Nobody can handle too much of an FPS drop or stuttering while playing a competitive online game like CSGO. While it is obviously acceptable to an extent, sometimes, you just have to do something about it. In this article, we will help you understand what may be causing your CSGO to be dropping FPS and stuttering.
In the In-game settings, change your display mode to Fullscreen under the Video tab. You may also want to lower the resolution of your game from its current setting from the same tab, to allow for smoother running. Make sure laptop power savings is disabled. Under the Advanced Video section, ensure your Global Shadow Quality is Low, and other settings here are also lowered from their current level. The most notorious settings here are Effects Detail and Shader Detail, so make sure you get those two lower. Let the Multicore Rendering be left on Enabled, and Uber Shaders on Auto.
Open up your task manager by right-clicking the taskbar. Here, while CSGO is running, right-click on the application and select Go to Details. Now, right-click the application once again and choose Set Priority and set it to High or above. This is bound to better your performance.
Go into the Steam Library and right-click on CSGO. Here, select properties. You will find the option to edit its Launch Options. Type in the following here to ensure the game is launched at optimal settings for it to run smoothly: “+cl_showfps 1 -novid -nojoy +r_dynamic -console +fps_max 300 -high -autoconfig”.
Under the Local Files tab in the game’s properties, you can verify the integrity of your game files to ensure that you are running the latest and a sound version of CSGO.
