How to Fix Lag and Stuttering in FIFA 23

Is FIFA 23 lagging, stuttering, or having FPS drops?

FIFA 23 was released on 30 September 2022 for all platforms.

It’s available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox, and more.

On PC, you can download the game on EA, Origin, or Steam.

However, the PC version of the game has a ton of negative reviews.

This is because the game has many issues with the anti-cheat program.

In this guide, you’ll learn why is FIFA 23 lagging and how to fix speed-up lag, and stuttering in the game.

Why is FIFA 23 lagging?

FIFA 23 is lagging either because your graphics card is outdated or your display configuration is too high.

An outdated graphics card won’t be able to support the game while a high display configuration will decrease the game’s performance.

Many users are complaining that FIFA 23 is lagging and has FPS/frame drops.

“@EAHelp I am having serious lag issues in FIFA 23 division rivals. Before every game, I have 6 to 10 ping, but as soon as the game starts, it’s lagging. How can I fix it? There are never any problems with my internet or connection with other games”.

“I’m not trying to be overly negative and critical, but the FIFA 23 launch truly feels like the worst gameplay I’ve ever experienced. Horrendous servers, the passing is abysmal, and the speed-up lag is unbearable. Just both teams constantly losing the ball and then shooting”.

“Anyone else out there struggling with some bad speed-up lag the last few days on FIFA 23? It was fine Monday to Wednesday and then after the hurricane, I’ve been getting lag/speed-up in almost every game”.

How to fix lag and stuttering in FIFA 23

To fix the lag and stuttering in FIFA 23, you need to update your graphics card or lower the game’s display configuration.

You can also try deleting temporary files or playing in windowed mode.

Many players are complaining about the speed-up lag when they are playing the game on a PC.

If you’re using a PC, try using an Ethernet cable instead of Wi-Fi to fix the issue.

Otherwise, you need to wait for EA to implement a fix.
