Improve your BF4 FPS, Unpark your cores.
« on: November 04, 2013, 01:02:27 AM »


I did this and got about 30 to 50 FPS more depending on the map. On Shanghai I getting about 25 more fps average about 115 now, on Dawn Breaker I am rarely dropping below 175 now.

Xfaxtor has the link to the program in the description.

On a side note Dice did a bunch of patching today and I played for a solid 5 to 6 hours with no freezing and the sound drop out now only lasts a few seconds if you do get it at all.

I saw this on a forum as well yesterday and was trying to decipher what it actually meant. I had no idea Windows worked that way and also don't know if my cores are even 'parked' but I will certainly check it out.

Glad to hear about the sound fix as this has been the major reason I have been crashing so really hoping I will be able to play with fewer issues. Would also be interested to know what was actually causing the 'sound bug' in the first place.

I'd be curious to check this out on my PC tonight as well. I have monitoring software up, showing me the activity in each of my cores, and when I'm playing BF4 all four seem to be firing equally. Not sure if that means that they're "unparked" or if there is some throttling occurring due to "parking." Either way, I'll take a peak as I'm running Win7 64 bit.

I unparked mine and will try it in a while....my question is though how come it only shows two cores....I have an eight core processor?

yeah... so I unparked all.   It did seem to give me a higher average of about +20 fps...however I still dropped down to 48 a couple of times.   It also gave me a little smoother play.

I'm going to give this a shot tonight for sure.  I'll post up results after I've given it a shot across a few games.

I went ahead and ran this process last night.  I had 3 cores of my PC that were "parked".  I didn't notice any improvement in performance myself, but I already had pretty good performance to begin with.  I will say that I played BF4 with absolutely zero hiccups.  No stutter in frame rate or anything like that.  It was only my second session playing the game, so I can't say that it's out of the ordinary to have performance that good.

I tried World of Warcraft and still had graphical stutters in the busiest areas.  I do think I had about a 10-12 FPS improvement in other areas.  Not sure if that was a result of this change, or just me paying more attention.
