No that's silly. You can easily disable ALL of that. How can you not know that? I even wrote it in my partial guide!!! :bang: Windows 10 uses LESS resources after tweaking than 8.1, which uses less after tweaking than 7. Yes W10 has more garbage on by default, but what does it matter if you can turn it all off? I plan on upgrading to W10 soon and I'll continue my guide from there. Right now, the biggest problem for turu1337 is his model of GPU, and from there the rest of his hardware. There are just some models that have poor DPC latency no matter what. You simply cannot get them low. The rest of the system hardware and software affects latency as well, but make no mistake you can be limited by hardware. Newer isn't always better, but it's more likely to be. I'm sorry I haven't updated the post yet. I've had insomnia for weeks and weeks, staying up for 40 hours, sleeping for 3-6 here and there... and now I'm busy catching up on responsibilities and trying to make money. What little time I have for myself I'm spending on games to relax for now, hopefully next week things will be good again. Sorry for the sob story lol. @vase I'd like to see some screenshots of latencymon showing what's running. That is almost smooth enough to be fictional. I'm not calling you a liar, but I have a hard time believing that that is even possible. r0ach isn't even able to get a dpc latency that low afaik. (He's THE fanatic when it comes to DPC latency).
