Prior the latest BIOS 322 update, FIFA 23 suffered from major stuttering issues during cutscenes. That seems to be gone but the framerate issues are still bad because of a bad PC port. It could get annoying though because when you do a corner kick or there’s any type of replay, the frames drop. Gameplay is unaffected though.
Gameplay is smooth averaging above 65-70fps at 1080p on Turbo Mode at just under an hour of battery life.
Using the custom 18W mode for more battery will get you an average 55-58 fps with an hour and 30 minutes of battery life.

Creating Manual 18W TDP
Open up Armoury Crate, click Settings and then click Operating Mode.
Click Manual and then select a manual mode in the drop down menu to edit. Change all three settings under CPU to this.
Next you want to adjust the fan curves for Fan 1 and 2 to look like mine or to your preference.
You can save your settings by clicking the check mark and rename your settings by clicking the 3 dots next to the checkmark.
Applying 18w mode to the Game
Go to Game Library in Armoury Crate, highlight the game you want to edit and press X on your controller. Click Configuration, then click Operating Mode DC and select the custom operating mode you just created.
The custom mode will be automatically applied the next time you launch the game.
If you can ignore framerate issues during cutscenes, replays and corner kicks, FIFA 23 gameplay is a playable experience.
