Far Cry 6 appears to run better on PC if you disable the Ubisoft Connect overlay, according to Reddit users.
User contrabardus shared that they noticed once the Ubisoft overlay was disabled, the performance of Far Cry 6 improved, even when using maxed-out graphics and ray tracing settings and without FidelityFX enabled.
The user has a beefy PC setup with an RTX 3080 Ti graphics card, AMD Ryzen 3950X processor and ’36GB’ of RAM, but they were only seeing around 60fps with dips as low as 48fps with the Ubisoft overlay enabled. However, when they disabled the overlay, they were getting around 70fps with no dips below 60fps.
