  1. We are talking about your ray tracing emulation and RTX card bad performance in general statements. You owning RTX card doesn't make those statements true and the "you have no clue" still applies for those statements. Btw, you have 70ish fps in populated areas at 1080p, 1440p or 4k?
  2. @Grimoir literary what @Fufia said. You have no clue what you're talking about. RTX cards don't emulate ray tracing if the game doesn't have Ray tracing option in it's settings. RTX cards have poor performance with ray tracing on in games that support it, and currently only 2 or 3 games have ray tracing support. And that's only if you turn the ray tracing option on in the games settings. With ray tracing off, RTX cards outperform their previous generations counterparts. @CrimsonDusk i too have a RTX card and have similar issue. I have done everything i could find in BnS forums to boost the performance. Even some Win 10 layout scaling (for the one recommending it - it was already 100%) setting BS. In heavily populated areas (like Mushin tower during peak online time), raids, Outlaw Island 4th boss area, i have 40-50ish fps while GPU usage sits somewhere between 40-50%. In some areas it goes up to 60-70%, but doesn't seem to be related with how many ppl are around. And i have tried with low/medium/high/max settings, always the same. I too have a feeling that RTX cards themselves have a problem with BnS, or specifically, the RTX driver. Just to make it clear, some of the recommendations helped a bit, but don't expect 60+ fps in areas where you currently have horrible fps. What i have tried: BnS buddy Multicore enhancement - helped a bit overall. BnS buddy class animation disabling (of classes that you don't play) - helped considerably in raids and dungeons. Nvidia BnS profile fix - helped a bit overall. High priority for BnS process - helped a bit overall. Nvidia driver Physix processor to GPU - helped a bit overall. Assigning specific cores to BnS - no changes and 1st point does it better. Windows layout scaling setting - no changes. Uninstalling/Disabling Bluetooth driver/device - no changes. Might have missed some "recommended" performance fixes, but those should more or less cover it.
  3. @OP You can try bnsbudy, it seems to have a fix loading screen issues option, it might help you without any purchases. @Racingwind Tried bnsbuddy, now i get 70-90 in heavily populated areas, haven't tried raids atm. But the GPU usage jumps from 45% to 70%, so it also rises the bar of resource limit used by BnS. With the options provided by @Fiana (much appreciated), 1070ti/1080 should be enough to max BnS at 1440p an have a smooth fps (still have to check raids). Updated: Haha, no, there were just too few ppl online. 30-40 fps in Mushins Tower when there are a lot of ppl. and gpu usage stays at 45% there. Might be really RTX related. Same in MSP.
  4. Have heard about it on multiple occasions. I don't feel particulary comfortable by having to enter login credentials in a 3rd party software to run BnS. But it seems to have source code available, will review it to see if i can find anything fishy and make my decision based on that.
  5. So it might be RTX related. How's your GPU usage? Does it go up to 100%? Max settings 1440p or 1080p?
  6. I don't do raids often, but i did BT yesterday, the method provided in video didn't improve much in that area, was getting mostly 30-40 fps, might have jumped to 45, but i didn't pay that much attention to it at that moment, simply disabled other characters instinctively with Ctrl F and went on with the raid. Those 60+ are only in heavily populated areas. In dungeons, less populated areas and raids with disabled characters i get constant 120 fps with the same gpu(45-55%)/cpu(20-30%) usage as in heavily populated areas. I still have to test Koldrak. Previously my fps dropped below 60 there even with other characters disabled there. In any case, the glaring issue with BnS is that available resource usage doesn't rise when fps drops. Though i can't guarantee that the cause isn't with RTX series themselves, after all they are rather fresh. We would need someone with 1080 ti to confirm that for him/her the gpu also sins't fully utilized. All of the above was at max settings, 1440p.
  7. Outside of loading screens my cpu usage stays at something like 25%. I'm talking about the loading screen itself, i sometimes get 100% during loading screen, so your case might be related to CPU. It's not necessary to install OS on your SSD, but your OS would work a lot faster if it was installed there. FYI, try to keep 20-30% of your SSD free for longevity. The fuller they are for prolonged periods of time, the faster they die.
  8. It most probably will, but it isn't guaranteed. It only will only help if the issue is caused due to slow read speed from hdd. If it's a different cause... For example, it could also be CPU, i have even seen my 8700k spike to 100% usage during BnS loading screen, that's the only time i have seen my CPU at 100% (except for stress test). @Racingwind You no grandpa of mine! The video helped considerably, at Mushins Tower and Jadestone Village i sometimes drop to low 50s for short moments, but mostly it's above 60 in those areas. GPU usage 45-55%, vram usage a bit bellow 2 gB at max settings 1440p. So 3 gB of vram isn't limiting BnS, i was wrong about that. But my estimation stands. 1070 is enough to max BnS at 1440p (as long as the other hardware parts are appropriate) and play at the same fps as 2080 ti. Reason being that if you google 1070 vs 2080 ti, you will see that 2080 ti is only ~100% faster than 1070. So, while the math is rather ruf, the general point is that 1070 at 100% = 2080 ti at 50%. The necessity of 1080ti/2080 to play BnS at max settings on 1440p is BS. P.S Can provide screens with my gpu usage, if necessary.
  9. CPU+GPU would give you the most gain. SSDs only impact your loading times, not your fps. But make sure you get an adequate CPU cooler, else you will have a bad time :)
  10. To give some feedback to OP. Your upgrade paths are rather tricky. The expensive ways: Get a current-ish gen CPU with ~4 GHz, but in that case you also have to change your motherboard and RAM. But going this way, you should pretty much consider a new PC. Cheep way, but somewhat bothersome way: Your motherboard should support 2nd and 3rd gen i3/i5/i7 CPUs (but make sure your bios is updated), so scourge your available resources for used i7-2700k/i7-3770k (while i doubt you have a OC motherboard, the K CPUs have a little higher base frequency, it should help a bit over the non-K versions). You shouldn't have to change RAM. GPU wise, as long as you play in 1080p, i would recommend upgrading to at least 1060 6gB. The market should still be flooded with used 1060 cards from the crypto mining craze, so you should be able to find used one cheaply. RAM wise, you should be okay with 8 gB of ram. 16 gB is recommended new days, but 8 gB is bearable.
  11. Mine is also 1440p :) But yeah, leaving resolution out of the conversation was unprofessional from both of our sides. It's a major factor in gaming performance.
  12. Will try the link after work. And if the GPU usage will get anywhere close to 100%, i'll apologise for calling BS on your statement and call you even my grandpa! Aside from that, judging from my own experience, GPU wise you should be able to max out BnS with 1070, worst case 1080. 1060 should do very well, in your case the problem should 3 gB of vram, the 6 gB vram version does a lot better in games. My only beef was 1080 ti/2080 for high/ultra. I see no issue with the rest of your statements.
  13. The link is much appreciated, thank you very much!
  14. That you need 1080 ti or 2080 to play on ultra. As i stated, BnS uses max 50% of my gpu, i'm pretty sure it doesn't have 100% gpu usage on 1080 ti or 2080. I'm well aware that you can get better fps, you just have to play around with settings till you get satisfactory fps in raids and heavily populated areas. But that is no longer Ultra/max settings.
  15. BS. I7-8700k 2080 ti 32 gB ram Win 10 64 bit SSDs only. On max settings GPU usage max 50%. In raids and heavily populated areas fps 20-40. BnS has pis poor optimization and your hardware won't change that. You can improve your performance but there is a limit to it as the game simply doesn't even bother to fully utilize the resources available.
