FPS Limiter Broken? Massive GPU Coil Whine

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey guys,

 

Just wanted to raise that the FPS limiter is not working in my client.

 

I have set it to 60 FPS, as I have a 60Hz monitor with FreeSync (paired with an AMD Vega 56), and the FPS is literally at 1,200 during loading and 600-700 during gameplay.

 

My GPU is coil whining like crazy from pushing all these frames.

 

I also tried forcing V-SYNC via my GPU control panel (AMD Adrenaline) to cap frames at 60, but still no go.

 

Also tried 30, 40, 50 FPS but nothing... Any advise on this?

 

Could it be a broken feature? Am I doing something wrong?

 

Thanks a lot

 

Adding some details in case it helps narrow down the case

 

Launcher: 3.1.1.2

Build: 1.0.7.6

GPU: Vega 56

Display Size: 3840x2160

After some research I found a pretty sweet solution.

 

You can use Rivatuner (RTSS). This is a very frequently used piece of software in conjunction with MSI Afterburner for monitoring FPS, temperatures and clock speeds of hardware mid game etc. This is usually done with an OSD (On-Screen Display).

 

There is an option called Framerate Limit, with which you can cap the FPS at whatever number you like.

 

You can also hide the OSD, so that it won't show stats when you don't need it to.

 

Cheers all
