Warframe Performance (FPS) Issues


Recommended Posts

If you encounter a performance issue in Warframe, this could be occurring for a variety of reasons. Occasionally, this might not necessarily be an issue with the game itself, but a compatibility problem with your system. Here are some tips to help you rule this out:

Note: Make sure your PC meets the Warframe System Requirements before following the steps below.

  1. Verify and Optimize your Download Cache via. the Warframe launcher settings. This window can be accessed by clicking the little wheel at the top-right corner of your launcher, and it allows us to make sure the issue isn't being caused by missing or corrupt game files.

  2. Update your drivers and operating system to resolve any compatibility issues.
    • To review your Windows Update settings, go to Settings (Windows key + I)
    • Select Update & Security
    • In the Windows Update option, click Check for updates to see which updates are currently available
    • If updates are available, you will have the option to install them
    • Once the updates you choose are installed, you will want to restart your computer
  3. If your game is using DirectX 11, try switching to DirectX 10. If your performance does not improve or worsens, it's recommended that you switch back to the previous version of DirectX.
  4. Close any unnecessary background applications to identify conflicts and free up resources.
    • Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open Task Manager
    • Click More Details
    • Select the Startup tab
    • Right-click on each item and select Disable
    • Restart the computer
      • If this resolves the issue, enable the startup application one at a time to determine the culprit. You will want to restart between each application you enable. (Note: To re-enable startup applications, follow the previous steps and select Enable.)
  5. Make sure your system isn't overheating. Your heat levels can be monitored by downloading a free version of HWMonitor from CPUID. Once you've installed that, follow these steps:
    • Start HWMonitor
    • Run HWMonitor while you play the game until you experience the problem
    • Review the max temperatures reached in HWMonitor
    • If you need to provide us your heat information, please screenshot or type out the listed Max temperatures.

If you have tried these steps and still require assistance, please create a topic on this forum or contact us.
