Issues unresolved

Performance drops while using ray tracing

Restarting the game occasionally on long play sessions fixes the issue. Lowering the texture quality option also helps keeping VRAM usage low.[9][10]

Stutter during combat and encounters with specific NPC

The game may stutter when killing an enemy, getting hurt, grabbed, or when encountering a specific NPC. Higher CPU clocks can minimize the stutter.[11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18]

Issues fixed

Ray tracing greyed out in the options menu

Update Windows 10 to version 2004 or newer.[19][20]

  10. Verified by User:Fayaine on 2021-05-10
    I can confirm myself that after a long time of playing or when overshooting the texture quality setting which maxes out the VRAM there is a significant performance impact once it fills. Restarting the game fixes the issue.
