The textures in FIFA 23 can look blurry and pixelated even on a decent PC. This guide is for you if you find awful graphics at all video quality settings in EA SPORTS FIFA 23, even at Ultra settings. All the tips mentioned here will try to improve the game's graphics quality.
Fix: FIFA 23 Textures Blurry and Pixelated
1) Make sure Dynamic Resolution Scale is Off in the game settings. Dynamic Resolution Scale causes in-game textures to pixelate to improve performance. Also, adjust all graphics settings as follows:
- Display Mode: Full Screen
- Frame Rate: No Limit on fps
- Dynamic Resolution Scale: Off
- Strand Based Hair: Off
- Rendering Quality: Ultra or High
Instead of changing the settings in the game, you can also manually edit the configuration file of FIFA 23.
- Exit the game
- Navigate to C:\Users\%UserName%\Documents\FIFA 23
- Right-click on fifasetup.ini
- Select Edit and change it as follows.
AUDIO_MIX_MODE = 0
CONFIG_APP_LOCALE = en-US
FULLSCREEN = 1
MSAA_LEVEL = 0
RENDERINGQUALITY = 4
RESOLUTIONHEIGHT = 1080
RESOLUTIONWIDTH = 1920
VOICECHAT = 1
WAITFORVSYNC = 0
WINDOWED_BORDERLESS = 0
STRAND_BASED_HAIR = 0
USE_GOAL_NETS_3D = -1
DYNAMIC_RESOLUTION = 0
WINDOWTITLE = "FIFA 23"
Note: You should change RESOLUTIONHEIGHT and RESOLUTIONWIDTH according to your resolution.
2) Make sure your graphics card (GPU) runs the game in high-performance mode. You can easily do this in Windows settings. Here are the steps about how you tweak your Windows graphics settings.
3) You can improve the graphics quality by making some changes in the NVIDIA Control Panel. If you also encounter stutters in the game, these tweaks will fix it too.
- Right-click on a blank area on the desktop.
- Click NVIDIA Control Panel.
Note: If you can't see it, you must manually install the latest NVIDIA driver. Here is the link to get the latest driver: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/drivers/
- Go to 3D Settings > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings
- Click Add and select FIFA 23. Then change the options in the list by following the next steps.
- Change CUDA - GPUs to your graphics card.
- Select your GPU as OpenGL rendering GPU.
- Set Power management mode to Prefer maximum performance
- Change Texture filtering - Quality to High quality
- Set Vertical sync to Adaptive. If there is no Adaptive option, you can select the Fast.
