Disabling FPS Locking/Capping Software

There are times when your Windows PC has running software in the background that locks the FPS inside the game to 60, or in some cases 30. Most of these software are Radeon Chill, RTSS (Rivatuner Statistics Server), Nvidia Control Panel FPS Limiter, Nvidia Experience, AMD Adrenaline, and so on.

You will have to close all of these programs and then play the game, as you will get 120 FPS in Honkai Star Rail.

Using the Nvidia Control Panel

  • Right-click on the Desktop
  • Click on the Nvidia Control Panel
  • Head to Manage 3D Settings
  • In custom programs, select Honkai Star Rail
  • Head down to Performance and select Maximum Performance
  • Find FPS and put 120 there

Save and close. This will increase the performance of HSR on your system and also help you unlock the FPS from 60, getting a maximum of 120 FPS. The same can be done with AMD Adrenaline, as the software itself has these options.

  • In “FPS:60”, replace 60 with 120, and save the binary value
