In most of the PC games and in some console video games there are some normal video settings. But there are also some advanced video game settings, here you’ll know what all these setting do, and what you should do with this settings.
- Vertical Sync (Vsync) – This is an important setting that ties into refresh rate. Without Vsync enabled, your graphics card is free to render frames at a rate higher than your monitor can actually display them. So there will be no screen tear.-> This setting is taxing to the GPU so turn it on if there is screen tear.
- Anti-Aliasing (AA) – Sometimes when you notice an object closely from a game you will see jagged edges around the corner of the objects. AA setting tries to eliminate that jagged edge. There are three kinds of AA setting – FXAA, MSAA and TXAA.-> You can easily keep FXAA or 2xMSAA setting on to eliminate jagged edges because they are least taxing to GPU.
- PhysX – PhysX is all about rendering fancy physics details. This means extra detail in destruction effects like individual shards of shattered glass or detailed cloth objects that flap in the wind or wrap naturally around other surfaces.-> This setting is mostly exclusive to Nvidia GPU’s and if you don’t have a powerfull GPU then you should keep this setting off cause it may cause lag in the gaming.
- Supersampling – This is the most labor intensive GPU task to remove jagged edges. As far as getting rid of jaggies goes, supersampling gives the best result.-> If you don’t have an high-end PC then turn this setting off.
Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO) – Screen space ambient occlusion is a fancy method of simulating the way shadows form around the edges of objects or in the corners of walls. These are “fake” shadows in that they aren’t cast by dynamic lighting.
-> If the PC supports it then turn HBAO+ setting on because it is not that demanding for the GPU.
