This game is ALL about the GPU. out of my 20+ games, this one made BY FAR the biggest difference with an upgraded GPU. Also the OC makes the biggest difference with this game too. I can play high 40+FPS :)

Yeah with that rig that sounds about right. If you wanna try tweaking it to make it so you can use uber maybe try lowering the res(also makes a big diff with this game). Makes the foliage and everything look so damn sharp but super taxing

It's very bad for lower-medium end GPU's and you really just need to know how to handle the settings correctly. I can play it high 40+FPS. You should be good ultra with ubersampling off :) Enjoy buddy!

Also if you find the game boring just give it a good 4 hours minimum and it really picks up! I made that mistake on my first run and stopped playing. 2nd time I'm loving it

High smooth FPS. Make sure Ubersampling is off. Might be able to get ultra 30+FPS with ubersampling off. You're low res really helps with this game.
