Dead Space Remake gets a 25% free performance boost with Resizable BAR

Earlier today, reports surfaced suggesting that Dead Space Remake greatly benefits from Resizable BAR. From the looks of it, NVIDIA has disabled this feature by default for it. And we can now confirm that Resizable BAR can increase performance by up to 25% in this particular title.

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting that kind of performance increase. After all, this is a free performance boost for everyone that has a PC system that supports Resizable BAR. Nevertheless, I went ahead and tried it, and I was shocked by the results.

As always, we used an Intel i9 9900K with 16GB of DDR4 at 3800Mhz, and NVIDIA’s RTX 4090. We also used Windows 10 64-bit, and the GeForce 528.24 driver.

Below you can find a comparison screenshot between Resizable BAR Off (left) and Resizable BAR On (right). These screenshots are from the exact same place with the exact same graphics settings. And yes, on our PC system, we saw a 25% performance increase.

This is huge news for all PC gamers, and we highly recommend enabling Resizable BAR. Do note that enabling Resizable BAR only from your BIOS is not enough.

In order to enable Resizable BAR for Dead Space Remake, you’ll have to use the NVIDIA Inspector Tool (you can download it from here). Once you launch it, find the Dead Space Remake profile, and make the following changes.

Let’s now hope that EA Motive will release a patch to address the game’s annoying stuttering issues and add a setting for Textures!
