FPS Cap settings?

Hello,

I recently come in possession of a new computer which so far so good but I was looking for a specific setting in ARC Control. FPS limiter or any other way to set a limit.

I know it sounds stupid but for my damaged eyes there is no difference in quality above 45 FPS. The heat generated by hardware on the other hand...

I am using right now v-sync to stay at 60 FPS most of the time but I was looking to lower a bit more and maybe take off a few more Celsius Degree. And not only that, it's about increasing the stability since there are less chances on a RPG to get a broken save at 60 FPS then having it at 200 FPS.

 

Thanks in advice.

 

To intel (in case any one is looking): Awesome job with ARC A770.

Hello @sweetpoison

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities.   

 

I understand you want to cap the frames per second, and I’ll be more than happy to help you.

 

Please install the Intel® Graphics Command Center (Beta)

 

Then, go to Display/General/Resolution and create a custom profile by clicking the + icon.

 

Also, in order to have more information about your system, please download, install and run Intel® System Support Utility for Windows. Make sure you check “Everything” before you scan, then save the report and attach it to your response.

 

Then, please generate and attach the Report for Intel® Intel Graphics Command Center

Hello
I have an issue with finding the settings you described. In the display general settings i do not have a "resolution" parameter. I only have "scale" and the only option it has is "keep display scale"

Hi @Jose_Intel ,

 

It's all good now.

Found the real problem which was causing as side effect the increase heat on video card. Was a stupid setting on UEFI where keeping the RAM overclock option disabled (XMP) was forcing the RAM to work at 2133MHz. Among other side effects, CPU performance loss 10%, video driver resetting in the middle of the game, XeSS getting broken (game Forspoken) and creating shadows on moving objects and windows acting a bit funny (had to reinstall it every other day / 5 times in 10 days). Fixed the problem by activating XMP.

 

Keeping v-sync ON do the trick and keeps the video card to a acceptable 64-66°C.

Also I had some tests by editing game's config file and place a FPS limit there and is not worth it. At 80-90 FPS the temperature goes to 75-82°C, at 60 FPS drops to 60-65°C, at 45FPS drops at 58-60°C.

So 60 FPS capped by v-sync looks like best option.

 

It might look disappointing but so far I can't find anything to complain about regarding ARC A770. Intel did an excellent job with this video card. 

 

BTW, I attached SSU report as reference.

 

Thanks again.
