Lost Ark is a beautiful MMORPG that not only looks stunning but has some of the best effects of any MMO. If you are playing on beefy hardware, you’ll know that it can be quite a pain to play at a locked FPS despite meeting all of the requirements. That is one complaint that most Lost Ark players have. Worry not because this guide will show you how to unlock your FPS in Lost Ark so you can have buttery-smooth gameplay.
The best part is that even if you do not have an expensive system, you can still use this method to increase your FPS. Uncapping it should allow you to notice a difference in FPS even if you are playing on minimum requirements. With that said, let’s dive right in and take a look at how to unlock FPS in Lost Ark.
How to Uncap Lost Ark FPS for Max Graphics
Many players have reported that the game is stuck in 60 FPS despite their monitors having a higher refresh rate. This is due to the fact that the game caps you at 60 FPS and runs in Borderless Window mode by default. First of all, you should adjust Lost Ark’s settings to make the most out of the game. Once you have done that, let’s find out how you can uncap your FPS.
Once you launch the game, open the settings and select Fullscreen mode instead of Borderless Window. This will allow you to capitalize on your monitor’s refresh rate. Now, you will want to head over to your GPU’s settings. Whether you have an Nvidia card or an AMD one, worry not because we’ll show you how you can adjust the settings in both of them.
How to Unlock FPS in Nvidia Graphics Card?
- Open the Nvidia Control Panel by right-clicking the desktop
- Select Manage 3D Settings
- Click the Program Settings tab and press on Lost Ark (lostark.exe)
- Scroll down to Vertical Sync and turn it Off
- Click on Apply to save the changes
Launching the game now will result in you getting more FPS. While the game isn’t a first-person shooter or a MOBA where refresh rate matters a lot, playing on locked FPS can be annoying if you have a strong PC. Fortunately, this method will allow you to uncap your FPS and make the most out of your refresh rate and your PC.
How to Unlock FPS in AMD Graphics Card?
- Launch the AMD Radeon Software
- Select Lost Ark under the Gaming tab
- Set the Radeon Enhanced Sync to Enabled
Keep in mind that some users have reported that turning on this setting reduced their frame rate but that should be fixed after you restart your system. Plus, AMD has released several driver updates which should fix this issue. However, in any case, if you are facing any FPS drops or other issues, let us know in the comments below and we will gladly assist you.
Once you have adjusted these settings, make sure that you close all background apps and then run the game to avoid sudden frame drops.
