How To Get 1080p/60 FPS

The following are some PC performance tweaks for Mortal Kombat 11 that will help you maintain a steady 60 FPS and will also help eliminate stuttering. Keep that in mind these PC tweaks for 1080/60 FPS experience.

Also, these tweaks work best if you are playing the game at least on GTX 1070 as GTX 1060 might not be able to maintain 60 FPS using the following tweaks. Even if GTX 1060 is able to do it then it will be at the cost of lowering graphical settings.

We will start from some basic PC tweaks and will work out way up. By the end, you should be able to squeeze steady 60 FPS while playing Mortal Kombat 11.

First, update your GPU drivers as they bring game-specific optimizations. If you own an Nvidia GPU then also update GeForce Experience. Also, make sure there is no background process running using too much of your CPU, RAM, or HDD.

Step 1
As I mentioned above maintaining 60 FPS is very important for a fighting video game. The first step is to achieve that is to set-up monitor level supersampling.

The reason why we are enabling this is that in-game TAA causes strange artifacts that we aim to eliminate by Supersampling and disabling the TAA. Also, TAA(Temporal Anti-aliasing) makes the game look a bit blurry.

This can be achieved by enabling DSR through Nvidia Control Panel without affecting desktop resolution. However, at the time writing, Mortal Kombat 11 doesn’t support DSR for some reason.

If DSR is working for the game, then skip the line below and just enable DSR and start the game and set the rendering resolution.

You can follow this guide to set up Supersampling.

Set your Rendering resolution depending on your GPU. If you are using GTX 1080 or GTX 1070, then set the rendering resolution to 1440p.

What it will do is that the image will be rendered at 1440p native and will be downsampled to 1080p, making the image look more crisp and clear in the process.

Step 2
With DSR or Supersampling Enabled, the next step is to to make tweaks that will help with eliminating stuttering and achieving 60 FPS.

Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings and select Mortal Kombat 11 from the drop-down list. If the game isn’t there then you need to add it. Now you need to go through the options and set their values. The following are the ones that you need to tweak.

  • Antialiasing – Mode: Enhance the application setting or you can use Override application setting is you don’t intend to use FXAA.
  • Antialiasing – Setting: 8x
  • Multi-Frame Sampled AA (MFAA): On
  • Power Management Mode: Prefer Maximum Performance
  • Texture Filtering- Quality: High Performance
  • Vertical Sync: Fast

Step 3
Now that you are done with the Nvidia Control Panel, it’s time to make some tweaks with in-game options. Make the following changes.

  • If you have enabled DSR then set the rendering resolution depending on your GPU.
  • Turn off Vertical Sync as you enabled “Fast” from Nvidia Control Panel.
  • Play the game in fullscreen for better performance.
  • Turn off TAA and enable FXAA.

The reason for disabling the TAA is that we have enabled supersampling which itself removed aliased edges to some extent. Also, TAA causes strange artifacts.

As I mentioned above, you don’t even need to enable FXAA is you choose to “Override application setting” for anti-aliasing in Nvidia Control Panel.

Using these settings you can crank up the graphical settings are high as you want but only to the point that the game maintains its 60 FPS during gameplay.
