Fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor Stuttering and FPS Drops

Jedi Survivor stuttering fps drops – As the basic processing requirements for a lot of games increase as time goes by, a major concern appears for us gamers, and that is the performance of the game. For a game to appear smooth, it must at least process at 60 fps, and while that seems quite easy to achieve with a lot of games, that might not be the case for a lot of players willing to play Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. 

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has unusually high graphics processing (basic PC spec) requirements, and that could cause some players to face low FPS, FPS Drops at times, or even random stuttering. If you’re facing any FPS-related issues with the game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you’ve come to the right place! In this article by Frondtech, we’ll be guiding you with how you could fix FPS issues in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, keep reading!

Jedi Survivor Stuttering and FPS Drop fix for PC

Before you read any further, let me clarify that the methods I have listed below are not going to add any extra fps, as the game is sort of bugged for the core. It will take more than some basic patch works to get rid of the issue. Anyway, here are the steps that I would like you to try:

Try Performance Mode

If you are an Nvidia user, open your Nvidia Control Panel, and select “Adjust image settings with preview” from the left. Select “Use my preference emphasizing”, and bring the slider to “Performance”. Restart your PC.

Disable all sorts of overlays or background applications

If you use Discord, Spotify, Steam, or any such apps that might run in the background, temporarily disable them or turn them off as they might be causing FPS drops as they consume your RAM or processing power.

Disable Fullscreen Optimizations and Override High DPI Scaling

Go to the location where you have installed Jedi Survivor. You can find the folder easily by just right-clicking on Star Wars Jedi Survivor from your Steam Library, selecting Manage and then clicking on Browse Local Files. Once you land inside the installation folder, go to this location: SwGame\Binaries\Win64. Right-click on the JediSurvivor exe file and select properties. Select the Compatibility tab, and from there, tick the box beside “Disable fullscreen optimizations”. Now click on “Change high DPI settings”, tick the box beside “Override high DPI scaling behavior”, and set “Scaling performed by:” to “Application”.

Update GPU drivers

There is a huge chance that doing this won’t make any difference, but it is better to be safe than sorry. If you haven’t updated your GPU (Graphics card’s) drivers in a while, it could cause stuttering. Make sure they’re up-to-date!

Lower your Graphic Settings

If you’ve just started playing the game, it might be on the default or recommended settings, which might differ, given what PC specifications you have. If you’re facing drops in the game, start by lowering your graphic settings, they’ll range from Epic, high, medium, or low. We recommend that you lower settings one by one as a form of trial and error to see which one suits you the best!

I would have made a Graphics Settings guide, as I always do, for Jedi Survivor, as well. But there is no point, as the fps of the game is reluctant to go up or come down for me, at any preset.

Make use of AMD FSR

If you have an AMD processor or graphics card, and you’re playing in performance mode, change it to quality mode from the visuals menu under AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution 2. This might fix the stuttering!

Cap the FPS of the game

If you are experiencing huge variations in FPS, then it is best to cap the FPS.

    1. Just go to your Nvidia Control Panel
    2. Select Manage 3D Settings
    3. Look for the setting called “Max Frame Rate”
    4. Turn it on and set it to ’59 FPS’ with the help of the slider

If you have an AMD card, use the Radeon Software to activate Radeon Chill and set the max FPS to 60. You can actually use any suitable utility you want to cap the fps.

Set monitor refresh rate to 60hz

A lot of people who bought Jedi Survivor on PC and have high refresh rate monitors, have managed to fix the stuttering by just changing the native resolution of their monitor from 144hz or 240hz to 60hz. Though, this is something that I personally don’t recommend. As fiddling with monitor refresh rates is not a good idea. But if nothing else works for you, try this.

Disable V-sync

V-sync limits the game’s frames per second to the monitor’s refresh rate, sometimes even at 60 FPS if your monitor’s refresh rate happens to be undetectable by the game. If it’s enabled, try disabling it to uncap the frames per second for a smoother experience as you play the game.

Turn off Ray-Tracing

If you have an RTX card, try disabling the Ray-tracing to see if it helps you solve the stuttering or even results in an FPS increase, it’s a win, either way!

Make sure that whatever platform you have, doesn’t have a lot of dust accumulated on them. This could cause the fans to work improperly and hence increase the speeds that your device performs in, causing overheating issues and hence FPS drops/stutter/etc.

My thoughts

I know that most of the methods mentioned above are going to prove useless, as the main problem is in the game itself. EA shouldn’t have launched the game in its current state. If you check out the video I have made showing the performance of the game from 04:11, you will notice that the fps of the game stays stagnant, regardless of the preset:

Being a huge fan of Fallen Order, it makes me extremely sad, that a game, that could have been one of the best games of 2023, is getting treated like this. But in no way, I am going to blame Respawn for this as the devs in most of these companies are overworked. EA should have been more careful. Anyway, it is what it is.


That’s all we had on how you could fix FPS drops/stuttering for the game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.

The good news is EA is well aware of these issues, and is working on a patch at the moment. Expect an update very soon. You can post your Star Wars Jedi Survivor Technical Issues here.
