Mysterious 200 FPS framerate cap?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It isnt a serious problem, but an annoyance, something on my PC is capping my framerate to 200 FPS and I can't figure out what. I've turned off Gsync, Vsync, and made sure GEForce Experience doesnt think im on battery power, and I cant even find a framerate cap setting, and checked windows power settings and set to "high performance" - Looking for any suggestions, or a way to find what is throttling the card? I discovered this when running the userbenchmark utility here http://www.userbenchmark.com/

My specs are:

  • Windows 10 Home 64 bit
  • Strix Z270E (not sure of bios)
  • Intel i7 7700k (stock)
  • Patriot 3400 C16 Series 2x8GB
  • Strix 1070 (GPU Tweak software up to date and set to "gaming mode")
  • Samsung 850 Evo 250GB boot drive
  • Samsung 850 Evo 500GB storage drive
  • Samsung 960 Evo NVMe PCIe M.2 1TB ( M.2 port set to 4x PCIe)
  • WD WD1600AAKX-22V1A2 160GB - sacrificial drive
  • WD Blue 2TB for long term storage.
  • 750 watt modular PSU who's manufacturer Ive forgotten

Some games cap at 200FPS, also Rivatuner & other programs can enforce an FPS cap. Be sure to check those.

I dont have rivatuner, and what games can enforce an FPS cap when not running? I am at a total loss, everything i can think of that might be capping it I have disabled, turned off, or even uninstalled. surely there is some way to easily identify what is enforcing a cap?

You don't have anything like EVGA Precision, MSI Afterburner, etc. (GPU OCing utilities) by any chance do you? Some of these have FPS caps built in.

battlefield 1 and battlefield 5 for example are capped to 200FPS no matter what...it's an in engine cap.

This isnt a problem for me in game though, my framerates never approach that at the settings I use. this is a problem in synthetic benchmarks.

ASUS GPU Tweak, I'll try uninstalling it later, but I have the FPS target set to "0" which afaik should uncap the framerate.

You could also try using DDU to wipe the nvidia drivers and then reinstalling them. Outside of that I can't think of much to do besides a windows reinstall.

I'm due for a reformat anyway.
