Let’s jump in and take a look.

Best Video Settings For FarCry 6 on PC (High FPS)

The settings below will help to give you a massive FPS boost.

Enable Game Mode On Your PC

Windows has a game mode feature which has been greatly improved this year. Enabling it will help to get the most from your PC. To enable it click on the Windows button –> Search –> Game Mode Settings –> Turn Game Mode On.

Enable Hardware-accelerated GPU Scheduling

This is another Windows native feature that you will want to turn on. Click on the Windows button –> Search –> Graphics Settings –> Turn on Hardware Accelerated GPU Scheduling. Only applicable for people with an Nvidia Card.

This will help to reduce latency and improve performance.

Run Your PC In High Performance Mode

On your PC you will want to check that you have High performance mode enabled. Some people have their PC set to Power Saver mode which is good for saving electricity but not so good for running your PC games optimally.

To put your PC into High performance mode click on the windows button –> Search Power & Sleep Settings –> Go to Additional Power Settings On The Right Hand Side –> Select High Performance

This will sometimes default back to power saver when you turn your PC off. If you’re experiencing issues in game double check this when booting up.
