Far Cry 6 isn’t short of launch issues, from a CPU bottleneck that hinders performance, to a ludicrously demanding HD texture pack not loading parts of the world properly at 4K resolution. According to a Reddit post, it turns out Ubisoft Connect’s overlay might be linked to many of the problems that players are experiencing, and disabling it could help you boost fps without much of a trade-off.
User Contrabardus first disabled the overlay to avoid an intrusive low VRAM notification bug, but observes that their frame rate jumped from just short of 60fps on ultra settings with ray tracing options enabled and FidelityFX disabled to a healthy 70fps. Better yet, it stabilised Far Cry 6’s performance to avoid noticeable dips and stutters. A 16% jump in frame rate at this level is considerable, even if their rig runs an Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti graphics card alongside an AMD Ryzen 3950X gaming CPU.
There’s no guarantee that this method will solve all of your Far Cry 6 woes, but it’s certainly worth a shot if you’re not engaging in co-op multiplayer or the challenges that can earn you experience, money, and in-game items.
