Lag, FPS Drops Fix

Immortals Fenyx Rising is lagging for some users while some are experiencing random fps drops. Here are the things you can do to fix it.

There is a chance that there isn’t any issue with the game at all. And the lag is being caused by the Graphics Settings of the game, set too High. In that case, follow my guide to the graphics settings of Immortals Fenyx Rising. I have tested the game on a GTX 1050 ti.

Try tweaking the Control Panel settings of your graphics cards. Nvidia users, open Nvidia Control Pane > click on ‘Adjust image settings with preview‘ located on the left side under 3D settings and make sure that ‘Use the advanced 3D image settings‘ is selected. Now select “Manage 3D settings” from the left bar and click on the Program Settings tab. Locate Immortals Fenyx Rising from the drop-down menu under “Select a program to customize”. Once you have successfully added the game, you will then see the program settings become available for the game. Now tweak the following settings:
Image Sharpening : Off
Threaded Optimization : On
Power Management : Prefer Maximum Performance
Low Latency Mode : Off
Vertical sync : Off
Texture filtering – Quality : Performance

Set your power management settings to High Performance. Press Windows+R > Type powercfg.cpl into the Run prompt, then press Enter > Expand the Show additional plans collapsible and select High performance > If no High performance plan is available, click the Create a Power Plan button on the left > Select High performance, name your plan, and click Next > Set both of the drop downs in this menu to Never, then click Create.

Have you tried hardware-accelerated gpu scheduling? In the latest build of Windows 10 (2004) there is a new feature called hardware-accelerated gpu scheduling. If you have a decent graphics card then you might actually benefit from this. In order to enable it, head over to the Windows 10 settings menu and click on “System”. Select the Display tab from the left, scroll down, and you will notice an option called Graphics Settings at the bottom. Click on it and turn on Hardware-accelerated GPU Scheduling. You will have to restart your system after you have made the changes.

Stuttering fix

Immortals Fenyx Rising is stuttering for some users. Here are the things you can do to fix it.

Close demanding applications

If you have heavy applications running in the background, then there is a chance that the lag is being caused due to some applications eating up a lot of resources. Just open your Task Manager, select the Processes tab and click on CPU. Make sure the arrow beside it is facing downwards. Doing this will pull the resource hungry applications on top. Look for the processes that you do not need, yet they are consuming a hefty chunk of the CPU. Right click on them and click on “End Task”.

Delete the temporary files from your system

If you have a lot of useless files piled up inside the “Temp” folder of your system, there is a chance that it might be making your PC sluggish. Remove them all.

  • Go to the Start menu on your Desktop.
  • Press the Windows key and the letter R at the same time.
  • Type in %TEMP% and press Enter.
  • Select All (Edit > Select All or Ctrl+A).
  • Click the Delete key

Windows 10 features

There are a lot of features or utilities that are installed by default on Windows 10, and they keep running in the background, hogging a ton of resources, without you having any idea about it.

Like Background Recording. Turn it off by heading over to the “Gaming” settings located inside the Windows Settings menu. There you should find something called “Captures” on the left. Click on it and disable the Background Recording feature inside it.

The Xbox Game Bar is another feature you need to disable. Go to Windows Settings > Gaming > Xbox Game Bar. Turn it off.

And finally the Game Mode feature, it is a complete hit or miss. In some games this features helps while it causes performance issues in some. So it is better to turn it off. Here is how to disable game mode. Open Windows 10 Settings menu > Click on Gaming > Select Game Mode from the left sidebar > Turn it off > Restart your game launcher


If you are playing Immortals Fenyx Rising from Ubisoft Connect, then you need to turn off the in-game overlay and the desktop notifications. These notifications pop up randomly on the right side of your screen and could make full screen applications stutter.

  1. Go to Ubisoft Connect Settings
  2. Select the General tab
  3. Uncheck “Enable in-game overlay for supported games
  4. Uncheck “Enable post game notifications for upcoming releases, events, promotions and additions to my games

If you are playing Immortals Fenyx Rising from Epic Game Launcher, you have to do the exact same thing

Just go the settings menu of Epic Games Launcher. Scroll down to the “Desktop Notifications” section and uncheck the boxes beside “Show Free Game Notifications” and “Show News and Special Offer Notifications”.

If you have other overlays, like from Nvidia GeForce Experience or AMD Adrenaline, try turning them off as well.

If the problem you are facing is a serious one then go here and submit a case to the Ubisoft support. And don’t forget to check out the Ubisoft Forum for Immortals Fenyx Rising.

That’s all folks!
