    Check System Requirements

    Before anything, check the Evil Dead: The Game system requirements to see whether you have the required gear to run the game or not.

    Change Graphics Driver Settings

    Furthermore, to fix the Evil Dead: The Game low FPS issue on PC, we highly suggest that you tweak the graphics setting in Nvidia or AMD control panel. For Nvidia users, in Manage 3D Settings of the driver, set Shader Cache Size to Unlimited. This setting alone has increased performance for numerous players.

    For other settings, go to Nvidia Control Panel -> Adjust Image Settings and Preview -> Select 3D Image settings -> Advanced 3D settings. Then do the following changes.
    Max Framerate: 165
    Low-Latency Mode: Ultra
    Texture Filtering Quality: High Performance
    Power Management Mode: Maximum Performance
    OpenGL Rendering GPU: Graphics Card

    For Evil Dead: The Game AMD settings, change the settings to the following:
    Texture Filtering Quality: Performance
    Radeon Anti-Lag: Enabled
    Radeon Chill: Disabled
    Radeon Boost: Enable
    Surface Format Optimization: Enabled
    Tessellation Mode: Off
    Anisotropic Filtering: Disabled
    OpenGL Triple Buffering: Disabled
    Morphological Anti-Aliasing: Disabled

    If you are still having Evil Dead: The Game low FPS issue, you should really try lowering the graphics settings. The graphics settings that greatly affect Evil Dead: The Game’s performance are: 

    • Anti-Aliasing
    • Shadows Quality
    • Texture Quality
    • Texture Filtering
    • Effects

    Update the graphics card

    If you are running the game on an outdated GPU driver, it will lead to the game crashing at startup. Update both the GPU and sound drivers if they require additional updates besides the Windows update. The game will run smoothly and hopefully crash-free with updated drivers. Both Nvidia’s latest drivers and AMD’s latest drivers can be found on their official websites.

    Enable Game Mode and GPU Scheduling

    In order to increase Evil Dead: The Game performance, you can also try enabling Game Mode on Windows 10 and 11. It will help in minimizing the background processes so that your Evil Dead: The Game gets more FPS and better performance.

    You can do it by typing “Game Mode“ in Windows Search and selecting Game Mode settings. There will be an option to turn on the Game Mode.

    Furthermore, you can also enable Hardware Accelerated GPU scheduling to enhance Evil Dead: The Game graphics performance.
