NIS with Pimax 8kX for DCS

Hi @all,
How can i use NIS (Nvidia Image scaling) for my Pimax 8kX with SteamVR and PiTool for better FPS results in DCS?


don’t think about it any further

i think this works with dcs:

iirc theres a small change you make to the config file you download with the mod which enables NIS instead of FSR.


Isn’t worth the effort. DCS is so CPU bound. Reshade brings something for a better look.
For more performance, it is more helpful to clock the CPU to at least 5GHz. Then use ProjectLasso and Route everything in such a way that DCS has the two best cores for itself. So SteamVr and everything that the system does not need relocated.
I get 68-90 FPS in normal FOV at 90Hz in single player. Multiplayer gnaws at the CPU again in such a way that it tends to drop to 35-50FPS.
