Elden Ring, the latest highly anticipated title from From Software games, is now ready to play. The game has demanding requirements on PC and even outputs occasional stuttering. So, here is a breakdown of the Best Performance settings for Elden Ring on PC to make sure you have the smoothest experience in the Lands Between.

Elden Ring Best Settings For PC

Before tuning the graphics settings, it’s recommended that you install the latest game-ready driver for your GPU. This will not only boost performance but may even address some stuttering in Elden Ring.

Here is a more fine-tuned approach to Elden Ring graphics. You can access all these options in the menu under the graphics tab.

  • Texture Quality: Medium
  • Antialiasing Quality: Low
  • SSAO: Maximum – Medium
  • Depth of Field: Personal Choice
  • Motion Blur: Off
  • Shadow Quality: High
  • Lighting Quality: Personal Choice
  • Effects Quality: High
  • Volumetric Quality: High
  • Reflection Quality: High
  • Water Surface Quality: Medium
  • Shader Quality: Medium

Best Preset Settings

Best Preset: High

The game offers four different presets – low, medium, high, and max. The best preset to run the game is high due to certain reasons.

If you have specs just above the minimum requirements, you might not be able to run the game at max without losing performance, and turning it down to medium will make the game quite blurry and bad that you might not play it at all.

Turning to low will just multiply that effect. High is the sweet spot where you won’t have to compromise on neither performance nor quality.

There is not much difference in performance gains between medium and high, so sticking to High is recommended here.

Best Graphics Settings for Xbox, PlayStation

Both Xbox and Playstation offers players with 2 Graphics presets in Elden Ring; Quality and Performance. Quality Mode on PS5 and Xbox Series X runs at native 4K and 1440p in the case of Xbox Series S.

Though very powerful, modern-generation consoles can sometimes get stuck in a pinch where a game refuses to run at 60fps constant. Elden Ring can be a bit wonky when you try to run it on a console.

There are several workarounds to the performance issues on the consoles. If you are using a PS5, what you can do is you can run the PS4 version of the game to significantly boost performance. Unfortunately, if you are using Xbox, there is no workaround like for the PlayStation.

The ideal way to fix performance issues on consoles is by choosing different presets. If you are struggling, you can switch to the Performance preset. This will render the game at a lower resolution when frames drop below a certain level thanks to dynamic resolution. In the case of PS5 and Xbox Series X, the lowered resolution can go down to 2688×1512 and 1792×1008 on Xbox Series S.

Depending on the resolution you are running, you can test presets and use the one that suits you best.
