Upgraded PC 3D model low framerate

  TheMaverick987 22:52 19 Jan 2019

I recently upgraded my computer and found that it runs perfectly smoothly until I tried playing games that included 3D models. The framerate would drop immensely. The PC is a full upgrade from my last one and my last one did not have this problem. Is there anything I can do?

The Ryzen 3 2200G isn't a powerhouse for gaming despite the boasts about Vega onboard graphics from AMD.

However it should play many titles fine on medium or so settings at 1080p.

From what the OS is saying about the available memory it looks like the shared memory is low. It appears to be using only around 1GB which isn't enough.

The system should be able to allocate another GB for this upping it to 2GB. You will have to set this in the BIOS.

Also ensure you have the RAM installed in the proper channels to enable Dual Channel mode as the Ryzen G performance can be affected a lot if the memory is running in single channel mode.

How do I set stuff in the BIOS?

  Menzie 02:01 20 Jan 2019

My apologies, the resolution it will actually game at medium settings on is 720p.

In Battlefield 1 for instance at 720p on medium it can hit 60fps. At 1080p on low settings it will be around 40fps.

In discrete card terms it would be about as powerful as a GeForce 1030.

Your specs doesn't actually list the motherboard model. Usually hitting F2 on startup will get you into most BIOS'.

There should be a section for integrated graphics where you can adjust the shared memory size.

It's an ASUS model motherboard I think. I can't seem to get to the bios.

  Menzie 04:20 20 Jan 2019

It's usually either F2 or the Del key on Asus boards. As soon as the system is powered up keep tapping one, if it doesn't work try rebooting the system and tapping the other. One of them should bring up the BIOS.

Ok I've been able to access bios but can't find anything for integrated graphics

Your BIOS mostly likely defaults to a Simple/Wizard Mode. You need to change it to Advanced. Usually F7 changes between the two modes once in the BIOS.

Usually the graphics setting can be found in either the advanced menu or main. It can either be under Graphics, Shared Graphics, IGP, or IGPFX depending on your exact motherboard.
