Stat indicator for when game is cpu vs gpu capped

Recommended Posts

I know there is stat fps and that stuff, but I would like an easier way to see whether you are being cpu capped of capped by the gpu regarding the fps. I am thinking a new command that just displays maybe text "gpu" or "cpu" for the moment. Maybe also a % ratio average them between would be nice. I know there are game vs draw thread times but I feel it is somewhat complicated to actually know that you understand them correctly. I think an indicator like this would make it much easier for people to know whether they should buy a new cpu or a new gpu. I think it would be quite nice and easy to implement as well.

Completely pointless, the game shouldn't be telling you what hardware to buy xD

They are somewhat difficult to read and interpret, especially when running around.

With the level of mental capacity that the average squad player has, I somehow doubt it's an issue. 

 

The numbers also go yellow & red when your frames get "bad" and "shit" respectively :)

You can use Afterburner combined with HWinfo and going further log desired Data and pack them up in a Calc sheet so you can make fancy Diagramms that show a correlation between Core usage , GPU usage Frametimes and so on.

Offcourse you need to know how to interpret certain Data to come to a conclusion.

I think thats also Psyrus point no one wants a game thats telling you what to buy by showing GPU/CPU without an inside on the raw data to keep it transparent .

Or devs can implement it in 5 seconds so everyone else don't have to do it. Game won't tell you what to buy. Silly argument.

Is there still need for that stuff since 9.9???

 

*statunit and look to the colors of GPU and Game

Green=evrything is fine

Yellow=something is bad

Red=you're in real trouble
