Tune Resolution Scale
You can change the resolution scale of the windows by going into windows settings. Sometimes playing the game on a higher resolution than your monitor makes it appear stuttering but in reality, the game is not stuttering it’s just that your monitor is not the resolution that is being outputted. So changing the resolution to the same as your display will fix this problem.
Update GPU Drivers
Updating GPU drivers fix the lags most of the time. The graphic card providers update the drivers of their products frequently and staying up to date with the drivers is a thing everyone must do. The driver updates usually come with adjustments related to new games. You can update the drivers of your graphic card by going to the official website of your graphics provider.
Disabling background processes
Some apps like to sit on that RAM and use the memory. Force stopping these apps by opening task manager clears up memory and boosts performance. This can fix the problem of lag you may be facing in the game.
Disabling Overlay Apps
Some apps like Steam and Discord like to run in the background and have overlays. Closing these overlay apps also clears up memory and boosts the performance of the device. They free the memory on RAM when closed and allow the game to run more smoothly.
Reduce Graphics Settings
Lowering the graphics settings is always a way to fix those lag issues. Lowering graphics reduces the resources that the game uses and boosts the FPS and gameplay fluidity of the game. You can set the graphics as per your hardware specifications.
Install the game on SSD
Installing the game on the SSD Drive significantly increases the performance of the game. As an SSD has far better read and write time than an HDD it is a good move to k install the game on an SSD. SSD offers smooth and fluid gameplay that the players can enjoy without lag.
