A new Fortnite update 2.97 (1.000.007) is now rolling out on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and PC. According to the official Fortnite 2.97 patch notes, the latest update added general stability enhancements and fixes. Apart from this, Fortnite patch 2.97 (1.000.007) also includes performance improvements.
Unfortunately, some players are still facing issues with the game online. Today’s Fortnite version 2.97 will fix a few of these problems.
launching a new performance mode on all PCs that meet Fortnite’s minimum specifications. Available in Alpha, Performance Mode will be selectable through the in-game settings menu and offers significant performance gains by trading out visual quality to lower memory usage and lighten the load on CPU and GPU.
For players already on low scalability settings or less powerful hardware, this mode will allow the game to run better than ever before and maintain a smoother framerate.
While Performance Mode will offer improvements for all users that opt-in, there are certain hardware requirements that can offer a significantly smoother experience. For users on older machines, having the game run from an SSD or providing 6GB of RAM or higher will allow the game to better fit in memory and reduce overall hitches and stutters. A dedicated GPU is not required but will also help balance system load and give a much smoother experience.
