The new Remake of Dead Space has brought a fresh new coat of paint to the 2008 classic, infusing the intergalactic corridors of the USG Ishimura with industrial detail, sinister shadow effects, and unsettling lighting. Because of that, you would also need a much beefier machine to run it.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the best Dead Space Remake Graphics settings for High FPS.

If you want to jump into the game without having to tinker with the menu, it is best to compare your specs with the Minimum and Recommended System Requirements here.

  • If your rig is Minimum, set the options to Low.
  • Between Minimum and Recommended: set the option to Medium.
  • Recommended: set the option to High.
  • Above recommended: set the option to Ultra.

However, to ensures the best performance, it is best to stay with Medium and High even if you reach Recommended and Above Recommended. By switching from Medium to Low, you would be able to boost your FPS by around 10%.

The best graphics settings for Dead Space Remake

  • Full Screen Mode: Full screen
  • Full Screen Resolution: as per the native resolution of your display screen and preference
  • Refresh Rate: as per the native refresh rate of your display and preference
  • Vertical Sync: Off on a VRR/G-Sync supported display, On otherwise
  • Dynamic Resolution Scale: Off
  • Anti Aliasing: Nvidia DLSS on Nvidia GPUs that support it, otherwise FSR
  • DLSS/FSR Mode: Balanced (or Quality if performance headroom is available)
  • Graphics Quality: Custom
  • Light Quality: Medium (or High if performance headroom is available)
  • Shadow Quality: Medium (or High if performance headroom is available)
  • Reflection Quality: High
  • Volumetric Resolution: Medium (or High if performance headroom is available)
  • Ambient Occlusion: SSAO (or RTAO if RTX GPU with performance headroom)
  • Depth of Field Quality: High


Dead Space Remake's horror scenarios make use of shadows a lot, and dialing them down would definitely free up some frames. Even the low setting is a hell of an improvement over the original 2008 PC version.


Similar to Shadows, the remake uses light sources to drench the mining ship with atmospheric dread. Players should leave it at least at Medium for get some benefits while keeping framerate high.

Volumetric resolution

There's a lot of steam effects in Dead Space, which means Volumetric resolution is an important option. Keeping it at medium might improve performance in certain areas.

Ambient Occlusion

Ambient Occlusion is probably the costliest settings in Dead Space Remake - it can greatly drag down performance, especially if you are using an older GPU. Overall, going for SSAO is probably the safest option, allowing high-end visual results without paying fancy rendering performance tax.

Is Dead Space Remake a good game?

The Dead Space Remake is truly one of the best remakes out there, heavily improving on the original game in many different ways rather than just being a simple graphical overhaul. This remake adds extra side missions, stunning visual enhancements, and impressive sound design, providing a true current-gen experience while the core gameplay stays true to the original game. It's a mix of nostalgia and freshness that targets both OG fans and new players. The game provides a jaw-dropping cinematic experience that will keep you on the edge of your seat until it ends.

Gameplay wise, the entire game was basically rebuilt from scratch, and almost all of the rougher elements of the original have been vastly improved, such as the Zero-G sections utilising Dead Space 2's system, or the numerous new side quests or bits of dialogue that tie-in all of the lore that came after the original's release.

I have to say one of my favorite changes with this remake is the fact that instead of being a chapter-based setup locked behind the tram, this version of the Ishimura is completely open and you can take the tram anywhere and anytime you want. With the new security clearance system this strongly encourages backtracking when you unlock access to new areas. I was also very happy to see that the game clearly indicates the "point of no return" where you might want to wrap up any side quests before finishing the main story.

This is definitely the definitive way to play Dead Space, and it is 100% worth playing even if you've played the original, as there's so much more to explore and discover, while at the same time looking absolutely stunning.
