Resident Evil 4 (2023) Remake on Steam Deck – optimized graphics settings

With a meticulous examination of the Resident Evil 4 Remake demo’s performance on the Steam Deck, I have been able to create two graphic settings presets. The first is optimized to achieve a frame rate of 40 FPS or more with significant reductions in graphics, while the second guarantees a stable 30 FPS with stunning visuals.

40 FPS Performance Preset

To achieve stable performance in graphics-intensive environments, significant reductions in graphics settings are necessary. Even at the lowest graphics settings, it is not possible to achieve a stable 40 FPS without AMD FSR 2.0 in performance mode. However, Resident Evil 4 Remake still looks impressive on these settings despite being a little bit blurry.

30 FPS Quality Preset

30 FPS – as in most current games – seems to be optimal on Steam Deck also in the case of Resident Evil 4 Remake. The visuals look great here, and input lag is relatively low. I don’t recommend using the game’s built-in frame limiter, as it causes big problems with the smoothness of gameplay. When set to 60Hz / 30FPS in SteamOS, the game plays great.
