Halo Infinite: The Best Expert Tips for Better Performance



Halo Infinite: The Best Expert Tips for Better Performance

Halo: Infinite was released a few days ago and has since received mostly positive reviews from players, but also quite a few negative ones. These mainly affect the performance of the first-person shooter, because Halo: Infinite knows how to convince in terms of play.

Halo: Infinite is struggling with FPS drops

The colleagues at Computerbase took a closer look at the performance and found that the frame pacing of Halo: Infinite does not work really well. So there are always noticeable drops in performance due to inconsistent frame times. The problem primarily affects systems that are not able to operate the first-person shooter with 60 FPS and more. Smaller frame rate drops above 60 FPS are simply not so noticeable.

And that will probably be quite a few computers, as can be seen from the Computerbase benchmarks. To get to 60 FPS in Full HD, you need at least an Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 Super or an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT.

If you want to play in WQHD, you should at least have an RTX 3070 or RX 6700 XT, and even the RTX 3080 is still too little for 4K .

The best graphics settings from the experts for an FPS boost

For powerful systems

The colleagues from Digital Foundry have therefore taken a closer look at the graphics settings of Halo: Infinite and, in their opinion, worked out the best compromise between display quality and performance – this is what it looks like:

  • Anti-aliasing: high
  • Texture filtering: Ultra
  • Texture quality: Ultra
  • Geometry quality: high
  • Reflections: high
  • Depth of field: Medium
  • Shadow quality: high
  • Lighting quality: high
  • Volumetric fog quality: High
  • Cloud quality: high
  • Land cover quality: High
  • Effect quality: Ultra
  • Terrain quality: Ultra
  • Async calculations: An
  • Resolution scaling: On

How much additional power can be generated with it is questionable. Most likely, however, the resolution scaling should bring.

For less powerful systems

There are a number of other tips online to improve performance and at the same time not to let the display quality suffer too much. They primarily apply to older and less powerful systems:

  • Quality preset: User-defined
  • Anti-aliasing: Low
  • Texture filtering: Low
  • Ambient occlusion : Low
  • Texture quality: medium
  • Geometry quality: Low
  • Reflections: Off
  • Depth of Field: Low
  • Shadow quality: medium
  • Lighting quality: Low
  • Volumetric fog quality: Low
  • Cloud quality: low
  • Dynamic wind: Off
  • Land cover quality: Low
  • Effect quality: Low
  • Decal Quality: Low
  • Animation quality: auto
  • Terrain quality: medium
  • Simulation quality: Low
  • Flocking quality: Off
  • ASync calculation: Off
  • Shader Quality: Low

General tips for more FPS

It can also be worthwhile to make settings in the graphics card driver in individual cases. In the Nvidia Control Panel, go to Manage 3D Settings -> Program Settings and add Halo: Infinite. Now you can activate thread optimization and set the power management mode to prefer maximum performance.

In the case of AMD, the options are somewhat more limited. In the menu item Gaming you can, however, select Halo: Infinite and change the graphics profile to the game, if this is not already preset.

And as always: Install the latest drivers, especially for your graphics card. Because corresponding optimizations for a new game cannot naturally be contained in an older driver.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
