PC Performance Tips

Heed this critical intel, Scrubs. Optimize your PC for the best experience!

Trunkletron’s RTX3090 preferred settings (including recording 4k 60p to disk)

Regardless of your PC specs, choose 30fps or 60fps in the FPS setting.

✅ Make sure your screen resolution setting matches your monitor.

✅ Fullscreen mode is generally best, but not in all cases.

✅ You may need to brighten your Gamma slightly from default.

✅ VSYNC: ON can help improve performance, but not in all cases.

✅ Tune your individual graphics settings to taste. If streaming or recording, you may want to choose slightly lower settings than you normally would (Trunkletron uses all ‘High’ for his RTX3090)

👀 Currently, MetalCore is better optimized for NVIDIA hardware.
