Ryzen 5 1600 and GTX 1060 not performing to their fullest

Hi! I'm having a very annoying problem with my PC, and I think it has something to do with my CPU and GPU. My PC build worked great when I first built it, and one of the first things I did was download Steam and start up Rust. I know Rust is a very demanding game, and I've seen benchmarks of people playing with worse conponents and Stil getting 50~70 FPS High-Ultra. So I launch my game, and everything is PERFECT. 80-100 FPS ultra - high settings. I play for about an hour, log off, and come back after two days. (After I downloaded other games and stuff). I come back on to see that I'm getting 60fps, but that's still okay. Each step I took my frames would drop into the 40's, and on the lowest settings possible, I averaged 30-40fps. I don't know why, but I would like to fix it, as I have a YouTube channel based off the game. Task manager says that the CPU is only at about 20% to 50% used, and GPU-Z shows that the GPU is about 30-80% used, and about 100 MB of my DDR4 ram is free. Please help me.

  1. Best answer
    Try optimizing you OS by shutting down unneeded services. Use blackvipers safe desktop settings to free up RAM and CPU.

    Then optimize the game.

    Make sure you have the latest motherboard bios. Looks to be 0805 currently.

  2. I've done all that, but still very low FPS. When I open task manager, my pc has only 100mb left of ram. Does that mean I should upgrade to 16GB to prevent this?
  3. If you have 8GB's it should be enough for games. Maybe you have a virus because shutting down services should have freed up a bunch of RAM. If you have boot time virus scan try it and then use malewarebytes to detect malware on your system. If you need anti-virus protection Avast is good.

    Also check your Usable RAM as many get windows issues limiting access to full RAM. Check your systems computer properties page for the issue in the image.
  4. rust is not patched for AMD ryzen chips. it also may not be aware of cores over 4. due to intels assisting companies on using their old developers kits.

    I already have Avast, the premium one infact. No viruses detected. Just did a scan.

    Next check for maleware using malewarebytes. Use the for home version for windows. Just download as get a free trail that should help clear out some bad stuff.

  9. I'm sure it's a problem with the ram

    8gb ram is usually enough to run gtx 1060 6gb model

    But due to the lack of vram in a GTX 1060 3gb u will need at least 16gb to unlock the full potential of your gpu
