The 'Advanced Video' settings s1mple uses further illustrate his emphasis on performance. He has set his Global Shadow Quality and Model/Texture Detail to 'Very Low' and 'Low', respectively.

Texture streaming is disabled to minimize potential stutters, and the boost player contract feature is also turned off. Interestingly, Multicore Rendering is enabled, allowing for better overall performance by using more of the system's CPU cores.

In terms of anti-aliasing, s1mple uses an 8X MSAA mode, but has disabled FXAA. This preference suggests a focus on sharp and accurate representation of objects within the game. Texture Filtering Mode is set to BILINEAR, another choice that contributes to superior performance.

To eliminate possible delays in rendering frames, s1mple has disabled both the 'Wait for Vertical Sync' and 'Motion Blur' options. The 'Triple-Monitor Mode' is also turned off, indicating that s1mple plays on a single display setup.

Notably, the use of Uber Shaders is enabled, which can offer more efficient rendering, making gameplay smoother and potentially giving s1mple an extra edge in fast-paced, high-stakes encounters.
