Early last month, Valve deployed a new CS: GO launch option that decreases CPU memory usage by roughly 40%. The launch option is called “d3d9ex” and you could use it by setting this option on Steam. Now, after nearly two months of testing, the CS: GO launch option has now been set to default with the latest update.

This launch option is said to reduce the CPU memory usage by roughly 40%, which is a pretty big deal for those who don’t have a powerful gaming PC, or for those who want to get more performance out of their rig.

For those having issues, you can also disable this launch option by following these steps:

  • In Steam, right click on CS: GO from your library and then click on Properties.
  • Click on “set launch options” which you can see just above “create desktop shortcut”.
  • Copy and paste this line into the field: -disable_d3d9ex
  • Click “OK” and you are good to go.

Valve does note that if you do encounter problems, you can email them [email protected] with the subject “D3D9EX”.

Apart from the CS: GO launch option now being the default, the latest CS: GO update also brings the following fixes:

  • Fixed a bug with flashbangs that were infinitely purchasable in Competitive Matchmaking – now all grenade types have buy limits matching their carry limits, and grenades carried over from the previous round count towards the buy limit.
  • Fixed a bug where name of invited friend was not showing in party chat when they join.
  • Fixed a bug when all items but the currently equipped item were removed from shuffle.
  • Fixed several shuffle bugs related to weapons sharing a loadout slot.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes showed default knife in spectator UI.
  • Localization fixes for Turkish language.
