Hey Support Forums!
Greetings from the Red Team side of the communities.
I recently did a nice upgrade to my system and I feel like I might not be receiving the performance I was expecting. Not just in gaming, but even when using things like File Explorer, I just notice it to be a bit sluggish.
Here are my core details.
I was wondering if you Gurus over here might be able to give me some tips or tricks on things I can do to pull a bit more efficiency out of my system. Things that might just make it run a little smoother. Maybe things that can help clean up any junk that might be slowing me down?
I'm not really looking to OC anything.
Thank you in advance, and Happy Thanksgiving / Black Friday!
Three things I would suggest:
Sorry didn't see the 2 x 16.
Are you aware of the virtual memory storage in Windows. I learned years ago that if you set the virtual memory storage to a different physical drive it will help some. That should also increase with the adoption of the NVMe drives.
Select Settings then scroll down to the ABOUT then select Advanced System Settings. System Properties should pop up. System Performance will come up, now select the Advanced tab then select the CHANGE button in the virtual memory. I let Windows manage the size to set but I change the location to a second physical drive, preferably a high speed one that I have a partition labeled Virtual Memory.
Thank you everyone for the replies so far!
I forgot to mention that I am running DDR4 RAM.
Have you done some synthetic benches to check it if it falls short as well?
Is it a fresh Windows Install?
Check if the iGPU is overriding the 6600XT, we had some Dell Precision Towers back at work being sluggish because they were giving "right of way" to the iGPU instead of the dedicated card. Maybe check if it is even possible to fully disable it on the BIOS.
Lastly, maybe a Clear CMOS?
I'll try to think on more things to troubleshoot.
Thanks for your support. I took some actions and things do seem to be running that little bit smoother!
