Sifu – Best Graphics Settings Guide for PC

Sloclap, the studio behind Absolver, has come up with a new game called Sifu. This third-person action game features intense hand-to-hand combat and puts you in control of a young kung-fu student on a path of revenge.

Talking of combat, smoother frame rates, would mean that a game like Sifu, which is basically heavy fight-based, can run nicely. This post will help you set the best graphics settings for Sifu so that you can play it seamlessly and not worry about FPS and performance drops.

NOTE: Post updated with GTX 1050Ti and i3 6098p Benchmarks!

Sifu – Best Graphics Settings Guide for PC

Here are the best and most balanced graphics settings I found for Sifu. I also tested it out so if you want to check that out, here is the video. I also tested the game on a GTX 1050Ti and i3 6098p. Here is the video for that as well. Read on for the written guide…

Best Display Settings

These are the best display settings I could configure for my system to run Sifu:

  • Resolution – 1920×1080 (Always keep this native unless you are running on an old gen CPU like i3 6th gen and gtx 750ti)
  • Vsync – Off (If you are facing too many framerate jumps, keep this locked for stable performance)
  • Render Resolution – Max (Set this to the max to see a smooth result on screen. Lowering this may cause declined graphics experience)
  • Display Mode – Fullscreen (quite self-explanatory due to how optimized and small the game size is)

Best Video/Graphics Settings

These will be the main video or graphics settings for Sifu. The options are limited in my opinion but they are enough to configure your system to the best performance and FPS:

  • High Contrast Display – No (This is optional and you can turn this ON for a rich contrast experience)
  • Shadows – Medium (Even though the game is light, shadows can still take up decent resources, hence I kept this Medium)
  • Textures – High (Textures for such games should be High unless you want more frames. Still keep this to a minimum of high for the best visual experience)
  • View Distance – High (Keep this high as well since this is a heavy combat-based game. Even viewpoint will matter)
  • Effects -High (Keep this high since there are medium levels of effects here and there. You won’t be facing much issues here)
  • Post Process – Medium (Keep this medium to start within Sifu and ramp it up as per your liking and FPS)
  • Foliage – Low (This is optional and you can turn this up as well. Does not take up many resources)
  • Anti-Aliasing – Medium or High (This depends on the system you are running. High will not hurt at all, but I kept entry-level systems in mind.)

System Requirements for Sifu on PC

You should also check the system specs for Sifu if you have an entry-level system. Otherwise, it will run on most of the pc specs out there as far as I can think:

Minimum

  • CPU: AMD FX-4350 or Intel Core i5-3470 or equivalent
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • OS: Windows 8.1 or later
  • VIDEO CARD: Radeon R7 250 or GeForce GT 640 or equivalent
  • PIXEL SHADER: 5.0
  • VERTEX SHADER: 5.0
  • FREE DISK SPACE: 22 GB
  • DEDICATED VIDEO RAM: 1024 MB

Recommended

  • CPU: AMD FX-9590 or Intel Core i7-6700K or equivalent
  • RAM: 10 GB
  • OS: Windows 10
  • VIDEO CARD: GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 390X or equivalent
  • PIXEL SHADER: 5.1
  • VERTEX SHADER: 5.1
  • FREE DISK SPACE: 22 GB
  • DEDICATED VIDEO RAM: 4096 MB

My System Settings Used To Test

Here are the hardware and software Settings I used to test Sifu and benchmark it for most parts:

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • RAM: 32 GB DDR4
  • OS: Windows 10 64 Bit
  • VIDEO CARD: GeForce GTX 1660 6GB
  • PIXEL SHADER: 5.1
  • VERTEX SHADER: 5.1
  • DISK: M.2 SSD 500 GB
  • DEDICATED VIDEO RAM: 6GB

Results and Tips

I managed to average the FPS at 130-133. In very intense scenarios and rainy weather, the Framerate dropped from 130 to 111. Other than that, you can expect a smooth gaming experience with the above settings. if you are running the following systems, say:

  • I3 8100 + GTX 1050TI/750TI/ RX 570
  • 6th Gen Processor + 750/1050ti/1060

I would highly recommend dialing down the shadows to low and the visual high settings to medium. You can keep the textures high as it would not hurt the performance that much. If you can keep these points in mind, you can enjoy Sifu, even in the most basic system settings.
