Launch Skyrim Performance Monitor now. Then launch the game.
Follow the instructions below.
- You know the drill. Start a new game by opening the console and typing
- Unlike before, you are now very likely to encounter occasional frame drops (depending on your hardware). With tree and grass overhauls, overgrown regions might be especially taxing.
- There are no specific things to check out at this point other than general performance and whether or not you like the aesthetics.
- Some locations you might want to visit:
- the Guardian Stones at Lake Ilinalta
- the path from Helgen going north to Riverwood
- Falkreath forest
- Whiterun, right inside the city gates or looking down from the steps leading to Dragonsreach
