[quote name='asheskitty']Your GTX 650 has very similar performance to my GTX 260. No clue about Win8, but in Win7 using a Basic (non-Aero) theme bought me 10+FPS in Sleeping Dogs. Below is the tweak guide I used, as well as my benchmark. Try my settings on the benchmark and see what you get.http://www.rage3d.co...gs_tweak_guide/
[quote name='Junpei']Thanks, I saw that you already posted your benchmark some messages ago, but it flew over my head somehow... I'll try that once I get home
[quote name='squijee']Wait aero themes really can affect my fps?[/QUOTE]
[quote name='asheskitty']You could take my word for it (below) or test it yourself.[/QUOTE]
Here are my results, oddly the average fps stays relatively the same...
With Aero, V-Sync On:
With Aero, V-Sync off:
Without Aero, V-Sync On:
Without Aero, V-Sync Off:
As you can see, there is a marked improvement with Aero turned off, but in my case, only when V-Sync is turned off.
