I know there are a lot of fps guides and optimizations and different fps fixes (I probably tried them all) but after a year of testings through multiple patches I think I came up with the best settings I could.
I focused my settings around a few main points:
- Having smooth game play (feeling like running 144 fps without actually getting it)
- No input lag
- Getting high fps
By that order I reached settings which I think are the best I've got so far,
the game runs super smooth to me (feels like 144hz constantly) – which in turn increase visibility of players.
I will try to share all the settings / changes I've done in order to reach this, try it as a whole and let me know how it goes for you.
Nvidia on Escape from tarkov app:
Nvidia General (notice the image sharpening):
Resolution (output dynamic range – full) – no need to do ghostfreek66 resolution fix:
Colors (for visibility in dark and to distinguishing players):
In game settings:
HDR turn off – local.ini:
go into: "C:Users*you user name*DocumentsEscape from Tarkov" directory
and edit local.ini, set "Hdr" to 0.
On "C:Battlestate GamesEFTEscapeFromTarkov.exe" right click and choose properties -> Compatibility -> Check disable fullscreen optimizations and change high dpi settings (high dpi override to application)
Enable windows game mode – on
On AMD Ryzen Master:
Use auto overclocking (higher clock for a single core is better for tarkov)
In bios: Turn on / push the highest you can on the XMP memory profile.
Clear all you nvidia / game cache before you test the settings.
My game experience:
The game feels constantly as it is running at 144 fps (although it reaches 100-140 fps depend on the map).
There are no stutters.
You own player movement feels a lot move smooth.
Smooth experience on all the maps (tested all of them)
Nvidia 2070 super
32GB ram 3200
the colors in nvidia are optional and you can change them to whatever you like
Forgot to add process priority fix that I use, will update later
