Performance or quality mode in Star Wars Jedi Survivor: Which is better?

 Do you want to know in which graphical mode Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is most stable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S? We tell you our own experience with consoles to recommend the best of the two.

Unfortunately, the launch of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been disastrous on a technical level. The game is suffering thousands of reports from the PC community, who claim that it is almost impossible to play the title despite meeting the system requirements, and EA has already apologized for this terrible optimization to promise that in the coming weeks, there will be patches that try to solve this chaos.

Meanwhile, the game on consoles works much better, although it still has problems with FPS drops ... As usual, on consoles, we have two graphic modes available to choose from. You may be wondering which is the more optimal of the two and which one you should play with to suffer fewer performance issues. If so, in this entry of our guide we are going to recommend the one that we think is the best of both (at least before the arrival of patches).

Performance mode or quality mode?

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has the following two graphical modes to choose from:

  • Performance Mode: The game runs at a capped resolution of 1440p and a frame rate of 60 fps.
  • Quality mode: This mode prioritizes resolution, offering native 4K, but limiting the frame rate per second to 30 fps.

Although many players will initially prefer the performance mode because it offers 60 fps, we have to say that at least at the launch of the game these 60 fps are not continuous or solid at all times (in addition, it is known that it also has cuts in textures, geometry, drawing distance or vegetation). Especially on the first planet, we pass through in the adventure, Coruscant, the game suffers from quite a few jerks and frame drops, especially in cinematics and moments in which there are many enemies and explosions on the screen...

We started our game on PS5 in performance mode, but a little later we tried switching to quality mode and, curiously, we noticed a certain improvement in terms of frame drops and greater stability in the frame rate per second.

In quality mode the resolution increases, obtaining a somewhat more beautiful and detailed visual finish. On the other hand, although the fps are limited to 30, the drops are not as common or noticeable as in the case of performance mode, so they are no longer a constant annoyance.

Performance mode or quality mode

It should also be said that when traveling to the second planet, Koboh , the game plays more stable (although we continued to suffer performance problems in areas with many enemies or places with bodies of water).

In any case, the final decision will have to be yours . We recommend that you try both graphics modes for a few sections and see which one you feel most comfortable with. Other than that, the only thing we can do is wait for EA to release updates that fix this mess.
