I get 90 – 130 fps with these on a GTX1070 & i5-12600k

Other basic improvement tips unrelated to Steelrising:

NVIDIA control panel:

  • preferred refresh rate: highest available
  • sharpening on if preferred: search for regedit fix if you want to add it back to programs and not just under global settings
  • max frequency at 72 fps + vsync at half monitor refresh rate IF you have a 144Hz monitor and get between 80 and 144 frames.
  • pre rendered frames at 1
  • low latency: on

Windows & Software

  • add the game in windows graphics settings: high performance
  • use intelligent standby list cleaner if you have ram stutters. (please inform yourself before using it)
