Improve your PS3 framerates

The following improvements should be made for better and smoother framerates for ps3 games:

Setting the BD/DVD upscaler set off, HDMI 24fps off, HDMI audio set on bitstream, PS2 upscaler/smoother set off.

Disable system display notify/ mediaserver off / all other automatic setting set to off / internet disable if not multiplaying and other setting etc will all help improve framerates...

... (PS3)

LOL @ this article.
Uncharted. No Framerate issues
Ratchet and Clank. No Framerate Issues
Ninja Gaiden. No Framerate Issues
Motorstorm. No Framerate Issues
Heavenly Sword. No framerate Issues
Oblivion. No framerate issues
Lair. No Framerate issues.
Haze. No framerate Issues.
EA games. All have Framerate issues.... Notice a patterrn here?

Oddly, it was more the fact it fixes Skate was my reason for tipping it.

I've never had frame rate issues, but I know some people still buy EA games.
TheMART  +   2922d ago
So your crystal ball is pretty good, huh?

Last time I checked, these games weren't out yet:

Ratchet and Clank.

BTW I've played Haze in Leipzig on a PS3 on the Games Convention. It had framerate issues, it had no AA, it was playing like a last gen game.

And Lair no framerate issues??? You should read the reviews again... The choice of 1080p was a bad one, it had run properly on 720p I guess.

so you played a non beta version of haze. kudos to you.
So as far as my crystal ball goes.

I've played builds of all the games I mentioned. No framerate issues. The PS3 is 100% capable as shown in my list. Please fanboy.. bring up something relavent next time?

Or just continue to self-own yourself.. Dont mention720p. Since its something the 360 cant even do.

Lets go over videos for the 360's towel method to avoid RROD aye?

Wow a ps3fanboy bonanza
I see 'themart' in 3.2 making ACCURATE, VALID points.
Bubbles for you mart....

I also see *25* PS3sheep disagreeing even though he just stated FACTS!

Come on guys!! That is pathetic devotion to the PS3 God...
Idolatry even... lol

what about some balance? You are just sounding blinkered and one sided.

If/when the PS3 has better games, better framerates, better multiports, better graphics, better live etc etc etc... THEN you can act like football hooligans.
..but UNTIL that happens, why not be humble and accept some logical argument from themart et al...

jeez. like kindergarten

how many 360 games are actually 720p LOL!

Halo3 runs at 640p24fps and has worst Framerate than any PS3 game
Where did all the ram go because the game is linear and there is no exploration,,,,,Come on xbot tell me why does Halo3 run at 640p which is not consider HD if 360 has so much power and memory to burn....Go look at Uncharted and see what a nextgen game should look like...memory my azzz 360 sucks

I don't want to add to the sh!t fest ...

The game has no framerate issues. If you played the F'n game (which you have not, your other post tell everyone this) you would know this.
sgaap  +   2921d ago
You are all just hating
because the xbox is doing so well and halo is great fun. No man can tell the difference between upscaled 640 or native 720, and this is done for a very good reason: http://www.shacknews.com/fe...
Also, the human eye can't see more than 30 frames per second. The only thing is that 30fps games often drop below this number, and then you see the difference. I haven't seen any framedrops in halo 3, only in a 4 player coop game, which is probably just a netwok issue.
Stop talking crap specs and play some games.

hahahahahaha..... At least halo 3 is an awsome game. I mean honestly will there ever be a Ps3 game with half of the 1.2 million people(at once) playing online halo 3 the other night. I dont think so. In the end it seems good to me and I play on standard def tv. I did however see bioshock in 1080i and it was beautiful and really smooth too( yes it also does 1080p)

Lay off the roids homo.. Making your brain small.. The 360 is the most unreliable system out there.. Its has what a 35% failure rate.. And i know because mine use to break on me all the time..

Back on subject.. I dont have any framerate issues that i notice or bother me too much.. None in madden 08 or anything like that.. People like to make big deals about nada.. So many people say halo 3 has framerate issues but do you actually notice it or care???? No i dont

No Ps3 games run poorly... Unless its just garbage EA etc
RFOM doesnt have ANY lag, R6 has no lag (looks horrible though), most Ps3 games run a lot smoother then Ps3 games.

Bioshock for example would need this. Gears even stutters.

Ps3 games run pretty solidly.
gamesblow  +   2922d ago
I don't have a single problem with framerate...
Believe me, I'd be the 1st to come out and say it if I did. My ps3 games ar esurprisingly steady. All of them. Even Skate. As a matter of fact, I'm more impressed with how stable everything runs and how smooth they are this gen. I only own and will own the ps3, though. I say this cause it's the only system worth its salt. Long liove the Blu-ray and Ps3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
wil4hire  +   2922d ago
One more time
Ratchet & Clank
Ninja Gaiden
Heavenly Sword
THe Darkness
All 2k developed sports games.

Have no framerate issues.

All EA games however, Do.

Most of these titles are HD as well. Unlike any game ever made for the 360.

Stop self owning yourself bots.

U are probably right on most games, dont know cus I havent played them all. I've played lair however, and it does have some issues, not much tho..

Bathyj  +   2921d ago
Turn off DVD upscaling, turn off any external HD's, actually, just turn it off. Thats the only real way not to get RROD and thats not guaranteed either.

The only 100% way not to get RROD is to never own one.

What annoys me about this current-gen...
...is that we even have framerate issues. I was really hoping they were going to be a thing of the past. Furthermore, it annoys me how console gaming has become more PC like. That is, to get the best out of your console you have to buy a true 1080p display to see the games in full-res.

Obviously thats a problem inherent with HD gaming as there are so many standards of HD displays, e.g. 720p, 1080i, 1080p. Even then you have to check to see what the native resolution of the HDTV is.

@Wil4hire: F**k I hate it when fanboys reply. I wish you and the rest of your type would do me and all the other real gamers a favor and just shut your mouth.

The ps3 has no problems with HD games.
Only EA games have frame stuttering and issues. The rest that EA doesn't develop. Naughty Dog/Insomniac. Have no issues with 720p+ Game development.

I'd hate to think that "NEXT GEN" Cant do more than 1024x780 or whatever the popular PC resolutions were. Don't worry.. The ps3's games coming out this month/next month are just the start of the future of next gen.

Minus the RROD.

There's some standard in HD....
Technically, HD standard was 1080P. Then some people woke up and found out it could never be transmitted via Cable or Satellite because of bandwith issue. They then decided to go for 1080i... Half the bandwith but still marvelous 1920X1080... Then they woke up again, and though that for sport, or fast action, interlace wasn't the best, so they lowered it down to 720P. It should have been the end of story. After all, 720P is a lot more than the 480P half the world is used to. It's also better than the other half of the world, who is using 576 as their SD broadcast (PAL countries)...

So is anything less than 720P should be considered HD when the initial specification was 1080P. If you live in one of those country using PAL, at 576 lines, I don't think 640 lines is HD for them, it's only a little bit above their very own SD broadcast...

So sadly, there should be only one standard, but we now have to live with 3 for tv broadcast and videos(1080P 1080i 720P) and now thanks to gaming, anything above 576 is now HD... You can assume that eventually, somebody will make a game in GLORIOUS 577 lines of HD, upscale to 720P...

So maybe you're right, too many standards... Maybe the Wii was right, 480P was enough. Maybe the 360 was right, anything above PAL (576 lines) is enough. But still, I own a HD tv capable of 1920X1080, so I like the fact that the PS3 is aiming for that, not 577 lines being uspcalled and claiming it's HD : )

aiphanes  +   2922d ago
What crack are you smoking? 640 is not HD!!!!
720P, 1080i and 1080p are all HD!!!

Halo 3 is not native HD...it never will....640p is last gen resolution. Even if the Xbox 360 hardware is upscalling to 1080p...the native res of Halo 3 is 640p which is below HD resultion. Its all about the native rez.

There is no PS3 game that is native rez below 720p. There are several games that are in native rez of 1080p...which is not even possible on the Xbox 360.

Also the Cell and the RSX can use both banks of ram...The Cell can use the RSX ram and the RSX can use the Cell ram....so both have up to 512 megs of ram...its just different than the Xbox 360 ram which is totally unified.

Have you played Ratchet and Clank Demo on the PS3? That game is totally smooth...60fps at 720p.....the game is awesome.

After bungie came out and said Halo 3 was only 640p.....it was all down hill for the Xbox 360.....

Check the PSN this week....
One game: "Everyday shooter" just came out. It was made by one single guy!!! Wow, the PS3 is hard to develop for, yet, one single man made a pretty decent game now selling on PSN... Sure, it's not using all the power of the PS3. For that, you need a team. So what those big business, like EA are doing? If one guy can make a decent game, one hundred working a full year should do miracles...

Trust me, programmers found it hard to code for multiples cores. They had to adjust for the PC. They had to adjust for the 360, and it's not that hard to adjust for the Cell.

Next, 640 lines is not HD... That's a now absolutely obsolete resolution on most PCs... I didn't want to wait for the orange box, so I bought it for the PC. DO YOU THINK I'M PLAYING IT IN 1180X640???? I was probably playing games at that resolution when you were not even born!!! Love Portal and Fortress so far (went through portal pretty fast, but concept is awesome). Oooops, I paid less for the game, and trust me it can run on very, very old pcs...

Real Gambler  +   2922d ago
What are you talking about???
Are you talking about Windows XP? Patches still coming out weekly for a 6 years old O.S. Dang I feel like a beta tester...

Are you talking about Windows Vista? Not even one year old, and service pack one is coming out soon...

Are you talking about the 360? How many version of hardware will it take before it doesn't break down... Most people agree that the 65nm GPU and new memory should fix most problems.

If Halo would have been designed by Microsoft, there would be a patch out already for it...

We are all beta testers... Sadly, Microsoft is not the only one using us, but they are likely the worst.

Well good thing my PS3 titles don't have framerate issues.
I haven't gotten any multi-platform titles, though Guitar Hero 3 is coming up. I don't really believe this, especially since even the R&C Demo, which obviously pushes the system a lot harder than EA's titles, doesn't have framerate issues, even with my upscalers for BD/DVD/PS1/PS2 turned on.
TheMART  +   2922d ago
Even if your PS3 has framerate issues (strange PS3 owners say they don't experience it, when PS3 games reviews state it over and over again), you would say it hasn't have any.

DJ, you were defending the PS3 even a year before you bought one. Clearly you're not a very trustfull source.

@ Maddens (below)

One that tells the truth has people that don't like what ones saying, others appreciate it. That's why.
DJ  +   2922d ago
I defended the Xbox 360, Xbox, and PS2 as well
so it's important not to falsely accuse me of being aligned with only one console manufacturer. Again, I stated that I don't have any multiplatform titles, but I haven't noticed any big framerate issues for the titles that I do have. What this does is prove that while turning off all those OS features MIGHT have some beneficial effect on performance, it seems to have more to do with how a lot of multiplatform titles are running poorly on the system.

If they didn't code the games correctly, that negatively affects OS performance since a lot of the PS3 architecture is controlled manually; the 360 is a lot more automated, so if they ported from 360 to PS3, those problems become amplified.

Why does TheMART at Xboxkings -

Topshelfcheese  +   2921d ago
I would assume Mart has bubbles, because there seems to be more 360 fanboys than PS3 fanboys. The real issue is, if you can only afford or want one system, than just be happy with it, what does it do at all to attack anything. I own them all and I play them all equally(I still have my launch 360, and zero complaints with my PS3 or Wii so far either). Why someone can get so annoyed with something they have no intention of ever buying is beyond me.

ps3 has no problem with framerates or delivering on sony's promise.
put some effort into it,and the results are 1080p at 60 fps.create the right engine,optimize your code,know what you are doing.eventually all the ps3 games will hit max resolution and speed.

ps3 does exactly what sony said it can do from E3 2005.it just takes time and effort.but some devs don't have the time and resources.and what you get is bad frames.but the resolution is still high.but sony is showing the way early in the game.

heavenly sword achieves what the target suggests

f1 achieves what the target suggests

lair achieves what the target suggests

GT5 achieves what the target suggests

uncharted achieves what the target suggests

ratchet achieves what the target suggests

motorstorm achieves what the target suggests

warhawk achieves what the target suggests

killzone achieves what the target suggests

all these "SONY" games are delivering what sony said the system can do.and it's only the first year.only fanboys say otherwise.look up any previous video of these games and they play like the target video suggests they will play like and look like.with great resolution and framerates.

and to those fanboys that say otherwise,all that i showed above look like "GAMES" to me.

I think your seriously deluding yourself.

640p is not hd. Yes it higher then sd but thats all.

Gears of war stutters. UT3 on ps3 doesn't, and its a better looking game.

R&C Does not stutter, but has alot going on.
Sega rally revo does not stutter and looks sweet.

On the subject of the ps3 not being built for gaming. It actually very similar to the 360. Minus the spu's of course.

But the spu's are a source of great power.

I think the 360's games do run and look sweet. I wasn't overly impressed with halo3. And i'm not the only one.

But i've got to say this, the most advanced game coming out is uncharted drakes fortune. Wipes the floor with anything out or due out in quite a few months and that includes call of duty 4.
