I have Inspiron 5502, maxed out RAM (32GB), Iris Xe GPU, 11th generation i7. I'm trying to get Hogwarts Legacy via Steam to run smooth. It's happened twice, one when it fist started, and once when I was doing stuff to Windows per internet suggestions. I got lightning to strick once and want to do it again but don't know how. I've done ALL internet suggestions but most of the time gameplay is very stop & go but functional.

1. The game is set at the lowest graphics quality & frame rate and the play is very stuttery/choppy. The only 2 times play has been very smooth was on day 1 and once when I was making changes in Windows based on internet suggestions. I got the game to run smooth twice and want to keep playing it smoothly.

2. I don't think I can take or upload a video of what the game play is like.

3. Windows 11 with the latest updates & drivers.

4. Two Samsung 16GB, DDR4, 3200MHz (32GB total). This is the maximum according to Intel.

5. Latest Driver for Iris Xe GPU from Intel.

6. I have two 8yr old games from Steam, they have no issues.

7. No errors from the game or Windows. Just very choppy character & environment movement.

Actually, I found the bottleneck. There was 1 or 2 programs that used a fair amount of memory. I had to use Task Manager --> Details to find them and end them. I also set Hogwarts Legacy as "realtime" priority and now the game runs smooth! I've shutdown & re ran HL twice since and still smooth play

Hello Deotech, 



Thanks for the confirmation. I am glad to know that the game is running smoothly now. I will close this thread, however, you can open a new one in case you need further support or if you face any issues with our products.


Remember to check with the game developer for the optimal settings for Hogwarts Legacy.
