Default FPS bump by disabling GameDVR in Windows 10 via registry

This article may help out a good number of you who might be experiencing sub par performance with VR or even 2D setups

https://windowsreport.com/windows-10...6bw3xHS9WOXb6U

"To understand it better, when you run a game in exclusive fullscreen mode, the image goes from the game directly to your screen. After the update, the game is first rendered, then goes through Windows Desktop, and then to the screen.

This leads to input lag and performance issues in many games."

I have created the required .reg file for those who want to try this out, it has been tried and tested by many people and everyone I have spoke to have seen a rise in performance, especially those with VR.

simply download this file and double click it and allow it to modify registry then reboot, it will add the entries as seen in the screenshot attached below.

Is it a performance benefit, if Game Mode already disabled in System Controls?

The game mode switch and this registry edit seem to function differently to each other, try it and see.

Thanks, I tought that my Windows 10 LTSC didnt had that Game Mode, but checked the registry keys and found that it was indeed enabled ... so, I'm giving your tip a try ... will report back if the results were notorious or not.

not had a chance to try DCS yet but this has had a noticeable effect in the "the outer worlds".

so thanks for the heads up

OK, just had a chance to test and can report that, on 1080p DCS I'm seeing an around a 50% increase on FPS on average, without altering a single graphics setting on my DCS ... so, a really worthwhile tuning.


I will soon test on VR and complete the report
