Thanks for your suggestions guys!!
One evening testing pcars2/ ED/ NMS/ HLA/ so far.
HLA was a major improvement not stutters and hitting 90fs average roughly for the 120hz mode 5k+…so smooth and can even push at very high settings now. No more system memory requirement error and with Pcie 4.0 Ssd loading screens take 3 seconds not 3 minutes.
Pcars 2: I was getting almost 50fms highs without smoothing on in 72 Hz mode with “previous build” but almost 60fms at times in 120hz mode which felt much smoother. Now I get 84fps highs under same conditions without smoothing in120hz mode…so much better but still not sure if I should use smoothing in 120hz mode it feels good either way.
I don’t understand why most experienced SIM racers prefer 72 Hz without smoothing. Looks awful to me personally. Having said that perhaps I still need a stronger GPU etc.
Elite Dangerous: In stations can get around 55fps and “35fps previous build” 60 plus fps on moon surfaces very nice!120hz mode is so much smother all around now.
ED and Pcars 2 I still run on lower settings trying to optimize for performance sharpness/SS
I can actually play NMS now! Need to test more but 120hz mode no problem not an issue.
Overall new build will be great with newer games coming in the future I think and gets the job done with older heavy sims/open world games etc. Will add more ram in the short term but I am extremely stoked overall
Still have not tried the 144hz updates!! Do you guys recommend it for my specs etc or should maybe wait? I am enjoying the 120hz mode and don’t suffer any problems with drivers etc.
Suggestions always welcome!
