Question Rust low fps


Apr 19, 2017

So I've been playing Rust for a while on my computer and i notice that the FPS isn't what I expected. I'm aware of the optimization problems Rust has and such. So in game i have 80+ fps when I'm roaming in the edge of a map with 150 ppl on. When i'm around players in the center parts of the map im at like 50 fps.

I've tried using the FPS configs, launch options and such but nothing seems to improve. Also tried the lowest in game settings but no fps difference. Yesterday I even upgraded from 8GB to 16GB ram but no difference what so ever. Please check my specs and If you have any advice, let me know.

Computer spec:
-Ram 16GB 3200mhz
-Graphics Nvidia GTX 1070
-Cpu Intel i7 6700 3.4 ghz
-The hard drive is an SSD with a lot of space left.

rust is horrible at optimization, even running a nvme ssd i run into micro-freezes when loading the next chunk of the map.

sadly thats just how the game is, and face punch is still working on it.

try to play a map that isn't so big, the smaller maps will give you better performance!
