How to Increase FPS and Fix Performance Issues in The Finals

Optimizing your graphics settings in The Finals, updating your drivers, adjusting control panel settings, and tweaking Windows settings can all help improve your game's performance. By following these tips, you'll be able to enjoy a smoother and more enjoyable gameplay experience.

Best Graphics Settings For Performance

The first thing you'll want to do is optimize your graphics settings. This can greatly impact your game's performance.

You can experiment with these settings until you find a balance between visuals and performance. Keep in mind that lower settings also can make it easier to spot enemies and react quickly. Let's tweak the graphics settings!

Disabling V-Sync is a simple yet effective way to boost your FPS and reduce input lag in THE FINALS. While the vertical sync can improve visual quality, it can also cause a noticeable delay between your mouse movements and on-screen actions, making your gameplay feel sluggish and unresponsive.

You should turn on NVIDIA Reflex Low latency. NVIDIA users can see this option in the graphics settings.

Unleash the full potential of your gaming rig by adjusting the Resolution Scaling Method such as NVIDIA DLSS, AMD FSR2, or Intel XeSS. These cutting-edge features use AI and machine learning algorithms to boost your FPS, reduce input lag, and enhance image quality. For the best boost, you should set the quality to Performance or Ultra Performance. If the graphics quality bothers you, you can set it to Balanced or Quality.

If it is possible, use Nvidia's new Frame Generation (DLSS 3) technology instead of DLSS, which is available exclusively on RTX 40-series GPUs. If you have a GPU that supports it, enable NVIDIA DLSS Frame Generation under Display & Resolution in the graphics settings.

Motion Blur is a visual effect that adds a blur or smearing effect to moving objects on the screen. Get rid of the distracting and unsightly motion blur effect in THE FINALS by disabling it in the game's settings.

NVIDIA RTX Global Illumination uses advanced ray-tracing techniques to simulate realistic lighting and shadows, creating a more immersive and lifelike environment. However, to maximize performance and minimize potential stuttering or lag, it's recommended to set NVIDIA RTX Global Illumination to "Static" under the Ray Tracing section in the graphics settings.

You should also lower View Distance, Anti-Aliasing, Shadows, and Global Illumination Resolution to increase performance in The Finals.

If you notice performance issues with DirectX 12, you should change Graphics API to DirectX 11.

Note: The Finals seems a CPU-intensive/CPU-heavy game. You may not see significant performance improvements even if you lower your game settings, especially if you have a weak CPU. This is because the game is heavily reliant on CPU processing power to run smoothly, which can be a challenge for systems with limited processing capabilities.

GPU Drivers

To ensure that your system is optimized for playing The Finals on PC, it's important to keep your graphics drivers up-to-date. Graphics drivers play a crucial role in enabling your graphics card to work efficiently and smoothly with the game, which can significantly impact your game's performance.

To update your graphics drivers, you should visit the website of your GPU manufacturer and download the latest driver updates for your specific graphics card model.


Make sure to uninstall any previous drivers before installing the new ones. It is crucial to remove any previously installed drivers before installing new ones to ensure that the new drivers function properly and avoid any compatibility issues. One effective method to uninstall previous drivers is by using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller), which is a reliable software tool that can thoroughly remove all traces of previous drivers from the system.

NVIDIA Control Panel Settings

If you're using an NVIDIA graphics card, optimizing your graphics settings is essential to achieve the best performance in THE FINALS. Simply navigate to the Nvidia Control Panel and click on "Manage 3D settings". From there, select "Program Settings" and find The Finals on the list. Here, you can tweak some key settings to boost your FPS and reduce latency:

  • Set "Low Latency Mode" to "Ultra" for the fastest response time.
  • Choose your graphics card as the "OpenGL Rendering GPU" to ensure optimal performance.
  • Set "Power Management Mode" to "Maximum Performance" to allow your GPU to run at full capacity.
  • Adjust "Texture Filtering - Quality" to "High Performance" for a smoother and more responsive gameplay experience.
  • Hit the Apply button.

With these simple tweaks, you can unleash the full power of your Nvidia GPU and dominate the battlefield in THE FINALS.

AMD Control Panel Settings

AMD users can do the same with the AMD Control Panel. Here are the steps on how AMD users can optimize the AMD Control Panel to increase FPS in The Finals game:

  1. Open the AMD Control Panel by right-clicking on the desktop and selecting "AMD Radeon Software."
  2. Navigate to the "Gaming" tab in the AMD Radeon Software.
  3. Select The Finals
  4. Set Texture Filtering Quality to Performance.
  5. Enable features such as Radeon Boost and Radeon Anti-Lag to further enhance the performance of the game.
