FIFA 22 – How to Increase Performance | Lag FIX | Graphics Settings

FIFA 22 is finally here on all major platforms. Looking forward to yet another year of exciting Ultimate Team , Career mode , Pro Clubs and lot more.  With the improved gameplay features and visual , FIFA 22 promises to be an amazing title. EA had always been concerned when the talk is on performance. No doubt the game plays well on the consoles , but for those who own a PC , the game would run smoothly most of the time. However there are users for whom the game could be lagging and stuttering with frequent fps drops as well. Therefore I will walk you through some easy steps which would help you get a decent performance boost for FIFA 22.

Since it is quite impossible to understand the exact cause of the lag the best we can do is to eliminate all possibilities. But before we actually do anything there is one condition which needs to be met. That would be your PC specs. A lot of the times we just ignore the fact that we do not have the right hardware to run the game. Trying to force the game on your PC will only come at the cost of performance.

Can you run FIFA 22 ?

Lets quickly check the System Requirements for FIFA 22 :


    • OS: Windows 10 – 64-Bit
    • Processor: Intel Core i3-6100  3.7GHz or AMD Athlon X4 880K 4GHz
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
    • Storage: 50 GB available space


    • OS: Windows 10 – 64-Bit
    • Processor: Intel i5-3550 3.40GHz or AMD FX 8150 3.6GHz
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 or AMD Radeon R9 270X
    • Storage: 50 GB available space

It seems like you do not really need a super powerful PC to run the game. You would be able to run it just fine on an average PC . However , I would still recommend having a setup similar to the Recommended Requirements of the game. In that way you get the best out of it. A laggy sports game is the last thing we need.

Best Graphics Settings for FIFA 22 :

When you have selected Game Settings go to Display Configuration. Now make these changes

  • Resolution : 1920×1080 (Basically your native screen resolution would be fine)
  • Check for Full Screen
  • Rendering Quality : Medium (I would not go Higher than this)
  • MSAA Options : Off (This eats up a lot of FPS. Honestly if you are just bothered about playing the game online and not so much about visuals having this off makes more sense. However do not select Auto . )
  • Frame Rate : No Limit on fps

Use these settings to get a decent performance boost on FIFA 22.

Use these Launch Options for Steam and Origin :

You can call this the ultimate technique to best performance. Trust me when I say this works like a charm :

Steam :

Steam users can try these launch options to make sure your PC is focused on the game completely. This gives you an amazing boost in performance. Follow these steps :

  • Go to Steam Library
  • Select FIFA 22 and right on the game. Then select Properties 
  • Now, under Launch Options type this exactly the way I will show you and that includes the caps and the spaces : -high -USEALLAVAILABLECORES
  • Make sure you Restart Steam

Origin :

Origin Users have to do the following :

  • Go to Game Library
  • Select FIFA 22
  • Under Play option you will see a gear like Settings icon next to the star like Favorite icon
  • Click on Settings and then select Game Properties
  • Now go to Advanced Launch Options and type whatever I show you exactly the way I did including caps and spaces : -high -USEALLAVAILABLECORES
  • Restart Origin

Performance Boost for Laptop Users :

Most of the time even for users with really good gaming laptops will experience poor performance. Why is this so? Well, basically the game would run on your integrated graphics rather than your dedicated one. This is how you can change it :

  • Type graphics on windows search bar
  • Select Graphics Settings
  • Under Graphics Performance Preference  click on Browse
  • Select the FIFA 22.exe file
  • Click on Options and Select High Performance
  • This will ensure you run the game on your Dedicated GPU

Are Overlays On?

Overlays are pretty cool but what we might not know is that overlays can possibly bring down performance for the game. I have the experience of facing frame drops the moment I see someone come online or face horrible lag right after chatting with someone while in game. Therefore Overlays like Discord , Nvidia , Steam and Origin should be turned off completely for better performance.

Repair Files or Re-Install FIFA 22

If none of these work for you, try to do a file check on FIFA 22. Any missing or corrupted file would be downloaded or replaced. This is how you do it :

Steam :

  • Select FIFA 22 from Game Library
  • Right click and select Properties
  • Now choose Local Files tab and then click on Verify Integrity of game files
  • Will take a while depending on the size of the game

Origin :

  • Select FIFA 22 from the Origin Game Library
  • Click on the Settings icon
  • Now click on Repair 

Well if this doesn’t do the job for you probably a Re-installation will. Do not hesitate to download the game all over again if none of the above steps work for you. And if it still doesn’t work then you might have to wait for a patch fix from EA. If you feel the guide was helpful do let us know in the comment section down below.
