Low fps on overwatch even with matching intel in-game settings

I'm having trouble getting decent fps on overwatch.  Even after going into the lowest settings, updating drivers, using the in-game settings intel suggests, and doing all I thought of, I am still struggling to achieve more than 60 fps on overwatch. I have a Intel UHD graphics 630 card and an Intel core i5-8400 processor and the game feels unplayable. I was hoping there is some solution to my problem as I have no idea whats left to do.

Hello lionkat2

 

We are checking this thread and we would like to know if you need further assistance.

 

It is worth mentioning that FPS will depend on different facts and not only on the graphics controller. For instance: if it is an online game, the Internet bandwidth, if the computer is wired or wireless, type and capabilities of the hard drive (SSD, HDD, M.2), amount of memory RAM, type of display and connection, OEM limitations*, etc; and then the graphics controller works based on available resources.

 

Following the recommended settings at gameplay.intel.com this should allow for a playable game; however, playable not necessarily mean reaching more than 60 FPS. Please check the recommended settings based on your processor model:

Since the game is available at gameplay.intel.com this means the validation team has tested the game. However, could you please provide the information below so we can try to replicate the behavior and check this further?

 

1- Display brand and model:

 

2- How are you connecting the display, please provide details about cable types and video ports used on both sides (computer and display).

 

3- Are you playing Overwatch Legendary Edition or Standard Edition?

 

4- What is the average FPS that you are able to achieve?

 

5- Have you checked the Overwatch Performance (FPS) Issues** (e.g. checking your latency) or contact their support team for debugging assistance from their side?

6- Could you please provide a video showing (a) the game settings and (b) the behavior while playing the game? Please also let us know if you have any other behavior, for instance, game lagging, crashes, etc.

 

7- Please provide a Report for Intel® Graphics Drivers following the steps on the below link:

Best regards,
