Is it normal that in 1080p on the lowest settings possible my fps is around 35-60?

I think they're normal, the game is pretty demanding for its age (and a bit unoptimized). :)

What settings should I use?


My Nvidia Geforce Experience optimises most of my games for me, but it's giving me low/medium settings for Witcher 2. I was hoping for a second opinion here.
