    1. We have tested the game on both settings. Sometimes you may need to alt tab in and out of the game. If it is set to fullscreen, alt tabbing will put more pressure on the CPU. We found out that keeping it borderless FS did well for us.

    2. Quick tip: you can press ALT+ Enter to toggle between borderless and fullscreen. Use the one which works for you best! 🙂
