for your graphics card, CPU, and audio card. To improve performance,
use the options control panel to lower the graphics preset.

The Sims™ 4 is a real-time 3D game that requires
the majority of your computer's processing power. Other programs
operating in the background may slow it down or cause framerate
hitches. For best results, be sure to close any background
applications while playing The Sims™ 4.
