Cyberpunk 2077 mod FPS: One of the great advantages of playing on PC compared to doing it on consoles is the possibility of installing mods in games. These mods (of mods) are created by the community, and in addition to adding content to the game they often serve to optimize it in ways that the developers had not thought of. It is just what has happened with Cyberpunk 2077 , whose performance and quality is now more than ever in question, but now two new free mods are available and will help you improve the FPS while you play, being able to adjust its graphic quality in a much finer way. than the game itself allows.
Yesterday we already told you a “trick” that allows you to modify the amount of memory reserved for the game, and that serves to reduce CPU consumption and that it has a less impact on the performance of the game. One of the two mods that are now available does this in a more visual way and without you having to edit configuration files by hand, and the modder community always takes these things into account.
The mods that will improve your FPS playing Cyberpunk 2077
The first of the mods is called Config Overhaul , and according to the creator it allows modifying hidden settings in Cyberpunk 2077 to squeeze a little more FPS, especially if you have a mid-range graphics card.
According to the creator of this mod, one of the key settings that you should modify if you have performance problems in the game is “Async compute”, but only if your graphics is older than the GPUS NVIDIA RTX 20 Series and Radeon RX Vega. With this, and always according to the creator of the mod, up to 25 more FPS can be obtained in the game.
The second mod is called Cyberpunk 2077 Performance Patch RAM-Pool Optimizer , and as we have told you before what it does is edit the file that we taught you to modify yesterday to change the amount of RAM memory assigned to the game. For some reason, CD Projekt Red allocates only 1.5 GB of memory by default, forcing the processor to recalculate many more operations than it could have stored in memory.
This causes a certain bottleneck in the processor and obviously reduces performance in the game, so if you want to solve it with this mod, you won’t even have to edit the aforementioned configuration file yourself. By the way, the author of the mod says that he has optimized the mod for configurations with 16 GB of RAM and graphics cards with 8 GB of VRAM, but of course you can also manually modify it to adapt it to the hardware specifications that your PC has.
Is it dangerous to use mods for this game?
One of the benefits of these two mods is that they don’t touch any game files, just configuration files. This means that even if you update the game, you will not lose the settings that you have modified with these mods, so you will not have to worry about having to reapply them when a new patch is released for Cyberpunk 2077.
Also, since Cyberpunk 2077 is not an online game and these mods do not touch any files in the game, they do not pose any danger to its integrity. On the other hand, if you use the software offered by the web that hosts the mods, you can always install and uninstall them at will, one more addition to be able to be calm about it. In any case, the worst that can happen is that you have to reinstall the game, but since only configuration files are touched, we reiterate that it is very unlikely that you will have any problems.
