This process takes a maximum of five minutes and is helpful information to everyone TF2 from potential streamers to people trying to make decisions about new hardware to buy. For example, by benchmarking this morning I learned that disabling shadows raises my average FPS by almost 30 (useful for offsetting the FPS penalty that is caused by live streaming).

Please offer more details than what I have listed in my example below if you find something substantial. For example, if tweaking a driver setting gives you a large gain in average FPS, document it in your results.

Instructions:

1) Get benchmark demo https://mega.co.nz/#!a0JDlBRR!VYY-9Umsg67xMqwB_e9MRALrlvZpp5E37o9xPKReI08

2) Extract benchmark1.dem to your tf2 folder like any other demo

3) Make sure no resource heavy processes are running

4) Open TF2 and run the benchmark from console: timedemo benchmark1

5) Copy the result from console

6) Post your result to this thread following my example below:

2639 frames 15.886 seconds 166.12 fps ( 6.02 ms/f) 7.576 fps variability

i haven't taken stat in five or so years, I think it is s.d. squared then? which would just make the disparity larger.

I ran this test twice got mostly the same results, but the 2nd time I ran another FPS benchmark and got the roughly the same average, but my minimum was like 46fps and max was about 89fps.

-edit- all bellow will have the same setting originally states with only minor differences

same settings as Original except with mat_trilinear 0

(oddly enough I also tried texture/light filters off + this and noticed that leaving the filter on and this off gives you more FPS)

I would like to thank the OP for making this otherwise I wouldn't be able to get a decent minimum fps, and I hope some of my results help people find out what settings they want to use.

oh and I've been wondering for awhile if the file found in this thread http://ozfortress.com/showthread.php?t=39676 (it removes the bullet impact debris) increases FPS or not

aero disabled as well

I ran this test twice got mostly the same results, but the 2nd time I ran another FPS benchmark and got the roughly the same average, but my minimum was like 46fps and max was about 89fps.

-edit- all bellow will have the same setting originally states with only minor differences

same setting shadows turned off
[code]2639 frames 30.000 seconds 87.97 fps (11.37 ms/f) 3.595 fps variability[/code]

same settings as Original but with light and texture filters off
[code]2639 frames 34.305 seconds 76.93 fps (13.00 ms/f) 3.692 fps variability[/code]

same settings as Original except with mat_trilinear 0
[code]2639 frames 33.573 seconds 78.60 fps (12.72 ms/f) 2.574 fps variability[/code]
(oddly enough I also tried texture/light filters off + this and noticed that leaving the filter on and this off gives you more FPS)

ragdolls on
[code]2639 frames 36.929 seconds 71.46 fps (13.99 ms/f) 2.133 fps variability
[/code]

mat_specular 1
[code]2639 frames 33.963 seconds 77.70 fps (12.87 ms/f) 2.576 fps variability
[/code]
weird I didn't think this would help fps...

mat_specular 1, mat_trilinear 0, shadows off
[code]2639 frames 28.449 seconds 92.76 fps (10.78 ms/f) 3.515 fps variability
[/code]

I would like to thank the OP for making this otherwise I wouldn't be able to get a decent minimum fps, and I hope some of my results help people find out what settings they want to use.

oh and I've been wondering for awhile if the file found in this thread http://ozfortress.com/showthread.php?t=39676 (it removes the bullet impact debris) increases FPS or not
[code]2639 frames 27.844 seconds 94.78 fps (10.55 ms/f) 3.452 fps variability[/code] (this is with the last settings I used)

Any reason why my results are so low? I feel like I'm doing something that I shouldn't be.

Disconnect 1 of your monitors and see if that helps, could also disable some aero settings for when you play.
