The reason why PC gaming is great is because 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 Detroit Become Human.
The game is extremely demanding and poorly optimized. Even with the latest drivers there is not much you can do if you have a low end PC. So 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.
Detroit Become Human – 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 Detroit Become Human are very 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
- Driver : GeForce Game Ready Driver v441.66
Optimal or Best Graphics Settings for Detroit Become Human
The graphics or video settings we decided to go with:
Display Mode : Full Screen
Resolution Scale : 1.00
FPS Limit : 60
Vsync : Off
Visual Quality : Custom
Texture Quality : Low
Texture Filtering : Medium
Shadow Quality : Low
Model Quality : Low
Depth of Field : Low
Motion Blur : Off
Volumetric Lighting : Low
Screen Space Reflection : Off
Ambient Occlusion : Off
Bloom : Off
Now a lot of you might be thinking that all I did was set everything to low. The truth is there is no other option other than playing this game on the lowest settings. The game is extremely demanding and very poorly optimized. And it makes sense because this is just another port. And most of the ports don’t do well.
Even at the settings given above the game was struggling to run over 40 fps. Most of the time it was staying between 30-35. And the GTX 1050 ti is not a bad graphics card at all. And don’t even think about running this game on a GTX 1050 2GB or a GTX 750ti.
