PSA Low FPS Fix: Integrated graphics may be slowing down your machine.

Hi all

Had a couple of cases this morning where people’s integrated graphics were taking control and making people’s games run slow.

Below is a fix for Intel/Nvidia owners. If anyone wants to post an AMD version I’ll add it here.

In the NVIDIA Control Panel, under the 3D Setting > Manage 3D Setting

On the right side of the screen

Select the Global Setting tab
under “Prefer graphic processor” Select “High Performance NVIDIA Processor”

Now click on the Program setting tab

click on “Add” and navigate to wherever directory your game is installed and select the exe file for your game.

Then click on “Open” and after you done the adding, under the 2. Select prefer graphic processor for this program select “High Performance NVIDIA Processor” then click “Apply”

If you reddit as well as Rust, I run the Reddit Rust Community. All welcome :slight_smile:

Hope this helps!

What windows do you have ?
I have Win. 7 And I no have this option ;/

This wasn’t from my own problems with the game. Just information I gathered while helping others.

Post your DxDiag and I can take a look :slight_smile:

Do you have an Nvidia or AMD/Ati card?

You disable integrated graphics via BIOS, not your GPU Control panel - because if you do anything to the drivers installation wise then whatever problem you’re having can probably re-initiate (also I’ve never heard of this happening)

Do anything like this via BIOS only

Telling people to mess with their BIOS over a forum for gamers and not techies is a recipe for disaster.

Just because you haven’t heard of it happening, doesn’t mean it isn’t :wink:

I have Nvidia and I have all cfg options to “false”

You’re missing a fair amount of the DxDiag.

Do you have an option to access your Nvidia control panel? If so, take a screenshot of it.
