If Matt says it is a legit thing, it is.

I just got lucky I guess. The way it works for me is if I set my max framerate to 240 and use these settings at 1080p Fullscreen I run, outside of the waiting area, 240 to 200 fps.

This is with a 6800 XT and a 3700X with 32GB of RAM. No Raytracing.

What hardware do you have?

What are the issues you are facing?

Are you using Freesync or Adaptive Sync?

I had issues for a bit with my RX 6800 XT.

Fortnite would jump from 240fps to 30fps and just spike like that the whole time I would play. It made the game less than fun to play. It turned out the game does not like Freesync and I had to change a couple other settings in Adrenaline and in Fortnite's graphical settings.

You can easily get most games to work if you tweak the right settings.

I legitimately want to help, my friend.

If you do want help I can try to troubleshoot with you.

Not OP but I have a 5950X and a 6950XT, I have tweaked every setting you can think of. While I can get the FPS high enough (should be higher) there are still very prominent stutters that plague the game and make it very unenjoyable. I made a post about it and was told by Matt to watch a much earlier thread from late last year. AMD has acknowledged the issue and even has it under the "known issues" in the driver release notes. I am hoping this gets taken care of soon. I only really play Fortnite because my wife is currently obsessed with it and we play together most nights as our way of bonding and relaxing. Lets just say this performance issue hasnt been relaxing. I am hoping we can get some more information out of them other than an acknowledgement .
