Final Fantasy 7 Remake is available for PC and PC players are disappointed with the game’s performance. PC players are experiencing stuttering and severe FPS drops while playing the game. Here is how to fix Final Fantasy 7 Remake stuttering and boost performance on PC to get 60 FPS.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Stuttering Fix
Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC requires a DX12 compatible GPU to run. However, DirectX 12 is the culprit that is causing most of the stuttering and FPS drops in the FF7 Remake. To fix Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC performance or stuttering, players must force the game to use DX11.
Open Epic Games Store client and open Settings. Scroll all the way down to “Manage Games”. Here you’ll find the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Check “Additional Command Line Arguments” and type “-dx11” under it. This will force the game to use DirectX 11 and almost completely fixes the Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC performance and stuttering issues.
However, forcing DX11 makes the in-game V.sync option useless. But that doesn’t mean you have to play the game with screen tearing. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Scroll down to Vertical Sync, select on, and hit apply. This will make sure the frames don’t tear while the performance is boosted.
While in Nvidia Control Panel, I suggest you make the following changes too and hit apply to make sure Final Fantasy 7 Remake and the GPU perform at their peak.
Anti-aliasing-Gamma Correction – Off
Antialiasing Mode – Application Controlled
Antialiasing Transparency – Off
CUDA GPUs – All
Low Latency Mode – Ultra
Power Management – Prefer Maximum Performance
Shader Cache – On only if you are using an HDD. Don’t need to enable it for an SSD.
Texture filtering – Quality – High Performance
Threaded Optimization – Off
Triple Buffering – Off
If you own Final Fantasy 7 Remake on Steam, right-click the game in Steam library > properties > type -d3d11 or -dx11 under Launch Options and hit press OK. Launch Final Fantasy 7 Remake and the stuttering will be fixed.
