Looking for tutorials to boost FPS and improve your performance while playing Diablo II: Resurrected? Here’s a helpful one for you! In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the steps to get more FPS.

Try these methods

You may not need to try them all; simply work your way down the list until you find the one that works for you.

  1. Enable the game mode
  2. Disable startup programs
  3. Update your graphics driver
  4. Enable high performance power plan
  5. Enable hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling
  6. Tweak in-game settings

1. Enable the game mode

Game Mode is a feature that is designed to optimize Windows 10 for gaming. Players who have the latest Windows version can benefit from this feature as it deactivates background activities like app notifications to help your computer boost FPS in your game. So definitely turn it on.

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo + I keys simultaneously to open Settings.
  2. Click Gaming.

  3. Select Game Mode. Then turn Game Mode On.



    After applying the changes, play Diablo II: Resurrected. If you’re still getting low FPS, don’t worry. Below are some other methods for you to try.

2. Disable startup programs

Having too many programs starting automatically can actually slow down your PC. To boost your gaming performance, you should disable them and this can free up precious RAM. Follow the instructions below to do so.

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo + R keys simultaneously to open the Run box.
  2. Type or paste taskmgr and press Enter.

  3. Select the Startup tab. Right-click the programs that you want to stop from opening automatically and select Disable.

    After you’ve done these, restart your PC and launch your game. If your problem persists, move on to the next method.

3. Update your graphics driver

Your graphics card is the core of your PC gaming experience. And it requires the latest driver to keep it working faster and better. If the driver is corrupted or outdated, you would encounter performance issues. Therefore, to troubleshoot the problem you’re having, you need to make sure that you update your graphics driver to the latest version.

There are mainly two ways you can update your graphics drivers: manually and automatically.

Option 1 – Manually update your graphics driver

To update your graphics driver manually, you can go to the official website:

NVIDIA
AMD
Intel

Then find the driver corresponding with your Windows version and download it manually. Once you’ve downloaded the correct driver for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install it. 

Option 2 – Automatically update your graphics driver (recommended)

If you are not familiar with computer hardware, and if you don’t have the time to update your graphics driver manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy
