Cyberpunk 2077 Optimization Guide Increase Fps Remove Blurry Effects

The world of Cyberpunk 2077 is vast and jaw-dropping to behold. Unfortunately, it’s possible that you’d encounter issues along the way. As such, you might want some optimizations that’ll help increase FPS and remove any blurry effects. To be clear, I’ve mentioned various graphical settings and performance results in our Cyberpunk 2077 technical review. These are just additional tweaks in case you’re having problems with performance still.

Cyberpunk 2077 optimization: How to increase your FPS and remove blur effects

First things first, we’ve cited in a recent article that Nvidia has recently released a driver with Cyberpunk 2077 optimizations. If you have an Nvidia graphics card, make sure to update your driver to help improve performance.

Go open GeForce Experience and select Cyberpunk 2077. You can then choose the optimized settings to make the most out of the card you have.

Next, head to the graphics options and look at resolution scaling. In our technical review, I lauded the DLSS settings since these really helped maximize framerates while retaining visual fidelity and quality. If you have an RTX card, try to set DLSS to “Auto” or “Performance.”

If you don’t have an RTX card, you can use Dynamic FidelityFX CAS and pick an ideal FPS that’s viable while playing.

There’s also a suggestion from Reddit user Cohibaluxe. Basically, you’ll want to lower the quality of Cascaded Shadows Resolution. The user mentioned getting a huge boost to their framerates, although I did get an ever so slight bump, too.

As for the blurry effects, you can remove these by disabling motion blur, film grain, and chromatic aberration.

Here’s an example with these settings enabled:

Alternatively, if you’re using Nvidia’s GeForce overlay, you can open it by pressing Alt+Z. Then, click on Game Filters. Add a filter and select Sharpen. Tweak the sliders until you get the ideal image sharpness while you’re playing Cyberpunk 2077.

Note: If the filter makes your framerates drop a bit, you can just open your Nvidia Control Panel. Then go to Manage 3D Settings -> Program Settings -> Cyberpunk 2077 -> Image Sharpening. Change the settings here to sharpen images without using a filter.
