Tips to Optimize Graphics Card Performance And boost FPS for Gaming

So you got a brand new gaming PC or grabbed a new graphics card but are not sure how to make the most out of it?

Video games are now highly demanding, and you will always find a need to boost FPS and enhance your gaming performance. New gaming titles like Witcher 3, GTA 5, and Assassin Creed Valhalla require the best PC hardware to run as these are graphic intensive. Apart from installing the latest graphics card, here are some easy changes that you can make to improve your in-game FPS and the overall performance.

Switch to Game Mode

Switching to Window’s Game Mode is the simplest thing you can do to enhance settings. Getting the operating system to optimize gaming performance is the same as telling Windows that you are a gamer. You need the latest version of Windows (Windows 10 or 11) to enjoy the game mode. Beyond Windows 10 or 11, the task of turning on Game Mode can be easily accomplished.

Update Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling

With a new GPU and Windows 10 or 11, you can make use of Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling to mitigate latency and enhance performance. Assist your GPU in delivering 100 per cent of its potential by updating your graphics card driver to improve performance, and you will notice a remarkable increase in FPS.

Turn on G-Sync

If your gaming monitor has G-Sync compatibility, then you must check if it is correctly set up. This might not give you a performance boost, but it will certainly enhance your overall gaming experience by offering more eye-pleasing and smoother visuals. To activate G-Sync, right-click on the desktop, click on Nvidia Control Panel and look for “Setup G-Sync” on the left-hand side menu and select G-Sync to enable it.

Delay automatic Windows updates

Automatic Windows updates initiate software updates that make your system more secure by enabling security fixes. But downloading an update while you are in the middle of an online gaming session can tamper with your bandwidth.

Switch to Ultra-Low Latency Mode

To enjoy the best gaming performance, the games should ideally support Nvidia Reflex, but there is another possible way of giving your system a boost and mitigating latency by enabling the Ultra-Low Latency Mode of Nvidia.

Keep Your PC Clean

If your PC is running too hot, it can be thermally throttling for your CPU and also your graphics card. It further leads to an intelligent reduction of power usage to prevent your PC’s components from breaking. But this could result in less FPS. You can avoid this by simply cleaning your PC occasionally because dirt and dust build-up could ruin your fun.

Get better FPS using the above tips, and enjoy your game!
