Playing video games at maximum frame rates can provide a substantial advantage during gameplay. However, in the case of Lost Ark, the game is limited to a specific frame rate as it is set to 60 FPS by default due to its borderless window mode.
The 60 FPS limit in Lost Ark can put players at a disadvantage, especially in PvP mode. However, there are several ways to surpass this limit and achieve the highest possible FPS while playing the game. So without any further ado, let's dive into the details.
How to Remove the FPS cap in Lost Ark
To unlock the maximum FPS in Lost Ark, players need to perform two tasks, one within the game and the other in their graphics card's driver software. Here are the steps to follow:
Open the game and go to settings. Then, go to the 'video' tab and change the screen from 'borderless window' to 'full screen'. After that, close the game.
Depending on the player's GPU, the next steps will differ:
AMD GPU: Launch the AMD Radeon Software, select the gaming tab, and choose Lost Ark. Then, enable the Radeon Enhanced Sync.
NVIDIA GPU: Open the Nvidia Control Panel, choose 'Manage 3D Settings', go to 'Program Settings', select Lost Ark from the available executable files, and turn off the Vertical Sync. Click on 'Apply' to save the changes.
By following these steps, the 60-FPS cap will be removed, and players can enjoy the highest available frames per second. To ensure smooth gameplay, players should also close any background apps that may affect the game's performance.
How To See FPS in Lost Ark
After removing the FPS cap, you can see your in-game FPS by following these steps:
- Launch the Steam client.
- Click on "Steam" in the top-left corner of the client.
- Select "Settings" from the drop-down menu.
- Click on "In-Game" on the left side of the Settings window.
