Resident Evil Village (RE8) – Best Graphics Settings to boost FPS [Tested on GTX 1050 ti]

Tweaking in-game graphics or video settings not only gives you a smoother experience but also gets rid of performance issues, and you also get a nice FPS boost. Same is the case with Resident Evil Village. Let’s see if it is possible to make Resident Evil Village run for people with high-end graphics cards like GTX 1050 ti, by tweaking the in-game video or graphics settings.

Resident Evil Village (RE8) – Best Graphics Settings to boost FPS

It is always recommended running 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 let’s be honest, every single game will run smoothly on a RTX 3080 or a RX 6800 XT.

Though the system requirements of Resident Evil Village is a bit high, we still went ahead and ran it on a very basic and mediocre gaming PC. Let’s check out the graphics settings first:

Graphics settings

  • Color Space : sRGB
  • Display Mode : Full Screen
  • Screen Resolution : 1920×1080
  • Refresh Rate : 60.00Hz (143.86Hz if you have a 144hz monitor)
  • Frame Rate : Variable
  • Vertical Synchronization : Off
  • Rendering Mode : Normal (Interlaced – if you are getting extremely low fps; Image quality will drop significantly)
  • Image Quality : 1
  • FidelityFX CAS : On
  • Anti-aliasing : FXAA+TAA
  • Variable Rate Shading : Balanced (If this setting is greyed out, it means your GPU doesn’t support this)
  • Texture Quality : High (2 GB) (Lowering this doesn’t affect the performance in any way)
  • Texture Filter Quality : High (ANISO x16)
  • Mesh Quality : Max (Lowering this doesn’t affect the performance in any way)
  • Ray Tracing : Off (lol XD)
  • Ambient Occlusion : SSAO
  • Screen Space Reflections : Off (Another useless setting)
  • Volumetric Lighting Quality : Mid

Benchmark Results

Though this game surprisingly runs quite well on a GTX 1050ti, I haven’t been able to get consistent results from the tests. Most of the graphics settings don’t do what they are supposed to do. You can turn them all the way to maximum, and you still won’t notice any performance difference. So, I am setting waiting for the devs to release a patch to fix this issue. But if you are here to know whether you can play Resident Evil Village or low-end GPUs or not. The answer is a resounding yes. I will post the test results below soon.

Not that anybody asked, but here is Resident Evil Village gameplay on a RTX 2060:
