A small but useful (could be) tip for increasing your FPS

Recommended Posts

So this is based on my personal experience in the past few days, not sure if this could work for you, but it's worth a try:


Two days ago when I opened DCS and played on some MP servers, I noticed a significant FPS decrease from what I usually get before. In all maps, my FPS ranges from 30-60 fps and was getting some annoying stuttering. It got my attention because I can usually run DCS in MP and get about 70-100 FPS in all maps (1080P, High settings, MSAA x2, Nvidia control panel MFAA on). I have tried all methods but none of them was working. 


So I decided to clean the dust in my PC, and guess what? FPS went back to normal! 90-110 FPS in Caucasus map MP servers. 70-100 FPS in Persian Gulf. 


My Spec:

I7 7700k 


32GB Ram



Hope this could help some people. Cheers!

I am running a little less than that. AMD Ryzen 7, 2700X, Asus Tuf GTX 1660 Super, 32 GB Ram DDR4 16500, SSD. Track IR.

Can almost run that quick in Syria mostly high/ultra similar setting (no DLSS) but a couple of things to help like you mention - non heat or cleanliness related, module settings.

Over Syria, the A-10 will chew way more FPS with the TGP/MAV screen MFD's up, and mirrors as opposed to the F-16 who's MFD's are simple with no moving maps. So in the A-10 I will flip up the mirrors, and only run the TGP and MAV Sensor screens when necessary - gives you back at good 10 to 15 FPS, no settings changed in the A-10C and high to ultra settings on the Syria map. Other maps benefit a bit, but not as drastic.
