Consider turning off Screen Space Reflections
Shown to improve game by ~7 FPS
Does decrease surface reflections. You may prefer to keep on, so change at your own discretion.

Turn OFF Motion Blur
Shown to improve game by ~5 FPS while in combat

Set DLSS to Performance / Ultra Performance if you don't mind the blurriness.

For AMD or NVIDIA GPU that doesn't support DLSS
It’s been recommended Nvidia owners only use this if unable to use DLSS
Turn ON Dynamic FidelityFX CAS
Set FidelityFX Minimum Resolution to 90 and maximum to 100.
It causes image artifacting if you set it below 90
Image Clarity
Turn OFF these two: Film Grain and Chromatic Abberation.

Go to Nvidia Control Panel
Set Image Sharpening ON, Sharpen 0.50, Ignore film grain: 1.00
*Do not use this tweak if your not using DLSS or FidelityFX CAS* or set the Sharpen to a lower value like 0.10

Open Radeon Software (Alt+R)
Select Gaming tab then choose Cyberpunk 2077
Enable Radeon Image Sharpening
Set the Sharpness to 80%
Fix for the game feels choppy/laggy for 1XXX series card or lower
Simple solution to the problem: download Cyber Engine Mod, just disable Asynchronous Compute.

Alternate Character Lighting
This mod removes some of the fake lighting in the game.
The changes are pretty subtle and only really tested with all RTX setting turned on, so your mileage may vary.
List of changes made in the .ini
- Decreases the artificial rim lighting from characters clothes and skin.
- Increases subsurface scattering specularity
- Lowers roughness of hair to increase shine
Here are some comparison shots
Installation: Extract AltCharLighting.ini to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cyberpunk 2077\engine\config\platform\pc"

A vehicle handling mod.
Stop driving on ice. Stop crashing like jelly.
The games car handling sucks, as I'm sure you're aware.
Crashes now happen. Hard.
Motorcycles don't bounce into the air as much.
No. This mod doesn't make your car/bike faster.
Installation: Extract DILYSI.ini to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cyberpunk 2077\engine\config\platform\pc"

WhatAreWii, same things, - playing without steam achievements with .exe file running as administrator and without steam overlay: +10-20 fps is much better :steamhappy:
WhatAreWii Dec 31, 2020 @ 1:14am

Updated. Added Custom UI Colors Mod, No Intro Videos Mod & Removed some outdated guides

I should say that this guide did help in the beginning before Gamers Nexus's guide.
Bravo1c Dec 27, 2020 @ 1:20pm 
Try this guide now, its the most comprehensive guide out there. Plus some of this guide is now redundant and some are not needed as no performance can be gained from settings like TAA or power modes. Corrupted save should be removed as this was patched in 1.06.
