Elden Ring is out now and if you are playing it on PC then you will note that it does not run all that well. Fortunately there are a couple of settings that you can tweak in order to make performance better. In this Elden Ring PC optimization guide, we are going to go over the settings that you can tweak to improve performance.
Elden Ring PC Optimization
The following are the settings that you can tweak in order to optimize Elden Ring for PC and get 60 FPS. Note that settings that have negligible impacts as per our testing have not been included. Feel free to tweak them to see if you can improve performance further.
Turning down ambient occlusion from high to medium is not going to impact image quality too much but it does give you an increase in performance of around 3% which is significant if you are just shy of hitting that 60 FPS mark.
While reducing this setting from high to medium is going to increase performance by 3% we recommend sticking to the highest setting. You will get flashing on ties if you tweak this setting and that is just going to ruin the immersion.
Dropping this setting from high to medium is going to boost performance by another 3%. This is one of the individual settings that we can recommend turning down in order to improve FPS.
Tweaking this setting down from the highest setting to medium is going to impact image quality in the greener areas of the game but it is also going to increase performance by 5% which is significant.
Reducing the texture quality from high to medium is going to give you a small bump in performance without impacting the visual quality.
These are the settings that we recommend you tweak when running Elden Ring on PC. It is worth mentioning that the game does not run all that well on PC if you do not have high-end hardware but that should be fixed in time.
