These PC performance tips and tricks can make a world of difference when you’re working at home and maybe don’t have easy access to an IT help desk or resources. I’ve written my own performance guide that builds on top of yours, and is mostly for hardware and more advanced performance tuning. And check you don’t have any DEBUG builds of mods installed. In particular, per-frame log file spamming can decimate frame rate.
Upgrading your CPU, memory size or Graphics processor can have a MAJOR impact on your FPS and overall game play. Once you connect to a server, your FPS will be shown in the lower left corner, in a large white font. This is only for Rust and will not be shown for other games. NVIDIA Control PanelNVIDIA graphic cards are popular among gamers. In case you have one, you can access the NVIDIA control panel by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing the ‘NVIDIA Control Panel’ option.
In the manual installation only the driver does install — but in the driver/software installation package installs all the components of the software and the drivers. Use "perf 2" in console to see accurate fps and memory usage in game .
This game eats RAM like crazy, especially if you start adding DLC and workshop content. Extract the downloaded ZIP file, then run the Setup app in the resulting folder to install the drivers. Windows can seek for drivers or users could download by themselves through official websites mentioned above.
Use task manager to measure RAM usage in game, as other programs outside of rust can cause memory leaks, even things like network driver applications and the like can cause them. Even if you are on a desktop make sure Windows power settings are set to "high performance". First and foremost make sure everything is updated, both Windows side and driver side. Please note, the settings in the images do not reflect the highest performance, these are examples of the options. There can be many overlapping causes for poor FPS, but hardware is the number one cause for low FPS.
Mod author aware, performance issue is being investigated . Graphics cards have a "Shader version" – it determines what features they provide. You can find what version you have in the game log file; search "Shader version" to find it . A simple booster that improves performance of mouse position raycasting, giving 5-15% fps boost. NVMe M.2 SSD drives are currently the fastest choice, but are very expensive and they have limited lifetime (you’ll need to replace them more often).
Our team is actively working on improving performance, fixing bugs, etc. Prop Line Tool fps drop during even when tool is not in use.
They require a modern motherboard that has the M.2 slot, so you need to check if you have that before buying one. Note that some motherboard/processor combinations will reduce graphics performance if you install two or more M.2 drives, so always check your motherboard user guide first. If you are getting errors in your save games, enable these three options and then try loading your save. If it manages to load, create a new save with a new file name, then exit the game to desktop and then load it up again and it should work fine from that point onwards.
Updating the drivers is mandatory. It is not that you play latest games or not but it is better to update drivers since they will be providing numerous performance updates and adding new features with every update.
To prevent throttling, limit the frame rate (yes, I know, crazy, right?) with the "-limitfps" launch option. ), disable any features you don’t use, and consider using most basic settings for "simulation accuracy" and "reckless driving".
