About pimax gpu catalyst setup
I don’t know much about intelligent frame repair first, but the general meaning is that intelligent frame repair is to run the game with the lowest frame reduction (usually half of the maximum refresh rate) in a complex scene, and then on the basis of this frame repair, such as refresh rate of 90, in a complex scene, the lowest frame reduction is 45.Generally speaking, gpu catalysts are used together with intelligent complementary frames. Only when intelligent complementary frames are needed can gpu catalysts play a role
So how much is appropriate for gpu catalyst to be turned on?I tried a game and used FPSVR frame count software:
First, I set gpu catalyst 0. In complex scenes, the frame number dropped from 90 to 45 in an instant, and the average frame number also dropped to 55. The gpu occupancy rate was only 50%, and many graphics card resources were wasted.
Then, I set the gpu catalyst, high, such as setting up to 5, I found in complex scenes, no longer fall frames, is running 90 full frames, and the frame number is an average of 90, but the gpu occupancy rate, an average of more than 90%, and most importantly, the graphics often caton, as to why caton, may be the graphics occupancy rate is too high, and super resolution, sampling, may also be other reasons.
Therefore, I set gpu catalyst 2.5, and the number of frames dropped to 45, and the average frame number also decreased. However, the average frame number did not drop as fast as when the gpu catalyst was 0, but slowly, and finally reached the average frame number of 60!That’s 5 points more than when the gpu catalyst was zero!
Finally, I set the gpu catalyst 4.5, and the frame number of the result showed 90, and the average frame number no longer kept falling, but the value of 89 floating up and down, about 89, and the picture is no longer stuck, but I’m afraid to burn the graphics card…The graphics card is still running at a high load, 95% of them have appeared, and the temperature has soared to over 80 degrees (I plan to set the gpu catalyst to 4 next time).
When does a gpu catalyst work best?
If the game runs into complex scenes, the graphics card occupancy rate is low, and the frame number is also very low, then the game optimization is poor, at this time the gpu catalyst has the best effect, which is what I said above.
If the game runs in a complex scene, the graphics card occupancy rate is high, and the frame number is also very low. At this moment, the gpu catalyst improves the effect is also poor, because there are not many remaining graphics card resources available, the forced promotion will only cause the jam, and the frame number will not rise much
(you can also reduce the viewing Angle or pitoo picture quality, which reduces the graphics card occupancy, which also means that you can allocate more graphics card resources for the use of gpu catalyst functions, anyway, all kinds of robbing Peter to pay Paul…)
- As for running the game, when the graphics card occupies a high or low rate and the frame number is high, gpu catalyst is optional and useless
In addition, after setting up, you must restart the helmet, otherwise the setting will be invalid. I suggest that you directly click on the room Settings (not the real room Settings, but forcing the helmet to restart), then immediately turn off the room Settings and start steam vr
The game I tested, after repeated testing, the average frame number by 50 frames, directly increased by 30 frames, to 90 frames, full promotion, full refresh rate frame number to run, graphics card occupancy rate from about 50% to about 90%, and the picture is no longer stuck, also more fluid than the low frame number
