Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has serious optimization issues on PC

EA lifted the embargo on reviews of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and, apparently, the game currently has serious optimization issues on PC.

GameStar has shared a gameplay video of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor review. The test system will be based on an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor with 32 GB of RAM and a 24 GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 video card. Despite this, even in 1440p mode, the platform was unable to support 50 fps. The video clearly shows that the video card is only used at 35-60%.

During testing, an overlay with MSI Afterburner monitoring metrics was enabled. So it is safe to say that the CPU is not the limiter in this case. But, judging by the video series, it is frankly surprising that the game reserves up to 18 GB of video card memory. And that’s in 1440p mode.

Complaints about the optimization of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor are not isolated. PCMRace also report that the game has huge VRAM requirements. Due to very low performance, they were unable to get a 4K gaming experience, even though the system was equipped with a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB graphics card.

Tomorrow (28.04) Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is officially launched. EA already promises to prepare a patch directly at the time of launch, as well as actively work on further optimization of the game.
