Far Cry 6 best graphics configurations
This guide will show you the best graphics settings for Far Cry 6 for PC of low-end game. You will have a more fluent experience in the game and could also help you eliminate several performance problems, if you have any, of course.
Before you start, if you are a mid-range-high user with a decent GPU. You can maximize the game. Simply go to the last part of this article, where I have shown a Far Cry 6 video running on an RTX 2060. You will get a good idea of that.
Far Cry Graphics Configuration Guide 6
Far Cry 6 is an FPS game of action and adventure. Like previous titles, there are no changes there. Yes, some new mechanics have been added. However, nothing significant. Play as Dani Rojas, a guerrilla, in Yara, who is a fictitious Caribbean island governed as a dictatorship by the president Anton Castillo. And his work is to stop castle and the regime of him. The world of Far Cry 6 is the largest so far.
In general, the performance of Far Cry 6 is decent. Nothing spectacular. I tried the game on an RTX 3070, RTX 2060, GTX 1650 and GTX 1050TI. And apart from a little freezing, that also in the GTX 1650 and 1050 IT, I did not face any performance problem. However, I faced some trouble and annoying errors.
Now, it is a known fact that not everyone is sitting with a high-end platform. And this is where the PC games shine. You do not always need an expensive hardware to play, as you can modify the game graphics settings you want to play and then get the best performance, even if you do not have a high-end game. Game platform. Let s see now the Graphics Configuration Guide for Far Cry 6:
Update frequency: 144 (My monitor is a 144 Hz monitor. This is going to be 60 for 60 Hz monitors) .
Window mode: full screen (loses a good part of the performance in window or without edges)
Screen resolution: 1920 × 1080 (All this combination of configurations is for resolution of 1080p. If it is at 1440p or higher, you may need to reduce the configuration even more)
Aspect ratio: native (16: 9)
Graphics Quality: Custom
Filtering texture: medium (textures are surprisingly well in medium)
Shadows: Medium (This is a demanding adjustment, keep it in between)
Geometry and vegetation: Medium (High or Ultra, will increase the amount of vegetation in the game by a large margin. The amount of turf that is processed in between, is sufficient. The image is of vegetation and average geometry , by the way)
Environment: High (However, I did not notice any difference between medium and high)
Water: Medium (Keep this high or medium. It does not matter. Anyway, it will not interact much with water)
Land: Medium (high-lived is a very small visual degradation. But you get a decent performance increase)
Volumetric fog: High (Fog in Far Cry 6 is not very intense. High is fair)
HD textures: Off (overvalued configuration. It does not require 11 GB of VRAM at all, as Ubisoft said)
Anti-Aliasing: TAA (Taa makes the game look a bit blurry. I personally use SMAA)
Motion blur: disabled (personal preference. I hate movement blur)
Camera shaking: Complete (I love the movement of my camera. Change it to a minimum, if not)
Poisonous and drunken effects: activated (it has no effect on performance)
DXR reflections: deactivated (this is the Ray-Tracing version of AMD)
DXR shadows: disabled (the most useless scenario of this game. Lol)
FidelityFX CAS: on (I like to keep this on, because this configuration denies the blurred effect of TAA)
V-SYNC: Deactivated (Why would you like to limit your FPS?)
Enable Famberate Block: Off (You can choose to keep this at 60, if you do not mind get more than 60 fps)
Scale of the field of vision: 90 (90 is the optimum point)
Adaptive resolution: deactivated (never turn on this, convert the game into a blurred mess)
Scale resolution: 1.0 (If you do not know, this is basically a multiplier of its native resolution)
FidelityFX Super Resolution 1.0: Disabled (Activate this if you agree with that your game looks from 2012)
Use AMD FIDELITYFX Super Resolution or FSR only if you are using a really weak GPU and do not care about the images. Then this configuration would be of great help. You will get a good increase in performance. Set is in Quality , if you plan to use it.

I see many items and videos, where content creators are testing Far Cry 6 at RTX 3080S, 3090S, RX 6800 XTS, etc. What is the point? We all know how the GPU market is at this time. How many users are really sitting with those GPU? According to the latest Steam Hardware Survey, the 5 most used GPUs at this time are GTX 1060, 1050TI, 1650, RTX 2060 and GTX 1050. And I did not see a single large content creator by comparing Far Cry 6 on these cards. Anyway, let s go to performance analysis.
FAR CRY 6: Performance analysis and reference points
minimum FPS (1% low)
| Average FPS | FPS maximum
— | — | —
36 FPS | 43 FPS | 51 FPS
Let s look at how Far Cry 6 is seen with the previously given configuration:
In fact, I was surprised enough after seeing how well the game is seen in the middle setting and how well the GTX 1050 IT worked in the test. An average of 40 fps should be good enough to enjoy a fluid game.
I also tried Far Cry 6 in three other systems of mine, and the game was executed without performance problems in all three. I noticed a small freeze while testing the game at the GTX 1650 and 1050 Ti. But that is something that could be easily overlooked. Each time you enter a completely new area, the game is frozen by a fraction of a second. Apart from that, the game was developed without problems.
In general, I would say that Far Cry 6 is quite optimized and should not have any problem playing this GPU game low as the GTX 1050 IT.
If you wish, you can see my Far Cry reference video 6. The game runs on a RTX 2060 paired with a Ryzen 5 5600x. All configurations are maximized and HD textures are enabled:
That s all folks!
