Best PUBG Settings For High FPS

In-Depth Guide On How To Get High FPS In PUBG!

I’ve played the game for nearly 3,000 hours, and I can assure you getting High FPS In PUBG is hard. The game still isn’t properly optimized yet, and the frames aren’t consistent even with good hardware. Now, if you are going through a similar position, don’t worry because you have to come to the right place. I’ve listed a set of best PUBG PC settings to help you get the best performance on your PC. 

Update: PUBG just released update 29.1, which contains several performance and stability fixes. The best feature added to PUBG in this update is destructible terrain.

I’ve tested PUBG on the following PC specifications:

  • CPU: Ryzen 3600x.
  • GPU: MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X.
  • RAM: 16GB DDR4 Corsair RGB Pro.
  • Storage: 2TB SSD.
  • Operating System: Windows 10 Pro.
Key Takeaways

You’ll need at least an Intel i5-4430 or AMD FX-6300 CPU, Nvidia GTX 960 or AMD Radeon R7 370, and 8 GB of RAM to run PUBG on a PC.


The following settings are the most FPS hungry among the rest in PUBG:

  • Antialiasing
  • Post-Processing
  • Shadows
  • View Distance

I’ve been playing PUBG since the early access days and performance wasn’t its strong suit back then. However, over the years, the game has evolved and improved in several ways, performance being one of them. There are significantly less stuttering and FPS drops now. The overall performance of the game is also optimized (I’ve also talked about it in my review of PUBG), but there are occasional performance hitches that you need to keep an eye out for.

In this guide, we are going to make several changes in PUBG Settings, Graphics Card Settings, and Windows 10 itself. If you follow the guide properly, I can guarantee you won’t get any more stutters, crashes, Low Frames, and game freezes. Now, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into details.

Windows Optimization Tips For PUBG

I’ll recommend following these Windows optimization tips and settings to improve your performance in PUBG; making your PC overall snappier:

  • Disable Windows Fullscreen Optimisation: When full-screen optimization is disabled, you will also see massive responsiveness in minimizing PUBG and, in some cases, more Frames and Improved Performance. You’ll need to locate PUBG install Directory > Locate Main Executable File > Access Properties > Check Mark Disable Fullscreen Optimizations in Compatibility Tab. 
  • Enable Game Mode: Game Mode is a built-in Windows 10 feature that is designed to provide games with 100% processing power. Game Mode will automatically kill those applications and therefore ensure that your CPU/Memory is properly utilized. You can enable it in Settings > Gaming > Game Mode.
  • Use Windows High-Performance Mode: Graphics Setting is strictly meant for optimizing the Graphic Card Usage. Simply go for High performance as it will make sure your GPU is running at 100%. You’ll find this option in Display Settings > Graphics > Locate PUBG Application > Set to High Performance.

Bonus: PUBG Launch Options To Increase FPS

If you are unaware of launch options. Let me explain it in easy words. The Steam version of PUBG has launch options that Steam says are advanced settings. Well, there aren’t a lot of advanced gimmicks involved; all you have to do is just enter this set of code.

-USEALLAVAILABLECORES -malloc=system -sm4
  • -USEALLAVAILABLECORES is going to unlock all your cores while playing PUBG. Therefore, you can expect more Frames than usual.
  • -malloc=system also improves your performance by optimizing RAM usage.
  • -sm4 forces DX10 graphics instead of DX11 or DX12. DX10 is much lighter than others but you’ll observe a hit in visual quality.

Here’s how to make use of these launch parameters:

  1. Open Steam.
  2. Right-click on PUBG > Properties > General.
    Best PUBG PC Settings
    PUBG Launch Options
  3. Now Under General Tab > Click on Set Launch Options and enter the code given below.
  4. -USEALLAVAILABLECORES -malloc=system -sm4.
    Best PUBG Launch Options
    Take a good look at spacing and make sure you are entering the exact same code.
  5. Once done, simply exit and launch the game to see if you notice any changes.

Chicken Dinners Are Just Around The Corner

Best PUBG PC Settings
With these settings, I’m never worried about Frames. All I had to do was just focus on the game.

Running PUBG on my GTX 1080ti in 2024 might seem odd, but it’s more than enough to generate 100+ FPS since the game is much more optimized now. I did encounter occasional stutters but closing down Discord helped them a little (it may have to do with hardware acceleration which I recommend disabling).

Now where I was getting satisfactory performance with my setup, there were other players in the community who are getting low FPS in PUBG to this date. But the good thing is, I haven’t encountered much posts about PUBG performance issues which is a good sign.

Once you have applied all the changes suggested above. I can assure you that next time you are on your way to grab a chicken dinner. Your PUBG won’t lag, nor will it stutter or crash. ESports players use these settings and really the best ones in the game.

If you are still struggling to get chicken dinners, I highly recommend you to check our guide on “How To Become Absolute Pro At Any Competitive Game”.
