Solved

CS:GO Fps isn't as it should be.

I have an Intel Core 2 quad q9400 @ 2.7 ghz. I have 8 gbs of RAM, a GTX 950. I've seen people with less powerful PCs run the game with 120+ fps. No matter what settings I use, I get around 70-90 fps. Other games run seamlessly. Also, I have used almost every launch option possible and nothing has really helped, other than -high. Anyone know what this could be?

  1. What's your PSU? What are your temps (CPU and GPU)? Try disabling all power savings features in the bios and set power mode under Windows to full power. Also, 70 - 90 fps is great, there's nothing to worry about.

  3. I can't get my temps at the moment. But I know for sure they never get very high. And my Psu is a 365w. But my system only ever pulls 270w max

    I was getting 200+ with HD6770 and q9550, so there for sure is something wrong going on...

    Any idea as to what it could possibly be? It could be that because you have a 9550 which is 3.0 Ghz and CSGO is very CPU dependant, that that's why it helps. But I have no idea as to what it could be
  6. It's just frustrating because I feel like I should at least get 100+. And I don't ugh

    Nah, 120 fps difference is too much, if it was like 30 I would maybe say that it is clock difference problem.
    Anyway, check on what clock GPU and CPU work while in game using MSI Afterburner.

    Well when I used CPUZ everything looked as it should I believe. But I may be wrong

    The GPU Temp stayed around 48 C and the clocks were at 1204 and 1334 ish. Something around that. I have no idea what the problem is.

    Maybe that is the sign that clocks are not as high as they should be;
    check clocks for cpu while in game

  14. Did you try unparking the cores?
    That helped me to gain more FPS;
    Here is the video clip on how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fKxZ1mq9KA

    Yeah. It didn't really do anything. Although the program only showed 2 cores and they both said "Unparked"

    Have you tried launch option with number of threads 4 ?(I hope you know what I mean)
    EDIT: I saw you mentioned launch options, but anyways..

    Yeah I'm currently using it. Maybe because the age of this CPU, it just doesn't work all that well with this game. Idk. I have noticed, though, the CPU usage is usually only at 4-8 percent

    Well that is the problem, I don't know why would it sit on 5% :/
    Age is not the problem tho

    Try disabling -threads # from the launch options and enable multicore from ingame settings.

    Ok I'll try that. I already have the multicore rendering enabled. So I'll take out the threads command

    So I did that and the CPU usage stayed between 3.7 and 4.4 percent
  25. Best answer
    Before you compare and set an expectation, do you have info on the other systems that claimed to have 120fps?
    You also mentioned other games run seamlessly, what games are those?
    Have you bench tested your system?
    With the info you given, I'd say start with resetting cs settings and clear launch.
    If no go, double check nvidia global settings and cs:go settings,drivers.
    Install fresh csgo.
    Playing in Fullscreen could give more fps but most likely not the solution. I assume you have changed 'fps_max x'

    Ultimately i think you should overclock the cpu just a bit if you have hardware to support. its free performance unused. That being said, its an old cpu about a decade old so if its an option maybe consider getting a new computer that can keep up with ur needs. You can find deals on 2nd and 3rd gen intel full rigs for a few hundred.
