Potential fix for stuttering (Nvidia cards)


Recommended Posts


I bought the game yesterday and spent a lot of time trying to fix constant stuttering (regardless of the in-game settings, even the pathetic preset). Looked everywhere, tried everything and almost gave up but I just found a working combo that has completely eleminated the issue:


In-Game settings:

  • Max FPS: unlimited
  • V-Sync: off

Nvidia Control Panel:

  • Low latency mode: Ultra - default is off.
  • V-Sync: Fast Sync - regular and adaptive didn't work. Off should work too if you don't have fast sync in the options but the screen will tear.
  • FPS limit: 150 - double the refresh rate of my monitor - for fast sync to work and to reduce the GPU usage.
  • Threaded optimization: off - default is auto. I still had some stuttering with it set to auto. Turning it off solved the issue for some reason.


Boom. No more stuttering, high preset. Tested the game for a few minutes in different biomes and there was only one very minor stutter when a new chunk was loading. The FPS graph is almost completely flat now, no huge spikes. I'm so happy, I can finally play this game without being annoyed every ten seconds.


I hope it might be useful to someone.
