NFS PAYBACK @720p @30fps possible with APU?

Hey Guys,

I recently installed Need for Speed Payback on my computer. With the low preset at 720p, I get around 23 fps.

On dropping the resolution to 1024x768, I get around 30 fps but the picture gets stretched a lot so the graphics look pretty terrible.

Is there any way to get around 30fps @720p resolution?

If not, can I set up some lower custom 16:9 resolution? And how to do that.

My build:-

AMD A8-7600

Radeon r7 graphics (IGP)

Driver version: Adrenalin 18.2.1

HyperX Fury 2x4gb 1866

Asus A68hm-k

450 W SMPS

Seagate BarraCuda 1TB Hard Drive

Windows 10 64bit

I do have some kind of adware lurking around in my PC as chrome tabs open automatically every now and then when I use my PC. So do you think removing that, (by fresh installing windows) the fps is gonna increase?

PS: I really don't want to re-install windows but I will if I have to, malwarebytes and a few other similar programs and adware removal tools didn't help.

mh - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQkd05iAYed2-LOmhjzDG6g/videos

you cripple your iGPU with that RAM - try to OC it a little
also use latest driver 18.3.1

check: LowSpecGamer - YouTube ; Download Low Specs Experience – RagnoTech™ Software Solutions (most stuff here provided can simply be set by manual ini editing)

PC: R7 2700X @PBO + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS

that's the max speed my ram can run at, I tried ocing it to 2133, it failed.

btw does lowspecexperience allow a decent 16:9 resolution? Coz for all I know is that completely ruins the graphics

I've already watched that, not of much help.

Hello,

So few things:

-If you have malware issues and your system is being corrupted i would advice you to perform a clean install. I mean if you notice other process constantly using cpu/mem/disk resource, these could harm your gaming experience. Aside having windows updated to the last patch, an antivirus, running malawarebyte, installing an Ad blocker/Noscript, there is not much else to do. It is better to start over a clean install than still using an already compromised one.

-Are you running the last bios for your motherboard? All other peripheral device drivers are ok?
You can try overclocking a bit both cpu and gpu of the APU for better performances, but to be honest your motherboard is not meant to sustain prolonged high overclock.
If you want to overclock a bit you must have a decent cooler on top of the APU to avoid overheating. I would suggest to check your overall system T° using HWInfo, to be sure the rig is not overheating when you are playing, lowering the performances. I suggest you to check on youtube how to deal with the bios setting and learn how to oc your APU if you can. You can also overclock using the AMD Overdrive Utility instead of using the bios settings, check also that.

-I would anyway check into the bios the integrated gpu settings, as you could maybe fine tune the shared memory setting for better performances.

Also i advice you to check into the radeon setting panel, under global settings, the texture filtering quality should be set into performances. In the same tab you can disable the tessellation overriding the application setting to off. Be sure nothing else is running when you are playing.

I would try to OC the RAM and the GPU Core. You could also try if you have the option to create a custom resolution that is lower than 720p but still retains 16:9 ratio so it would not look stretched. If Chrome opens by itself then I do suggest to do a clean Windows Install. You can also try a tool called CRU that can do this if you cant find the option in the Radeon Settings. I will reply back if you need more help.
