The problem of reducing the frame rate drop in the PC version of Returnal game

This team has faced problems such as reduced frame rate (so-called stuttering) for the initial run of Returnal on PC. Even they faced a drop in frame rate again by lowering the quality of the shaders. This problem somewhat affects the quality of the game’s battles, but not in a way that is very annoying for the user. On the other hand, the DualSense controller features are well implemented in this game. If your PC system has good hardware, the native Dolby Atmos mode will play a very effective role in increasing the quality of the game environment.

  Returnal PC version

The wcctech analysis team checked that the reason for the drop in the frame rate of the PC version of the Returnal game is the performance of the Unreal Engine 4 graphics engine. Unreal Engine 4 is known to favor single-threaded CPU performance. However, according to FrameView reviews, this engine uses the least amount of CPU power. The developers of the PC version of Returnal announced that this game runs better with 32 GB of graphics memory.

Climax Studio has undertaken the task of producing the PC version of Returnal. This studio previously made the PC version of Castlevania: Lords of the Shadow in 2013. This British studio has a history of creating titles such as Silent Hill: Origins, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Sudeki. In short, users should not compare the porting skills of the mentioned studio with Nixxes studio. Nixxes studio has a great history in porting the PC versions of exclusive Sony titles.

Users are hoping that Sony will soon release an update to fix the frame rate drop problem of Returnal. There have been reports that NVIDIA users are unable to improve the graphics performance of Returnal by enabling ReBAR like the Dead Space remake, as the feature is currently whitelisted in the NVIDIA Profile Inspector despite the lack of an official Game Ready driver.
