Any reason why my results are so low? I feel like I'm doing something that I shouldn't be.

TF2 only uses two cores.

AMD cores are slow.

Ragdolls enabled stresses the cpu.

These are the reasons.

CPU is really important (TF2 likes high clock rates)

Chris's dx9 fps config also makes a huge difference for me. Here's my result with no config enabled.

2639 frames 24.273 seconds 108.72 fps ( 9.20 ms/f) 5.314 fps variability

CPU and overclock: 2500K @ 4.6 GHz
Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 650 Ti

Resolution: 1920x1080

FPS configs enabled: none (recommended video settings)
Shadows enabled/disabled: enabled

Additional notes: "let the 3d application decide" nvidia settings

35% increase in avg FPS thanks to chris's dx9 fps config.

I have a bizarre issue where my results are dramatically different each time I run the benchmark, without changing any settings.

Below are two results, both taken within minutes of each other, and nothing was changed between them - i.e. nothing in my fps config changed, no more/less processes running.

Most of the time my results will be more lower than higher, but I can't seem to figure out what makes each result so different.

I think something is wrong with my cpu.

crespiI'm have a very strange issue. I loaded up the demo and let it play, everything in the game looked normal and my result came out to an average of 80fps.

Then I tried watching it again a few minutes later, without changing anything in my settings, no windows or heavy processes running, and the game looks like it's almost in slow-motion, and i'm getting no more than 30 fps average.

Can anyone guess what's going on?

you demo setting might've got mixed up, idk but if you have and binds that slow demos down you might've pressed it

perhaps you have a variable clock rate on your CPU, and it lowered the clock rate of everything including your demo... kinda like how people would Overclock CPUs in the past to gain speed hacks in older games.

WaldoEDIT: Ran all tests again, this time with my CPU overclocked to 4.2GHz, got only around 15 more fps, does anyone know why my results are so shitty?

The x1xx series for AMD's FX processors are pretty bad. What resolution do you play on? You might want to save up a $140 and buy a 6300 or a little bit more and get a 8350 in the future because for tf2 the 4100 might not get you the best fps. Though you can always try overclocking more if you feel safe and have a good cooler.

I'm running a Hyper 212, so I can probably OC this to 4.6 or 4.8, the point is that if TF2 only utilizes 2 cores, shouldn't a 4 core CPU @ 4.2 outdo an 8 core CPU @ 3.5?

not coinicidence

Variability does NOT mean standard deviation.

i haven't taken stat in five or so years, I think it is s.d. squared then? which would just make the disparity larger.

No, standard deviation squared would be variance, not variability. I don't think it will be possible for you to find standard deviation in this instance unless you watch like every moment and record your fps at that exact time and do that for every frame.

Yes a 4.2 quad would get higher fps than a 3.5 8 core in this game. Your current CPU is bulldozer based, the ones he suggested are piledriver based which brought slighty faster clock for clock speed(4GHz piledriver is faster than a 4GHz bulldozer).

If this is your main game though I wouldn't bother because the jump from bulldozer to piledriver still wont be anywhere close to what a newer i5 will get you.

looks like cl_threaded_bone_setup 1 nets around a 5-10% increase. good catch

guessing it might be unstable though or they'd set it to 1 in the config

2ci haven't taken stat in five or so years, I think it is s.d. squared then? which would just make the disparity larger.

You're also using the wrong test. You're suppose to be using a 2 sample t-test, not a Population test.

They're also significantly different anyways (you can tell because they're both outside of ~2 stdev of each other, which is basically always enough).

meblooks like cl_threaded_bone_setup 1 nets around a 5-10% increase. good catch

guessing it might be unstable though or they'd set it to 1 in the config

I assume the command just makes bone models it's own separate thread completely, I also assume this command will only give an FPS increase for People with at least 3 threads on their CPU. aka Tri-Core and above.

Since MaxFrames and HighFrames were both made for literally the crappiest PCs which are usually Single/Dual Cores which is great for them but most people use these configs with Quad Cores, and was likely just never optimized for the MaxFPS a Decent PC could get.

My Guess on the matter.

It seems most people got around 10-15fps increase, and the lowest I could see was mine with 7fps increase.
