Dead Space Ultimate Optimization, FPS & Best Settings

Welcome to our Dead Space Ultimate Optimization, FPS & Best Settings guide. Dead Space the 2008 game recently received a remake by EA. like most games with Frostbite graphics engine has many optimization problems. Today we see how to improve the fps as much as possible without losing the graphics quality of the game.

Stuttering Problems

The game unfortunately suffers from continuous stuttering regardless of what hardware you have and this unfortunately if not with future patches can not be fixed at the moment. (the game loads the shaders at first start so it is other technical problems).

DLSS GHOSTING AND UGLY TEXTURES FIX

the game uses an old version of DLSS, so if you support it you just go here ⬇️

download this file⬇️


Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

Insert the file nvngx_dlss.dll in the folder (yourdrive): SteamLibrary steamapps common Dead Space (2023) confirm copy and replace.

ANTI ALIASING TAA

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

TAA LOW and TAA HIG have the same visual quality and also the same fps for this I recommend hig.

DLSS and FSR 2.0

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

DLSS and FSR remove shamering a lot but with FSR you lose a lot of quality in some textures
Stock DLSS in game does the exact same thing, but if you manual update DLSS as I explained above to the new version you will see much better like native resolution

Variable Rate Shading (vrs) OFF or ON?

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

As you can see this option drastically lowers the quality of the textures for this I invite you to keep the VRS off

Light Quality

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

Sometimes setting the light quality to low can cause this effect of complete darkness for this reason never set the light to low

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

as for the rest there are NO visible differences by setting the quality between medium and ultra for this I recommend medium

Shadow Quality

This setting in this game works in a slightly different way
Does not change the quality of the shadows of the map and not even those of the detected objects or those of the character

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS
Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

This option affects contact shadows only as you can see from these images⬇️


Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGSDead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGSFor this

Change preset option does not have a big impact on performance. I recommend medium or high

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

Reflection Quality

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

The reflections in this game are not done very well as you can see they are very grainy as well to ultra

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

Setting the reflections to medium will decrease this grainy effect and increase your fps for this I recommend medium

Volumetric Resolution

This option only changes the fog resolution.
And this game has many fog effects and needs a lot of them for its gloomy atmosphere in fact you will see these effects everywhere

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

Ultra will make you drop the performance very much without a justified graphic change for this I suggest you to set it to Medium or low to save as many fps as possible in case you need.

Ambient Occlusion SSAO or RTAO?

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

RTAO is the only ray tracing option available on this game and we can say that of the 2 is definitely the best.
But SSAO does its job anyway and covers all surfaces pretty well.
In conclusion if you have an RTX with dlss you can try to use the option RTAO ray tracing otherwise SSAO is more than fine

Depth Of Field

Dead Space | ULTIMATE OPTIMIZATION GUIDE and BEST SETTINGS

This effect is more related to game cutscenes.
For this both options are fine as they will not make you lose fps during gameplay.

Dynamic Resolution Scale

DO NOT use this setting as it will not give any benefit in terms of fps even if set to 60. However this option will only make you play at a very low resolution and with a questionable quality

Optimized Settings vs Ultra preset

Light Quality:

  • MEDIUM

Shadow Quality

  • :MEDIUM OR HIG

Reflection Quality

  • :MEDIUM

Volumetric Res

  • : LOW OR MEDIUM

Ambient Occlusion

  • :SSAO but use RTAO if you can (rtx gpu)

TAA

  • : HIG

⚠️⚠️NOTE!⚠️⚠️
If you want to use DLSS make sure to manual update it as I showed you above
