Arma 3 is a very sensitive game.
The servers kind of have their own FPS depending on how many bodies there are, how many players, scripts, mods and so on.
On singleplayer you should be able to run the game just fine though, that is your actual FPS.

You could probably run this at 30 - 50 fps medium at low-intensity gameplay. However, when things heat up, the game can get a bit unstable.
