    Hmm, I think I'm gonna stick with EVGA Precision XOC. It's never given me problems so I'll quote the old saying: "If it ain't broke don't fix it."

    No it works.

    Ps I already exchanged that physx file and it didnt fix stutter.. :(

    I had to change 4 more .dll files to get it working properly not just physx dll.

    First time coming across this thread (came via nVidia forum). Does anyone use this on Windows 10 and are there any benefits whatsoever in games? And what type of games see benefit?

    You can read not so many 10 pages of thread to discover games which benefit.
    In short any program with lot of memory activity (with chunks more than 4K) should benefit.

    Why do you say that? I re-read the article and x64 platform is there. This is not about bits, this is about physical-virtual memory mapping which is happening for any processes.

    Ah ok, even better.

    I though it was just like PAE to extend beyond 4gb limitation by 32bit apps

    Could this have any performance impact in other applications (such as browsers, etc) or is it "locked" to games in specific?

    The more memory allocations application has the more boost it should gain. This tweak just reduces the amount of virtual => physical memory translations due to bigger physical pages.

    Thanks @mbk1969

    Not quite related to this thread but i think you should create some thread or have a site (like an host with a folder in it?) where you made your little (but precious) tools available (like a repository). I've seen a couple from you (i use the MSI one, and used the compatibility flags as well) and sometimes they are a bit lost in old threads. It should make people's life easier :rolleyes:

    Just a thought :)

    @disq
    Well, I listed all tools on my profile page at the "Information" tab. Only pinned threads remain in site. I am humble about these tools - none of them are a life saver, just little helpers.

    I didn't know about that "Information" tab, it does the job indeed. Thanks for developing them and making them available with such ease! Cheers :)

    Thx my dudes this fixed my Call of Duty Warzone stuttering.
    I also changed VideoMemoryScale = 0.01 in adv_options.ini from Documents\Call of Duty Modern Warfare\players
    For Windows 10 Home Edition you need to enable GPEdit for this to work.
    use the guide from here : https://www.itechtics.com/enable-gpedit-windows-10-home/
    use Method 2 .
    You may also need to enable Lock pages in memory using secpol.msc (run it as admin).
    If your user account does not have enough privileges do this:
    Security settings then Local Policies User Rights Assignment folder.
    The policies will be displayed in the details pane.
    In the pane, double-click Lock pages in memory.
    In the Lock pages in memory dialog box if your username does not appear click Add User or Group, Advanced Find Now and select your username then ok and ok.
    restart the pc.
    You may also need to go to your game.exe click properties and tick Run as Administrator in the Compatibility tab.

    This needs to be a sticky.
