Render Scale: much different experience from same FPS?

  • Been playing on automatic (83%). I tried scaling up to 100%, and I noticed everything felt significantly less smooth and responsive. There's almost no FPS difference between the two setting. I get a solid 120 on both auto 83 and 100, so why does the game feel so much worse at 100? Thanks!
  • Hello AlexInc!

    Without looking at performance graphs, I can't say for certain, but usually what happens in a case like yours is the difference between the GPU buffering one frame (~100% busy) vs the GPU being able to keep up with the current frame (<100% busy).

    In both cases, the frame rate is the same, however in the buffered case, you'll get an extra frame of input lag, which can sometimes be felt like you are pointing out.

    Thanks!
