Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order PC Performance Review and Optimisation Guide

Stuttering and Loading issues - What ruins Fallen Order's otherwise great gameplay

As a continuation of our CPU testing, we decided to see how Jedi: Fallen Order's performance scaled between 1080p, 1440p and 4K on Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition. Below you can see our results. 

At 1080p and 1440p game performance is identical, primarily due to this game being CPU-limited. At 4K, we can see the game becoming mostly GPU-limited, though the same stutters and near second long performance pauses can remain. 

Jedi: Fallen Orders performance issues appear to be CPU-based in nature, though we have noted that lower memory/DRAM speeds can also lower system performance. Remember that we are playing this game from an SSD, which means that storage shouldn't be the limiting factor here. 

In Kashyyyk, these stutters can happen during level traversal and in combat, while other early section of the game have these dips mostly during level traversal. In both cases, these dips can break immersion, and in the case of the in-combat dips, it harms gameplay. These dips can be mitigated by using faster processors and faster memory, but Respawn shouldn't rely on PC gamers upgrading their hardware to address this kind of issue.

Hopefully the game will be optimised soon.

Once it is I'll be looking forward to playing it.Quote

Cheers Mark. Right now I'd probably get it on 1X, but we'll see if they sort out the PC version first.Quote

Theres a good few annoying bugs so far on pc, but i knocked it a little too soon. Gfx are optimised well and no i unlocked some force abilities its quite fun.

Its got that darksiders feel to it, where you have to revisit locations to get special things but its not bad. the cosmetic side is a little pointless being a single player game though. I wish the lightsaber modifications had an impact on the dmg you do unless im getting it wrong there. To me its just cosmetic changesQuote

I'm playing it on a GTX 1050 laptop 1080p medium settings so far no hickups with a Ryzen 3550h, game seems plenty optimized to me.Quote
