Tweak Your Nvidia Settings to get More FPS in CS2

This quick guide will demonstrate how to boost your FPS by tweaking Nvidia settings.

To access the Nvidia settings, right-click on your desktop and select Nvidia Control Panel.  Click on Manage 3D settings in the left side panel. Here, you will find all the settings that need to be adjusted.

Nvidia Control Panel Settings

Low Latency Mode

First, scroll down and locate Low Latency Mode. This setting controls how many frames the CPU prepares in advance before sending them to the graphics card. Change the setting to Ultra. When set to Ultra, the CPU sends the maximum amount of frames to the GPU. This results in lower input lag and higher FPS.

Shader Cache Size

Next, locate the Shader Cache Size. This setting improves the smoothness of CS2 by storing graphic information, such as lighting, shadows, textures, and other visual effects. Change the setting to Unlimited. When set to unlimited, you maximise the amount of graphical information the game can retrieve from the cache, without compiling it again.

Power Management Mode

Lastly, find the Power Management Mode. This setting controls how much power that goes to all PC components, including the graphics card. Switch the setting to Prefer Maximum Performance. By doing so, you tell the graphics card to operate at its maximum performance, regardless of how much power it uses.

The impact of these settings on FPS will vary depending on your hardware configuration. The changes may not always lead to significant improvements and, in some cases, may cause the FPS to drop. Therefore, monitor how each setting affects the FPS and adjust accordingly
