The PC version is incredibly well-optimized and runs great on a variety of hardware.

Zenless Zone Zero Best Graphics Settings (Optimized)

Even though there are plenty of settings to tweak in Zenless Zone Zero, most of these don’t have a huge impact on visuals or performance. Our approach with these best settings is to focus on the few options that do make a framerate difference but don’t bring down the visuals in any substantial way.

We tested the game on an RTX 3060 with 12 GB of VRAM, paired with a Ryzen 5 5600 and 16 GB of RAM at 1440p. By 2024’s standards, this is a budget PC. We recommend the following if you’re looking to get the best experience without sacrificing visuals.

With the settings above, we were able to boost the average framerate from 123 FPS to 154 FPS without any clear loss in visual quality. Check out the following screenshots to see a comparison between the highest available settings and our optimized settings.

As you can see, there is barely any visual difference despite an increase in performance by over 22%.

To demonstrate how little impact most settings have on the title’s visuals, here are a few examples of the highest and lowest values of Character Quality, and Mirror Reflections Quality.

From what we can tell, the only major visual difference comes when you adjust the quality of Shadows, even though there isn’t a major performance difference. Turning down shadows might net you 2-3 FPS more, which isn’t worth it at all.

Bloom, Distortion, and Color Filter Strength come down to personal performance and don’t have any impact on performance. Finally, we recommend using SMAA over TAA because it creates an overall cleaner final image. Yes, there is minor aliasing, which TAA can completely eliminate, but TAA produces a softer image, which isn’t always great at lower resolutions and can feel blurry.

Overall, if you’re looking to improve your framerate, then you need to target Mirror Reflections Quality, Volumetric Fog, and resolution. Apart from that, most settings don’t really do anything in terms of improving performance or visuals.
