Far Cry New Dawn - Low FPS Fix for PC

Far Cry New Dawn is out and it is making a name for itself. A good series and a worthy installment to follow the 5th game. The open world 1st person shooter just like its predecessors. There are older landscapes in this game but there are new items and weapons including a new map, new storyboard, and of course new villain or should I say, a pair of them.

Montana is the new map inside the fictional Hope County. And everyone is excited to explore the map however, there are issues in the game and it is understandable. Games, when they come out, they have bugs and errors, this is why most developers do a controlled Beta test to find these out but in case the studio cannot do that, they fix these issues with patches and updates. Ubisoft did release a massive patch days ago to address a lot of the problems but seems the new issue is PC related.

It might be a while before we receive another patch but to fix the FPS issue, there is a little something you can do make the game run as close to how you’d want it.

Make sure that no matter your GPU, Nvidia or AMD, update all the drivers. Make sure your PC has at least the minimum required PC parts to run the title.

Minimum Requirements

  • Windows 7 (SP1), Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • Intel Core i5 2400 @ 3.1 GHz or AMD FX 6350 @ 3.9 GHz (SSE 4.1 support or higher required)
  • 8 GB
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 (2 GB) or AMD Radeon R9 270x (2 GB), or better
  • DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card with latest drivers
  • DirectX June2010 Redistributable
  • 30 GB

Recommended requirements

  • Windows 7 (SP1), Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • Intel Core i7-4790 @ 3.6 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.2 GHz (SSE 4.1 support or higher required)
  • 8 GB
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4 GB) or AMD Radeon R9 290X (4 GB), or better

Once you have done that, try to lower the resolution you are using currently which I am assuming is 1080p at the least, then try to move it down to 720p and see how it runs. I hope will bring considerable change in the experience, or you can try the next trick so, go to the advanced settings and choose a set number of frames you want your game to play on, whether be 30 or 60. This option is off by default so you’d have to switch it on manually.

Next up is ‘FPS Lock’. This allows you to lock the frames of the game and try to play the game like that. This mode keeps the frames at the level you choose and holds the frames there. This option is usually used to keep the game from lagging or losing frames. In case your PC or the game itself doesn’t give you this option then download Riva Tuner statistics software coupled with MSI afterburner. Now you have the amenity to lock the frames as you wish.

Next up is the textures’ option where you can downgrade or remove the geometry and vegetation and environment. Watering it down will help boost the gameplay and FPS. Turning these settings all the way to low will do you some real good.

Nvidia control panel settings, although limited to Nvidia GPU but work well if properly tuned.

  1. Open Nvidia Control Panel. Click on “Manage 3D settings”, choose Far Cry New Dawn from “program settings” – change power management mode to “Prefer Maximum Power”.
  2. Change “Pre-rendered frames” to 1, this improves performance on less powerful systems
  3. Turn ‘shader cache’ on, this will allow improved FPS. You can always revert back to default settings.
