Re: Some mysterious effects on gameplay

The single memory stick thing seems interesting, you're saying that gameplay feels better by just using 1 single-channel memory stick? What if you used a single dual-channel stick? So does that mean if you bought say 2x8GB dual channel sticks, without limiting the RAM, so you'd end up with 16GB, wh...

Re: Some mysterious effects on gameplay

I have comprehensive list to reduce your input lag to minimum, you wanna check this: <ad link> I have actually gone through your guide and some other guides in the past. Most of the items are good while there is one key thing I don't agree. I have seen in multiple game communities - new players pla...

Re: Some mysterious effects on gameplay

Update - tl;dr - I found out a big factor for difference between single vs dual memory is ... memory size The memory kit is 2x8G and dual channel will have 16G total. I limited the memory size to 8G using "bcdedit /set truncatememory", and the gameplay starts to feel significantly snappier. This rec...

Re: WANTED: Software Developers: We need a Gaming VPN client with BUILT IN NETWORK LATENCY DE-JITTERING [BountySource]

It might be better to just send every packet twice, as it's likely that one of the packets doesn't suffer from latency spike. It eliminates most of the latency spike while giving the additional benefit of ending at the lower side instead of the higher side of latency variation. A typical gaming sess...

Some mysterious effects on gameplay

I've learnt a lot in this forum and improved my gameplay by magnitudes. However there are things that I didn't see discussions about and hard to explain. They also improve gameplays by a lot - I wouldn't say input lag here because I don't have measurements, but it should be a mix of things including...

Re: Gaming VPN Experiences Thread [Help Internet Lag]

I built my own proxy for playing an ancient game hosted in China from west US. I would call it a proxy because it's not a VPN but it helps with internet lag. There are some interesting findings. The biggest advantage a gaming VPN, or an alternative network stack brings is actually from software opti...

Re: Placebo or a possibility? USB ports and mouse feel.

My mobo has a ASMedia USB 3.1 port which should be similar to a PCIe USB card. I tried to connect keyboard to that port and it's worse than the port from Intel chipset. So at least a random card may not help - we need cards that are proven to be good, as requested in this post . And because of the p...

Re: Placebo or a possibility? USB ports and mouse feel.

I had similar findings with USB keyboards - yeah I mainly play games with high frequency keyboards :D I use the ASRock Z170 Gaming-ITX/ac mobo. Here's my experience: 1. The USB settings in BIOS does affect latency. Legacy USB support: On - lag Auto - no lag, and keyboard works in both BIOS and grub ...

How can I disable HPET in bios? I have a Z390 mainboard and there is no option. CPU is 9700k.
Note that HPET and Hyper-threading (in OP) are different things.

Re: Sounds that reduce input lag

It is very likely that the frames are computational heavy when the "sound" occurs, because they are more complex. When all forms of V-Sync is disabled, this can reduce the frame rate and make queues (e.g. pre-rendered frames) shorter. When some kind of V-Sync is enabled, this can reduce the time to ...
