is a situation of “all or none”. It will cover your option to fight against jagged, DRS or enable AMD FidelityFX CAS. In other words, we don’t mind hand over the control of these settings in exchange for 60% or more frames per second: Warzone only requires a firmware patch and a software update. This money is not spent on a new video card. You can use it for higher resolution display, and you still cannot see the number of frames decrease, because DLSS will always make up for this problem.
After experiencing a turbulent start, DLSS finally began to show a certain degree of maturity in its field. If you have a GeForce RTX card, then DLSS (if given game support) should always be the first choice for you to find any extra performance in virtual GPU. If support, just find the switch switch in the game menu and turn it on.
7. Adjust two key Windows 10 settings
For users on Windows 10, the two settings hidden in the graph setting part of the setting window, VRS and hardware accelerate GPU scheduling, can help you get some additional frames in some games that support any function. To visit them, right -click the Windows desktop, select “Display Settings”, then roll down to the bottom and click “Figure Settings”. (If you do not see them, make sure that the Windows 10 that you update installed through Windows 10 is the latest.)
Open the variable rate coloring
The first is the variable rate coloring (VRS), which is a newer technology that is only applicable to two games you can play in this article: Gears 5 and Gears Tactics. If you like any of them, you can see the benefits of this new technology. In short, it has changed the calculation method of the color device.
Open the hardware to accelerate the GPU scheduling
Another small improvement in the GPU field has appeared in the Windows 10 update in May 2020. It has changed the so -called “GPU scheduling program”, which is the basic term concentrated instruction. It tells your GPU how much or how much power is used for any specific task. The GPU scheduling program in Windows is the same until the Windows Vista era. It has recently been updated as part of the Windows 10 2004 feature construction.
So far, other channels have the same conclusion: it has some help, but it is too early to judge how long the long -term impact is. The game launched before the latest update in May 2020 took into account the original GPU scheduling program, which means that if they can, they don’t even know how to use optimization.
Even if it is optimized, people believe that the main beneficiary of the technology will be a game that can use the CPU six or more cores, such as Grand Theft Auto V or Civilized VI. If you often play any of these games, you can see a small part of the income by opening it, but the same, this feature is limited to the edge situation.
8. Residable Bar that can adjust the size
Another function ReSizable Bar recently launched has actually existed in the Beta Bios built on the motherboard for a while. (On AMD -based systems, it is also called smart access memory, or SAM.) Just recently, the emergence of the PCI Express 4.0 bus on the motherboard allows it to open a more effective communication pipeline between compatible CPUs. Turn and GPU.
This function appeared for the first time during the release of AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card. When we tested this function at that time, it only provided a small bump, and the frame results were 8%faster in some cases. This is usually not enough to help RX 6700 XT compete with NVIDIA in DirectX 11 games (especially NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition).
If you plan to play a lot of games using DirectX 11, do you cautiously. If you have a NVIDIA card, please use it to get the best frame rate in these games until the driver of Radeon RX 5000 and RX 6000 series GPU shakes in future updates.
Open Resizable Bar or SAM (if it can) occur in BIOS, and it requires the latest model components, so it may not be useful for those who try to extend the life of the service. It may also need to update the motherboard and video card firmware. Check the website of your motherboard manufacturer to obtain the corresponding BIOS update and where to find a specific type of switch that is suitable for you.
9. Then it is overclocking
Although its effectiveness has declined in recent years, the oldest and most reviewed method of obtaining more power from the GPU is overclocking.
With the increase of the function and complexity of the card, the GPU can reasonably expect the clock speed limit of its basic rate to be reduced, and the card manufacturer is very good at retaining little performance in their design. But this does not mean that you cannot get what you need from the card at a critical moment. Application of AMD’s Wattman and Radeon overclocking software provides a series of options suitable for novices to adjust your graphics card. NVIDIA users have no pain to choose. They can use third -party software options, such as MSI Afterburner and Evga Precision X1, which are often suitable for the most widely used third -party GeForce card.
We have seen a graphics card like AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT that can easily maintain an overclocking of nearly 25%. However, whether this can transform 1: 1 into such a high performance depends on the game.
10. Buy GPU water cold block
One of the few types of computer components that have not risen in the past year in the past year are the cooler. Especially in the case of GPU, this means a closed -loop liquid cooling system with a GPU water -cooled ornament.
GPU liquid cooling is a reliable way that can significantly reduce the temperature of the GPU, so that you can overclock the possibility of traditional air cooling.
