The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Performance and FPS Drop FIX (NVIDIA)

This guide will explain how to solve performance problems or FPS drop in a simple and fast mode on two step.

  • Go to My Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition and open "SkyrimPrefs" and on the "Display" search "iVSyncPresentInterval=1" and replace "1" with "0" and save. If missing the string "iVSyncPresentInterval" add it to the end of "Display". 

  • Now open "NVIDIA Control Panel" by clicking the right mouse on the desktop and on "Manage 3D Settings" go to "Program Settings", "Add" and find the Skyrim Special Edition installation folder ( usually is on C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition ), select SkyrimSe.exe and the list of the various settings select "Mode Power Management" put "Maximum Performance" and "Vertical Sync" "Fast". Once that is done to "Apply", close the panel and start the game.
