Published: May 26, 2022 | Last Updated On: May 26, 2022

My Time At Sandrock is an Early Access game where you are taken to Sandrock Desert Community. Here you will take up the role of a Builder. You will get to use your trusted tools, farm resources, construct machines, and develop your own environment.

All of this comes at the price of your own resources namely CPU and GPU, along with Memory. My Time At Sandrock is surprisingly heavy when it comes to RPG. I will try to help you out by showing you the best graphics settings for the game.

My System Specs Used To Test

  • Processor – i7 8th Gen
  • Graphics Card – NVIDIA GTX 1650 4GB
  • Storage – 1TB SSD
  • RAM – 16GB DDR4
  • OS – 64-Bit Windows 10

Results and Tips for More FPS in My Time At Sandrock

With the above configuration and settings, here are my test results:

Average FPS 62-65
GPU Usage 99%

If you are running on the following systems:

  • GTX 1050Ti OC and I3 8100/i5 12th gen/i7 8th gen or 10th gen
  • GTX 1060 / GTX 1650 / GTX 1660 (Super or Normal) and Ryzen 5 3600 or other same versions

Then you have a similar spec like I used to test this game. Either keep it to what I did, or you can lower the Medium settings to Low and the Fullscreen to Windowed Mode. I will not recommend that you lower the resolution, but if nothing else is pushing the FPS, go for 1280 x 720.

Those settings should be sufficient to run the game at 60FPS. Even though the visuals may not be pleasing, you would be able to run the game without any issues. Do let me know if you have encountered any problems, and I will be glad to help you to the best of my knowledge.


That will be all for this guide on the best graphics settings for My Time At Sandrock. Given the fact how heavy the game is in its early access, I sincerely hope they can optimize it after the full release. Thanks for reading!
