Monster Hunter Rise on PC comes with several graphics settings and options for players to adjust. By spending some time with these settings, you may be able to pull even more frames and a better performance out of any dated hardware.
Monster Hunter Rise PC graphics settings & options
Monster Hunter Rise on PC has a handful of graphics settings and display options. Players that enjoy getting the most out of their systems would do well to spend a bit of time looking through these to see what can be tweaked. Keep in mind, Monster Hunter Rise isn't too demanding and most players should find that their PC can handle the game's visuals. While the majority of the settings can be changed while in-game, there are some options under the Advanced Graphics Settings that can only be adjusted from the title screen.
The Display Options menu offers a surface-level adjustment of details and setups. Here you will be able to select which display the game is being output to, the overall graphics settings, windowed or full-screen modes, resolution, display frequency, framerate caps, and ultra-wide settings. The “Advanced Graphics Settings” option is how you will access the finer details, which are listed below.

Advanced Graphics Settings
Each option in the Advanced Graphics Settings will alter the Graphics Memory Usage of Monster Hunter Rise. These settings can be adjusted to save on memory usage and CPU load, which should help users with older machines run the game a bit better. Each section will show how much CPU load it uses, which will help you decide whether or not to sacrifice something.

For the most part, all of the settings that directly impact the visual fidelity of the game can likely be left on. Even my own rig, which is now considered dated, is able to run Monster Hunter Rise with maximum settings and still has memory to spare. Things like the effects, motion blur, filters, and other settings will be personal preferences.
There is a whole heap of graphics settings and options in the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise.
