Alan Wake 2 PC Performance Review and Optimisation Guide
Preset Scaling – Low to High RT
Performance Scaling – Low Settings to High with ray tracing
If the graph below shows you anything, it is that enabling ray tracing in Alan Wake 2 is an easy way to tank your framerate. This is especially true if you are gaming on an AMD Radeon graphics card. There’s a reason why Nvidia markets ray tracing alongside DLSS Super Resolution and DLSS Frame Generation. Both are essential if you want to target high framerates with ray tracing enabled.
Even without ray tracing, Alan Wake 2 is a hugely demanding PC game. Thankfully, this game looks great when running the game’s Medium and Low presets. Yes, the game looks best when using higher presets, but higher framerates are worth a drop in visual quality.
