Hogwarts Legacy Best Steam Deck Settings
Hogwarts Legacy received a significant boost in performance following the release of the May update, eliminating the need to switch between Proton versions and making it a smooth and enjoyable experience without the necessity for additional tweaking.
Balanced Settings (720p@30fps | ~2h30m)
The settings are optimized for a steady 30 frames per second (fps) experience, prioritizing consistent frame times over achieving a slightly higher 40 fps. To achieve this, start by reducing the in-game resolution to 1152x720, a key step that enables the utilization of the in-game FSR 2.2, providing notably improved visual quality compared to the 1.0 implementations. Additionally, most other settings are configured at medium levels to strike a balance between performance and visual fidelity.
