csgo is broken, that's all
set all configs to maximum... 250+ FPS guaranteed
broken engine at it's finest
I'm not an expert but I think really it's a limitation of the Source engine, it doesn't utilize modern hardware as well as some new stuff. Add to that the high tickrate compared to most other shooters today.
With that said 160fps is not low at all. If it's stable you'll do perfectly fine even with a 144hz monitor. Don't bitch about 160fps in a game thats mostly played by kids with 5+ year old hardware.
CSGO uses like 2 cores from your cpu, maybe 4, so having many cores is bad. Better with 4 cores that have higher capacity per core.
i5 2500K 1050X 16GB 250-350 o.O? cs is on SSD
well wanted 2 buy 7600k i5 but i can run shit w/ it so
did you set fps 0 or 350?
if 350 try 0
Do you have a dual or single channel ram?
It's just a terribly optimized game. Pretty much as well optimized as emulating a PS2 game. It only uses 2 of the 4 or 8 cores that you have.
csgo is optimized for cpu usage mostly, and for single core performance optimization on intel.
Sauce engine wont use more than 4 cores by default, and will use 1st physical core the most (core 0)
What you can do is when you are in game, CTRL+ALT+DEL, fgo to details, find csgo.exe, right click , set affinity and uncheck core 0. You will see more usage of other cores and slight performance boost on your ryzen.
Also, update bios and chipset drivers (really important), lower timings on your ram as tight as you can (google it, increase ram voltage to 1.35v if needed).
also use high performance power mode in windows.
I have r5 1400 @ 3.9ghz 1.3v +r9 290 on my side pc, and im getting 260~400 fps with some 330 average, even more on dd2, mirage, overpass).
buy a i9 with a 1080 t1 11 gb and btw 160 fps is not that bad go fuck yourself
Did you try -threads or mat_queue_mode 2 launch option?
