Hey whats up guys i’m thiojoe and in this tutorial i’m going to show you how you can more than double the performance of your current graphics card meaning you get higher FPS on basically all games as well as being able to increase the graphics quality as well. Now it’s important to note that this doesn’t even involve overclocking so if you’ve already done that you can do this as well.
So first let me explain how this works and then i’ll show you exactly what you have to do and then we can do a test afterwards to see how much it worked. You see just like how CPUs can be overclocked to unlock their full potential, graphics cards often do not use the full resources they’re capable of by default when the shipped from the factory.
The reason is that graphics cards manufacturers have to guarantee a certain level of performance for every single graphics card before it gets shipped to the consumer but each graphics card is going to differ slightly from the manufacturing process and might not have the same capability of performance, so they lower the baseline performance below what each graphics card usually can, so that.
They’re sure that every graphics card is capable of that certain guaranteed level. This means that almost all graphics cards have additional unused resources they’re just deactivated to match the lowest common denominator of performance. So in this tutorial I’m going to walk you through how you can unlock those extra GPU resources and fortunately this can be done right in windows with no difficulty overclocking required. In fact if you happen to already have.
Overclocked your gpu, you can still do this and unlock those extra resources so you’ll get an even bigger boost in performance than you had before. In most cases I’ve done this and had people try it, it seems like you can usually double the performance of your graphics card which is pretty crazy considering it really is only going to take a couple of minutes. So now let’s head over to the computer and I’ll show you what you have to do.
Ok so here we are in windows 10 but this should work for any version of windows really. The first thing you need to do is go to the Start panel and go to All programs and go down to Windows Administrative Tools and find Performance Monitor don’t mix that up with Resource Monitor, it’s Performance Monitor, and you want to also run that as an administrator, and now we have the performance monitor.
So what we need to do is create a data collector set so this is going to go and collect all the extra resources that are available for the system and we’re going to create one our self, so it’s going to be user defined and we’re going to use this to collect any extra resources that are available in your graphics card and so it will improve the performance.
So first we need to do is go to userdefined we can right click new data collector set and then check create manually we’re going to do this advanced, but I’ll walk you through it. Now you can call this really anything you want let’s just call it Graphics so it’s easy to remember, and then you want to check performance counter and system configuration information.
