Outriders best graphics settings – One of the most anticipated games of this year, which is probably also one of the best Looter-Shooter games of this year, Outriders has been finally been launched. Considering how much hype this game managed to create since it was announced back in 2019, you can be very sure that people who are a fan of co-op looter shooter games like Destiny 2 and Borderlands 3, are going to try this out.
Now, players who are using high-end gaming rigs are not facing many issues with the performance of the game. It is the low-medium end users who are experiencing some good amount of problems.

Hardware Specifications of our Test Rig
There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards. Because let’s be honest, every single game will run smoothly on a RTX 3080 or a RX 5700 XT. That is why we went ahead and ran Outriders on a very basic and mediocre gaming PC. Here are the full specifications of our rig:
- CPU : Intel i3 9100F
- GPU : Zotac GTX 1050 ti
- RAM : 16GB DDR4 3000mhz
- OS : Windows 10 64-bit (Latest Update)
- SSD : 256GB (Game installed on HDD)
- HDD : 1 TB 7200 rpm
- Monitor Resolution : 1920×1080
- Driver : GeForce Game Ready Driver v465.89 [Driver optimized for Outriders]
Utility used : MSI Afterburner
|MINIMUM FPS||AVERAGE FPS||MAXIMUM FPS|
|34 FPS||46 FPS||52 FPS|
Well, after testing the game on a GTX 1050 ti for almost 2 hours, one thing is pretty clear to me now. Outriders is not really a light or a low-demanding title at all. And GTX 1050 ti is probably not the best GPU to play it on. But considering that it is an AAA title in 2021, 40-45 FPS is quite respectable if you ask me. As long as you are not obsessed with playing games at 60 FPS or more, you should have a good time with this game. The explosions on your screen will cause some fps drops. But they can be easily overlooked. Happy gaming!
