Re: [Power/EMI] I discover why sometime PC become fast and low input lag and otherwise feel high input lag

Just a question for everyone, regardless if you think this is about power/emi or about internet. What would be the reason behind things clearly improving (gaming wise) in winter, when there is lots of snow and low temperatures ? And the exact opposite happening in the hot summer ? One interesting t...

Re: [Power/EMI] I discover why sometime PC become fast and low input lag and otherwise feel high input lag

Another issue that can be solved by using a VPN is when an ISP sends out of order UDP packets to a game server. I spent quite some time troubleshooting issues with jitter and packet loss to servers hosted in AWS. I eventually found threads of many Fortnite players (FN is hosted in AWS) reporting pa...

Re: Gaming VPN Experiences Thread [Help Internet Lag]

More on the out of order packets issue, which looks more and more like the root cause behind everything and ISP's network resilience, devices & configuration being the main culprit behind poor UDP packet handling: "Out of Order Packets" thread @ reddit ... Essentially this is packet loss, even thoug...

Re: Gaming VPN Experiences Thread [Help Internet Lag]

The problem is you are not taking into account ping compensation if you go from 10ms without VPN to 40-50ms with VPN. To rule this out you would need one more test + add latency without VPN and test this vs VPN with same end latency. I see plenty of players not having these issues, regardless of th...

Re: Gaming VPN Experiences Thread [Help Internet Lag]

Some older engines discarded out-of-order packets that are solved by a gaming-friendly VPN. Exactly the same thing happens in, most likely all, both newer & older FPS games & engines. The FPS games i have been playing in the last two decades: CS 1.6 CS:GO Overwatch PUBG Black Squad Apex Legends For...

Re: [Power/EMI] I discover why sometime PC become fast and low input lag and otherwise feel high input lag

Amazing, you went years suspecting its internet without actually looking into it or checking that you are getting out of order packets. Anyone who had this problem since early 2000's knew 100% it was internet from the start, because back then there were certain things that still could be done (on A...

Re: [Power/EMI] I discover why sometime PC become fast and low input lag and otherwise feel high input lag

i ask myself right now why there still no tools for gamers that shows what the issue is and what is going wrong... it's crazy that such things still don't exist... Gaming is still a niche market compared to everything else. the server probably must have some data and can tell more about hitreg, del...
