Getting that 60 FPS experience is a must for a lot of PC players. Since Immortals Fenyx Rising is a Ubisoft developed and published title, it requires a high-end PC to achieve 60 FPS with all the graphics settings set to max. In this Immortals Fenyx Rising PC Optimization Guide, I will help players with each of the game’s graphics options, what it does, and will also recommend the best settings so that players can play the game at 60 FPS on a mid-range PC.
Immortals Fenyx Rising PC Optimization
Immortals Fenyx Rising is the third open-world game this year from Ubisoft. While I was thoroughly disappointed with Wach Dogs Legion’s PC performance, I was quite impressed with how Ubisoft handled Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Immortals Fenyx Rising is developed on the same game engine as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. This means in terms of performance, the game is nowhere as bad as Watch Dogs Legion. However, to get the game running at 60 FPS, players still need to put in some effort.
While Immortals Fenyx Rising is a GPU-bound game, for the most part, players still need at least a 6 Core/6 Thread CPU to achieve the 60 FPS target. 4 Core/4 Thread CPUs have become almost obsolete for 1080p gaming.
In this Immortals Fenyx Rising PC Optimization Guide, I will be targeting a mid-range PC by which I mean a PC with at least an 8th-gen Intel Core-i5 6 Core/6 Thread CPU, Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB, and 16 GB of RAM.
Also if you have an SSD, then I recommend that you install the game there as it’ll not only improve load times but will also help with texture streaming. With that out of the way, let’s begin with our Immortals Fenyx Rising PC Optimization Guide.
Adaptive Quality is an alternative to Resolution Scale. While the resolution Scale renders on a fixed resolution, Adaptive Quality dynamically adjusts the game’s resolution to hit the 60 FPS target.
This option is useful if PC players want to crank the graphics settings up while still maintaining the 60 FPS target.
Anti-Aliasing eliminates jagged edges or aliasing from in-game assets. This graphics setting is quite heavy on performance. I recommend that you set this one at Low. It’ll still eliminate aliasing but, the image will be soft compared to the higher options.
Environment Quality option in Immortals Fenyx Rising controls the level of detail and geometrical complexity of the game’s world. The higher the setting, the dense the grass will be and objects like buildings and trees at a distance will have high-resolution models and increased geometrical complexity. I recommend that you set this one to Medium to save performance.
This graphics option is pretty self-explanatory. Shadow Quality option controls the quality of shadows. The higher the setting, the better looking and high-res the shadows will be. Obviously, this option is quite taxing on the performance, so set this one to Low.
While Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has separate options for Fog, Clouds, and Water settings, Immortals Fenyx Rising has “Effects Quality” that controls all of them. Set this setting to Medium.
Texture Quality settings control the resolution of the textures for in-game assets like walls, houses, vegetation, and even the characters. The higher the settings, the better-looking textures will be for in-game objects. I recommend that you set this to High if you have a GPU with 4G B or more VRAM.
Screen Space Reflections
Screen Space Reflections are reflections that are displayed if the object is in the player’s field of view. If the object is obscured from the player’s field of view, the game will stop rendering reflection for it. This saves performance and I recommend that you set it to On.
Ambient Occlusion can really improve the image quality by adding shadows to objects that would otherwise be ignored. This makes the scene more grounded and realistic. However, it can impact performance. I recommend that you set this setting to On.
Depth Of Field, Motion Blur
Depth of Field and Motion Blur are post-processing effects. These don’t really have a significant impact on performance and their use is dependant on the players themselves.
Depth of Field comes into play during cutscenes predominantly. It focuses on objects and blurs everything around that object.
Motion Blur is useful if you are targeting 30 FPS. Motion Blur smooths the camera movement so it won’t feel jittery while the game is rendering low FPS.
Optimized Graphics Settings For 60 FPS
Now the players understand what each of the Immortals Fenyx Rising’s graphics settings do, the following are the optimized settings to get the 1080p/60 FPS target on mid-range PC.
Adaptive Quality – Player’s choice
Anti-Aliasing – Low
Environment Quality – Medium
Shadows – Low
Effects Quality – Medium
Texture Quality – High
Screen Space Reflections – On
Ambient Occlusion – On
Depth Of Field – Player’s choice
Motion Blur – Player’s choice
Other Tweaks And Optiomizations
There some other tweaks that PC players can do through Nvidia Control Panel which can help boost the game’s performance without sacrificing image quality.
Nvidia Control Panel Tweaks
Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manager 3D Settings > Program Settings > select “Immortals Fenyx Rising” and make the following changes and hit apply.
Anti-aliasing-FXAA – “Off”
Anti-aliasing-Gamma Correction – “Off”
CUDA GPUs – “All”
Low Latency Mode – Ultra.
Set Power Management to “Prefer Maximum Performance”
Shader Cache – “On” only if you are using an HDD. Don’t need to enable it for an SSD.
Set Texture filtering – Quality to “High Performance”
Triple Buffering – “Off”
Set Vertical Sync to “Use the 3D Application Setting”
