5) Basic Tips
- Settings the power plan to "High performance" or "Ultimate performance" may improve performance in Genshin Impact.
- Using the CPU core parking manager application can improve your CPU performance.
- I suggest you disable the game mode in Windows 10.
- You should adjust the Windows performance settings as in this guide: Windows Performance Options.
- Cleaning up temporary files on your PC will increase your system's performance.
- You can optimize your Discord and Google Chrome if you are using them.
- You need to make sure your CPU temperatures are kept at low levels.
6) Best Graphics Settings for Performance
I do not recommend setting the anti-aliasing to SMAA or TAA. Antialiasing causes FPS drops in Genshin Impact and even crash the game in some cases. So I suggest you turn it off for now. You can check the graphic settings in the table below.
Settings > Graphics
|Overall Settings||Lowest||Medium or High|
If you have trouble changing the screen mode to Fullscreen, you can press ALT + Enter to switch between Fullscreen and Windowed mode.
7) Task priority
You need to adjust this setting every time you enter the game.
- Launch the game.
- Simultaneously press the ALT and TAB keys to minimize the game.

- Click on Details Tab
- In the list, find the GenshinImpact.exe
- Right-click on the GenshinImpact.exe and Set priority to High or Realtime
I hope these tips have helped you boost FPS in Genshin Impact.
