    Change Graphics Driver Settings

    Furthermore, to fix the NBA 2K23 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

    Lower NBA 2K23 Graphics Settings

    NBA 2K23

    If you are still having NBA 2K23 low FPS issues, you should really try lowering the graphics settings. The graphics settings that greatly affect NBA 2K23 performance are: 

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

    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    If you are running the game on an outdated GPU driver, it will lead to the game crashing at startup.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 NBA 2K23 performance, you can also try enabling Game Mode on Windows 10 and 11. It will help in minimizing the background processes so that your NBA 2K23 gets more FPS and better performance.

    You can do it by typing â€śGame 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 NBA 2K23 graphics performance.

    Install NBA 2K23 on SSD

    Disable Startup/Background Applications

    Try disabling all the extra background applications to decrease the load on the system. These include:

    • Antivirus
    • MSI Afterburner
