1:1 is standard always has been forever, Gear 2 is half ratio 1:2 that's why the latency is so high
Above is 21.7.2 Driver at 1440p same settings
Above is 21.9.1 Driver at 1440p with SAM enabled. Same settings
I'm just wondering why the fps is lower though.
However, this does not look like "same settings".
I am not sure why but it appears since the update the LOD is different. Nothing I can do on my end to fix it. I have object view distance set to high.
It would appear that if I tab out and move a file around (IE: jpegs from folder to desktop) the FPS would spike up. Once I go back into the game. Not sure what the heck that's all about. But it seems to stick after that once I exit and restart the game.
Another thing, Display Color Enhancement: Vivid Gaming (which I always used) appears to be borked. Instead of my desktop getting more saturated/vibrant it gets pale/lighter.
Ok, it appears that the reason for the performance regression in Cold War is do to these updates that have no information on them.
I just got an update today, as usual. But when I started the game the menu was at around 144FPS. I have in game menu set to something else. So, I went into the graphics settings and realized that vsync was enabled. Now, I know I didn't enable vsync, not intentionally nor by accident. So, I disabled it and still noticed my menu fps cap wasn't working. So I went to Customize my fps. And realized it was indeed still set to were I had it before.
So, I played a few matches and realize now, after all this time, I'm getting well over 220+ FPS at 1440p again. Peaking close to 280 FPS at times. So it does appear to me that these updates are playing a role.
Ok, there is more to this saga.
It appears that the Graphics settings get fubar'd after a few updates. So you have to reset it.
I notice that none of my changes were taking effect. After a brief wait on a reset everything started working again.
