So after a good research and testing i am here to tell you the best 3d settings you can use for getting the highest FPS on your PC. I am sure most of the users will be getting a FPS boost from this, I am not saying 100+ or so. So, Let’s get started!
1. Opening Nvidia Control Panel:
- Close CS:GO if running.
- Right click on your desktop and select NVIDIA Control Panel.
2. Select the right option:
- Now once you open the control panel, move on to Adjust Image settings with preview.
- Make sure the option Use the advanced 3d image settings is selected.
3. The Best 3D Settings:
- Make sure you are on Manage 3D Settings tab before going further.
- Select Global Settings and Change Each of your settings to the below mentioned ones.
Change Your Settings to these:
- Ambient Occlusion: Ambient Occlusion is simply put, a lighting effect that drastically improves shadows on geometries. Select OFF.
- Anisotropic Filtering: It enhance the image quality of textures on surfaces by reducing fuzziness and blur. Select Application Controlled.
- Antialiasing FXAA: It defaults at Off since games naturally had their own AA options. Select OFF.
- Antialiasing Gamma Correction: It refers to the correction of brightness values within an AA enhanced image. Setting this on and off has no performance impact but has an effect on the brightness of some antialiased textures. Select OFF.
- Antialiasing Mode: Select Application Controlled.
- Antialiasing Transparency: This is pretty much another AA implementation. Select OFF.
- CUDA GPUS: allows you to select which graphics processing unit will use CUDA for general computing functions. Games with Nvidia PhysX technology benefits with CUDA enabled GPUs. Select all for the best possible performance.
- DSR Factor: DSR or Dynamic Super Resolution is basically an improved down sampling method. It allows the graphics card to render the game at a higher resolution than your display could provide and outputs it using your native resolution. Select OFF.
- Maximum Pre-rendered Frames: It is a buffer used to store data in preparation to be used by the GPU. How much frame should be prepared ahead is govern by this setting. Set it to 1.
- MFAA: It refers to another AA method, similar to MSAA but it doesn’t feature the same performance impact. Select OFF.
- Power Management Mode: Modern GPUs can set their power usage under various scenarios and this setting pertains to that feature. Select Prefer the Maximum Performance.
- Shader Cache: It is a feature to optimizing 3D application load times and CPU performance. Select OFF.
- Texture Filtering – Anisotropic: Select OFF.
- Texture Filtering – Negative LOD Bias: Negative LOD Bias refers to texture sharpening by inputing a negative Level of Detail value for mipmap selection. Select Allow.
- Texture Filtering – Quality: This setting controls Anisotropic Sample Optimization and Trilinear Optimization. Select High performance.
- Texture Filtering – Trilinear Optimization: Select OFF.
- Threaded Optimization: It is the setting that manages multi-threading optimizations for 3D applications. Select ON.
- Triple Buffering and V-SYNC: Triple buffering allows performance improvements on games if V-SYNC is turned on and V-SYNC is an anti-tearing teachnology, synchronizing the framerate with the monitor’s refresh rate. Select OFF for CS:GO.
- Virtual Pre-Rendered Frames: This limits the frames the CPU can prepare for VR devices. The setting is set to 1 by default. Set it to 1.
Alright, Now you have got the best 3d settings for CS:GO, You can try these things mentioned below to get a little bit boost.
- Use this command: cl_forcepreload 1
- Verify Integrity Cache.
- Run these commands: snd_updateaudiocache and snd_rebuildaudiocache and restart CS:GO.
- set fps_max to 0 or 999.
- Only use these launch options: -novid -tickrate 64/128 -freq 60/120/144 +mat_queue_mode 2. Other doesn’t really helps you to improve FPS.
- Run Disk Defragmenter programs. Don’t defrag an SSD. It shortens the life span of the drive as they have a limited number of read/write cycles.
- Stop unwanted programs from running on system start. Go to task manager -> Startup and disable unwanted programs.
- Temp Files. Open Run (Win+R) -> Type: %temp% -> Delete everything you can in the folder.
- Set Power Management Mode to High performance.
