Nvidia starts boosting frame rates by up to 10 percent on 30-series GPUs

Posted on

Nvidia has begun to turn out help for Resizable BAR, a component of PCI Express that can support outline rates in specific games by up to 10 percent. The new RTX 3060 designs card is the first to incorporate Resizable BAR, which permits certain CPUs to get to the full illustrations outline cushion, rather than being restricted to perusing simply 256MB squares. Backing for other 30-arrangement GPUs will be accessible in late March.

You’ll require the correct CPU, motherboard, and illustrations card to use this new component, and Nvidia is working with both AMD and Intel to give chipset uphold. AMD’s Zen 3 CPUs are upheld, close by Intel’s tenth Gen processors and the organization’s impending eleventh Gen S chips.

Much like AMD’s Smart Access Memory, Resizable BAR on Nvidia GPUs can boost frame rates in certain games by up to 10 percent. The boost is really game dependent, and resolution can also impact how much performance will increase. “In our testing, we’ve found some titles benefit from a few percent, up to 10 percent,” says Nvidia. “However, there are also titles that see a decrease in performance.”

Nvidia is pre-testing titles and using special game profiles to enable Resizable BAR only where the performance increases. The following games are currently supported:

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • Battlefield V
  • Borderlands 3
  • Forza Horizon 4
  • Gears 5
  • Metro Exodus
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Watch Dogs: Legion

Additional games will be supported in late March, when Nvidia launches VIOS updates for the rest of its 30-series GPUs. Nvidia will supply VBIOS updates for all Founders Edition 30-series cards, and board partners will also release their own updates. You’ll also need a motherboard update that includes the necessary CPU support, and Nvidia says Asus, Asrock, Colorful, Evga, Gigabyte, and MSI have all started supporting Resizable BAR on select motherboards.

Resizable BAR support on the AMD side has been tested widely, and TechSpot found that some games making use of Smart Access Memory could see nearly a 20 percent boost at 1440p and 4K.
