You can skip this step if you don’t want to change graphics settings. These High Performance graphics settings are for PCs which close to the minimum system requirements.
If you have a good PC, you can increase the settings slightly.
Go to in-game graphics options and make sure the settings are as follows.
Settings > Visuals
In STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order, the main settings that impact performance are Shadow Quality, Visual Effects, and Post Processing. I recommend that you set these settings to lowest. Medium is the lowest option.
Settings > Video
|Dynamic Resolution Scaling||On||Off|
Apply changes and Exit the game.

The Windows patches for Spectre and Meltdown are causing your PC to slow down. These updates were required for security, but they cause stuttering on PC games like STAR WARS Jedi Fallen Order.

You are responsible, I do not accept responsibility. You can find the app here: https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm
Some of controllers (e.g. Xbox One Bluetooth Controller) are causing lags randomly. If you using your controller via bluetooth, try to using it via a cable or unplug it.
