Re: Reduce Input Delay (Mouse & Keyboard Buffer Size)

Negative sensitivity is an exciting subject. Some considerations: 1: If FPS and Hz are not harmonically updated; it will not feel like 1:1 2: Do the game use an async thread to read mouse inputs? 3: The way the CPU is being limited may affect the IO. 3.1 Is the CPU 100% busy? 3.2 Do it have an FPS c...

Re: Low latency mode (CSGO)

You can benchmark GPU bottlenecks with FrameView. A high GPU usage will mean that the GPU will use a queue on the Frames that the CPU time is shorter than the GPU time. Plot the Render Queue Depth and verify the % of frames where this value is above > 1. If it's significant, then ULL can help you, a...

Re: Reduce Input Delay (Mouse & Keyboard Buffer Size)

I'm not going to mention his test methodology, which prefers to run dozens of small tests 1 time, totally messing the distinction between signal and noise. Also, many of his input delay tests use actions that depend on animation-delay or are tied to tickrate. Just press ESQ, toggle the TAB, change ...

Re: Reduce Input Delay (Mouse & Keyboard Buffer Size)

I asked him to open Perfmon in the comment to check the C-State in use, and I even mentioned that "disable idle" helps in the cases of Windows ignoring the "disable C-State" or "max C state" bit flag from Bios. With Perfmon, we could check if it was already in C0 from the Bios; if that was the case,...

Re: input lag in games - i found my source

Snake oil. I have a Macbook Pro 2020 16" with a VRM mod. Fixed CPU (i9 9880H 8C/16T @ fixed at 3.8ghz) and GPU clock (at 1450 MHz in p0). My input lag @ HumanBenchmark is 136ms (@ LG C9), so no major input lag source affects it. The power savings is forcing everything off using PowerSavingExplorer f...

Re: Reduce Input Delay (Mouse & Keyboard Buffer Size)

The most significant inconsistency people are feeling is caused by the C-State messing things up. Windows don’t respect the Bios flag for some models. Also the PowerPlans are not fully optimised to use “C1 only”, not even the Ultimate and the Bitsum. How to check: You can check the amount of time in...

Re: Input lag and fluidity under 60fps

Disable Processor Idle gave me the best 60hz experience. I already had C-States disabled, core park, fixed clock, etc. This lowered my fps in CSGO but gave a highly improved mouse response, especially when we have a capped frame-rate. Totally playable. 1- Run CMD as admin: 2- powercfg -attributes SU...

Re: Optimization Hub for beginners

Some of the stuff seems pretty hokey but hey, an open minded person who measures the results empirically will learn more than a closed minded person. But to do that you need actual objective tools, not "feel". For instance, one of your links is to custom resolutions (https://www.monitortests.com/fo...

Re: Dell Alienware AW2521HF VS. ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN review by RTINGS

It would be fair to compare the AW2521H with PG259QN or PG259QNR, THE AW2521HF is completely different.
