I’d like to preface this by saying that my game is running fine. Its not you, Fatshark, its me. I’m one of those people that would probably be a lot happier if I stopped monitoring my framerate…
I cannot for the life of me squeeze any more FPS out of this game. Tweaking PBO, RAM timings, and MSI afterburner yields zero improvements. I can even turn off PBO, underclock my GPU, and underclock my RAM to 2400MHz and not get a meaningful drop in FPS. When I say meaningful I mean outside the run-to-run variance of the benchmark. Having said that my last CPU was the 3700x and the upgrade to the 5600x drastically improved my FPS. The sweet spot as far as worker threads goes seems to be 4 by a minor margin BTW. It should be noted that I’m playing on the lowest graphics settings except for textures.
All of this begs the question, is the bottleneck the game engine? Will I ever experience Vermintide 2 without dropping below my refresh rate of 144Hz? Am I cursed to blame my friendly fire on minor screen tear?
Thanks for taking the time!
