What…? My HD 4000 runs it on low settings at 1366x768, low, DX11 on, hi-res textures on and with very playable frame rates… I can even manage 1280x720 and tweaked medium with just about playable frame rates…

The game up till patch 1.3 was horrible if you tried to run it on lower end rigs… I'm running it on the latest patch… As of Patch 1.8 and 1.9 (the last two patches), you should have more settings options and it should run a lot better…

I have physical copy (all my games are physical copy) and downloaded from Origin… Don't know about Steam version though… Even after updates, the settings options are High, Very High, Extreme, Ultra but you also have additional options like DX11 feature, hi-res textures, motion blur options and many more… The game's performance also improves…

Even after updates, the settings options are High, Very High, Extreme, Ultra (this is a gimmick) but you also have additional options like DX11 feature, hi-res textures, motion blur options and many more… The game's performance also improves… Here is how the correspond (settings):
High is actually low
Very High is medium
Extreme is High
Ultra is Ultra

Well that is weird… GTX 460 and HD 5850 can max this game on 1920x1080 easily with 40-50 fps average and R7 265 manages max with 60 fps average… If R9 280X manages less than 70 fps average, I'll eat my shoes…

You can't get pass it…? That isn't right… Did you download the latest update patches…? As of 1.8 and 1.9, that one should be fixed (though the sound errors still remain)…

What matters is the resolution itself and refresh rate and nothing else as far as the GPU is concerned…
