How to Fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor Performance Issues, Stuttering & Frame Drops

Star Wars Jedi Survivor is now available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. And while reviewers almost unanimously agree that the game is as great as the original (and even better!), unfortunately, many also report about the game’s underlying issues on PC. Namely, it seems that the SW Jedi Survivor PC port is abysmally bad. It has arrived with numerous technical issues plaguing the experience, making the game almost unplayable. Hence, until Respawn fixes these issues, we advise you not to play the game on a PC. However, there are also a couple of things you can do so that when they finally fix the game, you can play SW Jedi Survivor without stuttering, frame drops and other performance issues.

Check Star Wars Jedi Survivor PC System Requirements

We’re already in the second quarter of 2023, and games are becoming more demanding as developers and publishers slowly drop PS4 and Xbox One and commit fully to the next-gen. This also reflects on the game’s PC version regarding hardware requirements. Hence, ensure that your rig can run SW Jedi Survivor and set your display settings accordingly, or you might suffer SW Jedi Survivor stuttering, frame drops, and other performance issues.

  • Minimum System Requirements:
    • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
    • Processor: 4 core / 8 threads | Intel Core i7-7700 | Ryzen 5 1400
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: 8GB VRAM | GTX 1070 | Radeon RX 580

  • Recommended System Requirements:

    • Graphics: 8GB VRAM | RTX2070 | RX 6700 XT
    • Storage: 155 GB available space

Update Your GPU Drivers

One of the biggest mistakes you can make before playing a new AAA title is not to update your GPU’s drivers. Nvidia and AMD often release the latest drivers specially tailored towards the latest AAA game, in this case – Jedi Survivor. Outdated drivers can be the reason behind various technical issues, including Jedi Survivor’s stuttering and frame drops. You can update your drivers either via your GPU app or directly via the links below:

Disable Overlays and 3rd-Party Apps

It is a well-known fact that many third-party apps operating in the background may impede your gaming sessions. Not only will they use your PC’s resources, which could otherwise be utilized for gaming, but they can also cause various issues, including stuttering. Hence, turning off all unnecessary background apps while gaming is almost always the right thing to do. Furthermore, overlays such as Discord overlay, Steam overlay, NVIDIA overlay, AMD Adrenalin, and others can also hamper your performance in gaming. Turn them all off, and you should see an immediate boost in performance and stability.

Verify Star Wars Jedi Survivor Files

If you still suffer from Jedi Survivor stuttering and frame drops, use the “Verify integrity of game files” option on Steam to ensure that there are no missing or corrupted files. There has been a Day 1 patch, and oftentimes huge patches can cause issues, including mismatched versions or conflicts with older files. To prevent this, follow these steps:

  • Right-click on Star Wars Jedi Survivor in your Steam library.
  • Select “Properties…”.
  • Select the “Local Files” tab.
  • Click on the ” Verify integrity of game files..”.
  • Allow Steam to do its work.
  • When the process is complete, restart your PC.
  • Launch Steam, and start Star Wars Jedi Survivor.
