The greatest thing about PC gaming is that you don’t always need overpriced components to play games smoothly. Every single PC game offers in-game graphics settings that can be tweaked in order to flush out the best performance. And this specially goes for those who have low end gaming rigs.
Tweaking in-game graphics or video settings not only gives you a smoother experience but also gets rid of performance issues like lag, random fps drops, freezes, stuttering, etc. Same is the case with Darksiders Genesis. Lets see if it is possible to make this game run for people with low end graphics cards by tweaking the in-game video or graphics settings.
Darksiders Genesis – Optimal or Best Graphics Settings
It is always recommended to run a game on a medium end gaming rig if you want to find out the best combination of graphics settings for the game. There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards. Because lets be honest, every single game will run smoothly on a RTX 2080 Super or a RX 5700 XT.
Though the system requirements of Darksiders Genesis are a bit high, we still went ahead and ran it on a very basic and mediocre gaming PC. Here are the full specifications of our rig:
- CPU : Intel i3 8100
- GPU : MSI GTX 1050 ti 4 GB
- RAM : 16GB DDR4 2666mhz
- HDD : 1 TB 7200 rpm
- Monitor Resolution : 1920×1080
The graphics or video settings we decided to go with:
Go to Options > Graphics
Display Mode : Fullscreen
V-Sync : Off
Anti-Aliasing : Off
Texture Quality : High
Post Processing : High
Shadow Quality : Low
FX Quality : Mid
With these settings we managed to get over 60 fps consistently. There was so lag or instances of stuttering or freezing. The overall experience was smooth enough.
