If you’re facing lagging, freezing, audio stuttering, and/or FPS drops in Starfield, there are some solutions you can try to improve performance.

The best tip to significantly improve performance on Starfield is to move it from your Hard Drive to your SSD/M2. This will reduce any performance issues you’ve had and make the game run smoother.

Another thing you can try is to check the system requirements as shown on the official Steam page of the game to see if your PC can run it. Then, based on that, tweak your graphics settings.

On top of that, make sure your GPU Drivers are updated through your GPU’s software.

Best Starfield PC Settings for Performance and High FPS

To ensure stable FPS in Starfield, it’s important to sacrifice some visual elements. Specifically, here are the best settings in Starfield for high FPS:

  • Dynamic Resolution: On
  • Render Resolution: 75%
  • Graphics Preset: Custom
  • Shadow Quality: Low
  • Indirect Lighting: Low
  • Reflections: Low
  • Particle Quality: Low
  • Volumetric Lighting: Low
  • Crowd Density: Low
  • Motion Blur: Off
  • GTAO Quality: Medium
  • Grass Quality: Medium
  • Contact Shadows: Medium
  • VSync: Off
  • Upscaling: FSR2
  • Enable VRS: On
  • Depth of Field: Off

We’ve kept some settings on Medium that help the game look better. However, if your FPS is still not high enough, you can consider switching everything to low.

Also, Starfield is intended to be played on Render Resolution 75%, so don’t worry about that. Even if you set the Graphics Preset to High, Render Resolution will be set to 75%.

With everything set to low and off, you’ll see a significant boost to your FPS and will stop having major drops in most locations. Keep in mind that some performance issues may remain as it will also depend on your PC and the game’s optimization.

However, with some upcoming patches, we can expect at least some performance issues to be fixed.

Wrapping up

In conclusion, the best way to fix Starfield stuttering on PC is to move the game to an SSD/M2, check if your GPU drivers are updated, and tweak your graphics settings to low.

With these, you’ll reduce FPS drops, lagging, freezing, and audio stuttering issues on PC.
