Issues unresolved[edit]

Performance drops while using ray-tracing[edit]

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

Issues fixed[edit]

Update Windows 10 to version 2004 or newer.[11][12]

  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.
