But first…

Before you attempt any of the solutions mentioned below, you have to make sure that your PC meets the minimum system requirements for FIFA 22. If it does not, there’s no point in attempting any of the solutions, as your PC simply won’t be able to run the game. Even if one of your hardware components does not match the minimum requirements, then the game will run into problems.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • 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

RECOMMENDED REQUIREMENTS

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • 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
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection

Step #1: Update Graphics card drivers

This isn’t so much a step than it is a pre-requisite. As always, we would firstly recommend updating your specific Graphics Card drivers to ensure you are on the latest stable release to play FIFA 22.

There might not be a new driver update but it could be that you are running on old graphics drivers so you should update them in that case too. You can download the most up-to-date drivers from your GPU manufacturer’s website: AMD/NVIDIA. To do a clean install of GPU drivers, you can use Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) which completely removes components that were part of the original driver installation package. Then you can install your new Graphics Card drivers. Reboot Windows and try launching the game again.

Step #2: Set program to high priority

If you are experiencing FPS issues in FIFA 22 then it might be because your CPU isn’t giving attention and love to it. If that’s the case then you can change this in the Task Manager.

  • Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open the Task Manager.
  • Go to the Details tab and find the game process.
  • Right-click it and set the priority to High. It is recommended that you do not set it to Realtime.

Step #3: Change Graphics settings

Nvidia

If you have an Nvidia GPU then you can right-click your Desktop to open the NVIDIA Control Panel and do the following:

  • Click the small “+” icon next to “3D Settings
  • Click on Manage 3D settings.

  • Go to the Program Settings tab.
  • Find and choose FIFA 22 from the list under Select a program to customize.
  • Change the power management mode to performance mode.
  • Turn off Image Sharpening mode as this could tremendously require GPU usage.
  • Enable Threaded Optimization.

AMD

If you have an AMD GPU then you can right-click your Desktop to open the AMD Radeon Settings and do the following:

  • In Radeon Software, click on the Gear icon then select Graphics from the sub-menu and select FIFA 22.
  • Turn off all post-processing options such as Radeon Anti-Lag, Radeon Chill, and Radeon Boost.
  • Turn off Wait for Vertical Refresh.
  • Choose Performance Mode for Texture Filtering Quality.
  • Turn on Surface Format Optimization.

Step #4: Disable Game Mode

If you’re using Windows 10, Game Mode will probably already be enabled on your PC by default. The primary purpose of Game Mode is to optimize the gaming performance of your PC by prioritizing the game over any other background processes. But it does the exact opposite of what it was supposed to do and causes FPS issues in many games.

  • Go to Settings in Windows 10.
  • Select Gaming in the menu.
  • Select Game Mode in the side-bar.
  • Turn Game Mode off.
