Any way to optimize a game that is not cpu optimized?

 Share

I have been playing this game called "Squad" I absolutely love the game, and my performance is playable. However sometimes I do struggle to even get 60fps. From my understanding, the game is reliant on single core speed and does not optimize for multi core threading. It runs on UE4, I tried running in -dx12. In -dx12 I do get a framerate jump, however the general visual bugs and stability makes that nearly unplayable. Is there anything I can try to do to sqeeze some more frames? Or do I just have to hope the developers optimize their game more? I have a Ryzen 7 5800x, RTX 3080, and only 32gb of 2133 memory.

I am going to play around more with overclocking the ram. I don't know much about overclocking. I played a few times with it, and even at 3000mhz I would get memory dump crashes. So right now I put it back stock.

2x 16gb stick? Which model? Try 2933 or 2666, 2133 is too low for that processor. 

 

Have you try DXVK? It could help

So I looked up what ram I purchased since its been about a year ago. I have 2x16 Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3600 (PC4-28800) C18 1.35V. If it is advertised at 3600, why am I getting such low speed default? I know little to nothing about ram. I did find someone with a simular  rig to mine and the settings he used. Currently running stable at 3200 mhz, will game on it after work to see if it stays stable. But why is the stock speed so low? Its not top of the line ram, but it was still not bottom tier either.

Enable XMP.  That will raise the voltage to 1.35V along with raising the speeds.  If you just tried setting it to 3000, it would be at the base 1.2V which would explain why it wasn't stable there.

 

To get some more FPS you could try setting the CPU affinity to your best single core or to the real cores on your best CCX.  (you could disable SMT in BIOS)

Might help a bit.

Okay yall, so I was able to get a stable 3200mhz. I looked up some information on my specific ram, and someone with a similar system. I used their timing settings to see if it would be stable for me. And so far so good, no crashes at all. I am getting easily 10-15 more frames per second in my game. So now I am no longer dropping below 60.

Swap to 5800X3D if you want more performance for that game. 😉
