Update Your GPU Drivers

Usually, when a new game comes out, both NVIDIA and AMD release new drivers specifically optimized for that game. Since Twelve Minutes is a new release, you should update your GPU drivers to make sure your game runs smoothly on your system. You can download the most up-to-date drivers from your GPU manufacturer’s website; AMD or NVIDIA.

Change The Preferred Graphics Option

If you’re playing on a PC with an APU or a CPU with integrated graphics (iGPU) installed, the game may be utilizing your integrated graphics to run it instead of your discrete GPU. Consequently, you could be running into FPS issues, such as stutters or drops, because the integrated graphics aren’t powerful enough. Below, we’ve mentioned a fix for both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs.


  • Open the NVIDIA Control Panel. You can do this by right-clicking on your desktop.
  • Click the small “+” icon next to “3D Settings“.
  • Click on “Manage 3D settings“.
  • Go to the Program Settings tab.
  • Find and choose Twelve Minutes from the list under “Select a program to customize“.
  • Under “Preferred graphics option“, choose“High-performance NVIDIA processor“.


  • Open Radeon Settings. You can do this by right-clicking on your desktop.
  • Go to the Preferences and select Additional Settings.
  • Go to the Power and head over to Switchable Graphics Application Settings.
  • Select Twelve Minutes.
  • Under the Graphics Settings, select the “High-Performance” profile.

Disable Game Mode

If you’re using Windows 10, Game Mode will probably already be enabled on your PC by default. This feature will almost always cause problems with playing games on your PC and it is much better to just turn this option off and leave it that way.

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