If you own a gaming PC with a powerful CPU and GPU, the Wallpaper Engine will have little to no effect on the system performance. But if you are using it on a low-end PC, it not only uses more resources than it usually does but also causes many performance-related problems. 

The type of wallpaper you use in Wallpaper Engine also impacts performance. If it is minimal, there is no performance issue. But if many actions are performed simultaneously to make the wallpaper more attractive, it will take more resources. 

Here are screenshots from our PC that shows the difference. [Note: The system is running an RTX 3070 and Intel’s i7-10700 CPU]

But if you are rocking full quality and frames with advanced wallpaper, you will see some dips in FPS. 

That concludes our guide on does Wallpaper Engine lowers FPS.
