2. Using the Right Graphics Card.

It has been reported that Apex Legends uses the built-in Intel graphics card instead of a dedicated one such as NVIDIA, AMD, EVGA, etc.

So depending on your graphics card, you will need to go to the graphics card’s control panel right on your PC and then select Apex Legends as your program.

If you have an NVIDIA, here’s how you do it:

  1. You can launch your PC by right-clicking anywhere on the screen, then selecting your NVIDIA Control Panel.
  2. Open the NVIDIA Control Panel, then select Manage 3D Settings from the left-hand sidebar.
  3. Go to the Manage 3D Settings tab and select Program Settings. Be sure to select Apex Legends as your program under Select a program to customize.
Help! I cannot find Apex Legends. What do I do?

Click on Add and try to find it from there if you cannot find it. In addition, make sure you run the game first and then shut it down completely before looking for it. If the game is running in the background, it might appear missing.

 

  1. Excellent. Next, make sure you choose the High-performance NVIDIA GPU under Select the preferred graphics processor for this program: processor. Once you’ve selected that, you can then click on Apply to apply the changes.
     

Done. 

You can similarly follow the above steps even if you’re using a different one the likes of AMD, EVGA, etc. 

This fix should patch up most of the low FPS issues you were having. If it doesn’t, there are a few more ways that you can still try and do.
