Changing the Upscale Type and Mode in the Display options for Hogwarts Legacy can make a massive improvement to fix stuttering and low frame rate. This setting provides a high-resolution frame rate with low-resolution input. The options for Upscale Type are listed below.

  • None
  • NVIDIA DLSS: For RTX GPUs
  • AMD FSR 2: For AMD Radeon 6000 series GPUs
  • Intel Xe55: For Intel integrated GPUs
  • AMD FSR 1.0: For older AMD Radeon GPUs or integrated AMD graphics
  • NVIDIA NIS: For NVIDIA GPUs without RTX

Set Framerate and switch on V-Sync

You can set a designated frame rate, and also switch on V-Sync to stabilize the stuttering in Hogwarts Legacy. Under Display Options in settings, select the V-Sync tab, and toggle it to ON. This will force your GPU to operate at a rate no higher than your monitor's refresh rate. Similarly, scroll down to Framerate, and select 60. You can choose a higher frame rate, but it's best to keep it at 60 to avoid any sort of stuttering.

Reduce Graphics and Population Quality to low

The last thing you can try in the game is to reduce the Global Quality Preset to low in the Graphics Options tab. Once that's done, every visual option will get set to low by default. You can also reduce the Population Quality to low to get a better frame rate without stuttering.

These are some of the solutions you can try to fix the low frame rate and stuttering issue in Hogwarts Legacy. Additionally, you can check for updates on graphics drivers and set the game's priority to high in windows to get the best visuals in Hogwarts Legacy.
