Developed by Striking Distance Studios and published by Krafton Inc., The Callisto Protocol is the newest entry in the popular action horror genre. Alongside the success of official reveal videos and trailers, the title's visuals and combat mechanics made it one of the most anticipated games of this year.

Nvidia RTX 3090 is one of Nvidia's most powerful graphics cards which was introduced during the 30 series lineup. This particular card can easily handle most AAA titles at 4k resolution, and also comes with powerful ray tracing to enhance the gameplay experience.

This article will list out the best settings to enjoy The Callisto Protocol on your RTX 3090 GPU.

  • VSync: Off
  • Framerate Limit: Unlimited
  • DirectX: 12


  • Fullscreen Mode: Fullscreen
  • Resolution: 3840 x 2160
  • Render Percentage: 100

These settings will provide players with a superb visual and realistic gaming experience while assuring smooth gameplay. Before making these changes, users should update their graphics driver to the latest version using the GeForce Experience software or by visiting Nvidia's official website, which will optimize the game's performance and fix other issues.

Players interested in the best graphics can enable ray tracing to further improve their experience, but will need to reduce their display resolution to 2560 x 1440 for reasonable framerates.
