- Max Boost
Optimizes all settings to push the frame rate as high as possible. Recommended when you have an older computer or play on a gaming computer with budget components.
Adjusts the most important parameters for a balanced experience. You get sharper FPS at the expense of graphics quality. This is your first choice that you should try first.
Restores default settings just as if you had never used the EZ Optimizer before. You use this in case something does not work the way you want.
Disables “Async Compute” for Cyberpunk 2077. This helps to raise the FPS slightly with graphics cards that are older than the RTX series from Nvidia. Can be used together with Max Boost and BALANCED.
