Hi all. I am just wondering if I was hallucinating, or if I used to get 110fps using my current graphics card. I'm using an MSI GTX 1070 Armor. The game looks absolutely amazing and has been described by a console-gaming friend as "looking like you're in a real war". However I seem stuck between 59 and 61 FPS. I'm not trying to [edited]and gripe, the game looks absolutely amazing and the framerate is excellent, but where have the extra frames gone? I haven't had this 1070 for long and don't trust computers or technology much!

 

I have full AA on, but even with this switched off it makes no difference to FPS. I'm using an i5 6600K clocked at 4.5GHz (although websites which analyse my computer seem to feel it's running at the default 3.5GHz).

 

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a case of Vsync, doesn't it?

 

Check your ingame settings and also video card driver settings

whether you enabled vsync somewhere and report back,

if possible with screenshots, but not neccessary.

 

PS: unless you experience display errors,

adaptive vsync is a great tool if your screen is max 60 Hz.

unneeded frames are not rendered, thus less power consumption = less heat

 

For newer screens there are technologies like g-sync (nvidia) and freesync (AMD) which adapt

the screen refresh to game fps to improve display quality.

I second Pansen, you most likely have a 60hz monitor and Vsync turned on, which synchronize your FPS with your monitors refresh rate.

Did you turn on vsync from nVidia control panel settings?

Is this a recent change? Because i'm having the same issue after the Win10 update! And after a couple of games i'm getting stuttering as well. Updated my GPU drivers but that didn't help.

THIS may be the most likely cause. Sometimes your driver settings screw you up.

Must say, WoT's graphics are one thing that's awesome about the game, for how old it is. Altough the optimization kinda' sucks a bit :S

Not counting physics into graphics too. Those are awful.

Vsync is capping the game at 61. So turn that off. It just locks the FPS there. Only a viable setting if you get screen tearing on higher FPS.

Luckily, that update never did anything to "screw" my games up. I do run Nvidia to.

I don't know if it's just me, but the game feels a lot smoother with in-game vsync enabled even if it kills the fps which shouldn't really matter for 60Hz displays.

If you only have a 60Hz monitor then it doesn't matter how high your FPS is as you're only ever getting max 60 FPS on your screen. So as long as your GPU can provide a rock solid 60 FPS minimum then anything above that is wasted cycles.

Yes and no, a higher FPS than the refresh rate is often resulting in less input lag, however you risk screen tearing etc. I generally have it off as default and only turn it on if I really need it due to severe display issues.

With my reactions one sixtieth of a second input lag won't make a difference.

Don't be so sure, with everything else causing a delay along the way it quickly adds up.

You can measure my reaction time with a calendar. :hiding:

I see, in that case I don't think Vsync is for you, I think a traditional setting of 6 beers to blur it all out a bit is better ;)

So let's get this right then....

A 60hz monitor is only capable of max 60fps, yes?

So if I enable VSync this will lock my FPS to monitor refresh rate of 60hz, yes?

At the moment I am getting 118 FPS with all graphics settings maxed out apart from grass in sniper mode.

My monitor is 60 Hz any benefit of using VSync then? 

I am not getting screen tearing.

Thanks

If you don't have any display issues with it off then no you won't gain anything positive by turning it on. With it on you either see no difference at all or get some input lag which in combination with regular lag, server lag etc etc can result in a negative effect.

I get the feeling that vsync dramatically improves frame timing thus making game feel smoother, other than that there's no benefit in using vsync since you're not getting any screen tearing. 

Having high fps should reduce input lag but since world of tanks is not a twitch shooter then it doesn't really matter, I personally could't tell the difference between 60 and 260 fps in CSGO.
