A piece of alarming news for the players has been the benchmark tests carried out by DSOG for Far Cry 6. Dropping the game’s resolution from 1440p to 1080p made a mere increase in average FPS of 2, from 77 to 79 on an Octa-Core i9-9900K processor. This is highly unusual and could indicate an optimization issue for the game.

We hope the above settings would help out in improving the game’s performance while sparing some visual flare for you guys. We would also recommend closing RAM-hoarding applications like Google Chrome if you’re still experiencing some stutters.
