    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    After reading this thread I thought I'd try NGFE to see what all the fuss is about, then this happened;



    BSODs every time I launch NGFE.

    So to answer the QOTW; no, I don't use auto-optimise...

    Wow CPUs and the amount of ram is so much and so fast programs like these do nothing, maybe you have a wooden pc?

    Only to get the auto-optimise Raptr points, then I undo the optimisations as they're wrong. (Raptr usually thinks my hardware is much weaker than it actually is.)

    I tend to agree with you there. I can run GTA5 higher than raptr recommends and it still works fine.

    I do. GeForce Experience works very well and saves a lot of hassle.

    I optimise, then turn it down for extra FPS

    I didn't auto-optimize for the longest time. Lately, it's been quite helpful! Nvidia actually does a really great job at optimization surprisingly.

    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    Yes. I use the optimise button in Gaming Evolved to get a starting point. If it's a game that I'm going to play a lot (especially if it's online and poor frame rates are going to get me killed) then I'll fine tune it afterwards.

    However on many of the games that I play GE just sets everything to max anyway - which is down to the healthy combination of an R9 285 and older games...

    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    no I do not - although I do usually check and use as a cross reference when doing my own settings
    i do find some eye candy in some titles just unnecessary and too much of a performance hog when I consider it will not alter my gaming experience

    my games are either modded and have certain requirements (eg. disabling in game and GPU AA/AF as I'm using ENB) - and if the title is not modded then I go with high/ultra and work backwards from there if the fps is not at the required level (40 to 60 fps is fine for me)

    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    I'm running 3x 1080P screens using Nvidia Surround and have had to give up using GeForce Experience since it seems to demand that I run my games at 720 instead of 1080.

    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    Yes. I then tweak further if necessary. Its great at finding the rough area the settings should be set at so you can just spend a smaller amount of time optimising if neccesary. Its not like I have the system or the time to make it worth my while tweaking for hours.

    I've been giving the GeForce Experience a crack and I haven't really notest a bit difference, its just more of a convenience thing for me, I end up tweaking settings anyway when I have the time.
