Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance Best Graphics Settings for PC

You don't need much to get 60 FPS!

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance isn’t a demanding title at all, and runs great on PC for the most part. There is some usual Unreal Engine shader compilation stutter, but it isn’t as bad and doesn’t happen frequently. If you’re looking to improve your framerate, here are the best Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance graphics settings.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance Best Graphics Settings

There aren’t many individual settings to adjust in Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance and the graphics settings screen is very basic. Surprisingly, you don’t need powerful hardware to attain 60 FPS or higher. We tested the game on an RTX 3060 with 12 GB of VRAM, paired with a Ryzen 5 5600 and 16 GB of RAM. By 2024’s standards, this is basically a budget PC. Even on this setup, my framerate was hovering around 180 – 230 FPS at 1080p.

  • Motion Blur: Disabling motion blur only has a 2% performance increase to average framerate, so it’s largely down to preference. I’ve left it off for greater overall clarity.
  • Resolution: Changing the resolution is the easiest way to gain performance. At 1440p with the settings above, I was averaging around 118 FPS. Turning it down to 1080p improved my FPS by almost 50%, bringing up the average to 193 FPS.
  • Anti-aliasing: This is essential, and turning anti-aliasing off only improves average FPS by 1.5%. However, the visual downgrade is quite evident. As you can see in the comparison screenshot below, the vehicles in the distance look quite aliased. The main character’s hair is also aliased and looks quite distracting in action.
  • Ambient occlusion: Outside of the resolution, Ambient occlusion impacts the framerate by a decent bit. Turning it off improves the average framerate by 12%, but different parts of the presentation lose depth. Here, in the screenshot, you can see that the debris lacks soft shadows, making it look flat.
  • If you want to limit the framerate, make sure you’re using your driver’s tool to do so. The in-game limiter isn’t reliable, and can potentially add stutters.
    • For NVIDIA users: Open NVIDIA Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > Select SMT 5 V (by clicking Add) > Set Max Frame Rate to desired value
  • While we would recommend using vertical sync through the driver again, it’s perfectly fine to use it in-game as well.

Overall, Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance should run perfectly fine at more than 60 FPS on most PCs from the last five or so years. If you have an older system, try lowering the resolution, or turning off ambient occlusion.
