Double Your Computer Graphics for Free


Hey whats up guys I’m ThioJoe and in
this video 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 video 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
user-defined 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. You don’t have to check this it doesn’t
matter and create data logs. Next. Then this is what gets a little bit
complicated. First you want to add some performance
counters, so what you wanna do is add and then find remote graphics already right
there “RemoteFX Graphics” and this is basically
going to allow us to modify some of the properties of the GPU and the ones you
want to select are “Frame Quality” so highlight that and click Add. You also
want to do “Graphics Compression Ratio” that’s going to increase the visual
performance of the graphics card by actually compressing it less, so each
frame looks better, and then of course “Output Frames per Second” this is going to increase the FPS in
games overall. So then now those three are selected we
can click OK and then for the sample interval what we want to do is basically set this
as the same as your monitor refresh rate so for me it’s 144 and that’s just going
to set the sample interval for how often to check for this extra quality and
change it. So if you have a 60 Hertz monitor, or 120
Hertz monitor you just put that in there. Click Next and we’re not going to do
anything with the registry so you can click next through that, and then for root
directory just keep that the same doesn’t really matter and then next we can click default and
don’t change that. And now that we created this we can do
“open properties for this data collector set” and click finish and now that’s
going to open this. Or alternatively you can just right
click on this and hit properties and open that that way. So the first thing you need to do in
here we’re going to change some of these properties but it’s not that difficult. The first thing we need to do is add
some keywords and this allows the operating system to know what we are
actually wanting to do with the GPU and which one to increase so if you just
left it like this nothing would happen The first thing you want to do is click
Add and then “GPU” so windows is going to know that were modifying and unlocking a
GPU as opposed to some other maybe integrated graphics or something like
that and then the next thing you want to add is the name of the graphics card. So for me it’s Nvidia GTX 980 and then
finally we need to add the multiplier to see how much we want to actually
increase the performance. So any value between one and two will
work so you can do 1.5 and that would
multiply the graphics by 1.5 power but we’re going to do – that’s the maximum
and if you go above to it wouldn’t do anything anyway but you could do 1.5 for example but
there’s no reason to do anything less than two we want the maximum we can get that’s
the hardware limit. Next we want to go to the… You can click
Apply by the way. Next you can go to Stop Condition. So we
want to check overall duration which determines the cycle length for
increasing the performance, and one second is pretty good actually. If you have a really good computer you
can set it higher maybe to 5, I’ll put it on 3 for now, see how that goes
click apply. And then that’s pretty much it That’s all you have to do for this and then we can click OK. Now what we
need to do is click Graphics so click it in this panel and this is going to show
the different data collectors and what we want to do is click “DataCollector01” performance counter, right click that and hit properties and this is going to
bring up this window here and again you want to make sure the sample interval is
what we entered before it should stay default, and for this you can keep it “binary”, then for maximum samples what we
want to do is multiply the sample interval by 2. So in this case it would be to 288 and we
do that because we’re doubling, we use that multiplier from before. If you were doing 1.5 for example you do
your interval x1.5 put that in here but I’m just going to assume that you’re
putting it on two, there’s no reason not to. And this is just to ensure that there is
enough data to work with it when generating the samples to display, you
want to have a buffer of about two at least. So this should be good enough. If you
have a really slow computer you might want to lower this but you can probably
do 2 and it will be fine. And now we can click ok and that’s it. So now all you have to do is just
restart the computer and then it’s going to autoload the configurations on
startup. If you just tried to do a game right now
it wouldn’t do anything, but after you restart there’s nothing more to do. Ok so now that we did all that we
obviously need to figure out if it worked and how well, so I’m going to do a
before-and-after in a game and we can compare the two so let’s go back to the computer real
quick and do that test. Ok so I’ve loaded up counter strike
global offensive and as you can see I put all the settings on max as high as
they go so this will be pretty strenuous on the
graphics card for a good test so why don’t we go and do a
before-and-after first i’m going to record without the upgrade and then
afterwards we’ll see how much improved hopefully it’ll be a good increase. Ok so
without the upgrade it looks like I’m hovering between 66 and 65 FPS sometimes
going up to even 67 but I have a 144 Hertz monitor so that’s really not
good enough so I’d have to lower the settings unless
we can somehow raise that FPS. If you had a 60 Hertz monitor that’d be fine but
hopefully we can get above 144 for at least with the upgrade so why don’t we go and change that and
do the upgrade and i’ll come back and see what it looks like afterwards. Now i’m back in the game after doing the
upgrade and I can already see that the FPS is way higher topping into the 160s
170s even. Way better than before, which was in the 60s. I think this is probably closer to
tripling not even doubling so now i should have no problem running
CS:GO on max settings even with that higher FPS, so clearly
this worked and got a great result out of it. So there you have it we saw a huge
increase in the FPS and performance even on the highest settings and that was
just one game this is going to increase the
performance of the GPU overall so it’s going to increase the
performance of all games. So if you’ve been thinking about getting a new shiny
graphics card you may try this and find out you don’t even need to and if you do
have a new graphics card it’s going to work even better. I hope
this worked for you guys I’d be interested to hear down in the comments
section how it went if you’ve got a huge increase may be a
more moderate increase you can let us know down in the comments
section below. Also if you liked this video and found it helpful be sure to
give it a thumbs up so I know you liked it If you want to continue watching I’ve
got some other tutorials on the right hand side you can just click those or
look in the description for the same link like if you’re on a phone and if
you want to subscribe I make new videos monday wednesday
