Settings and FPS? Hopefully my hyper-threaded i3 won't bottleneck my gpu too much.

The only thing you're bottlenecking is your experience on that resolution. Either way, high-ultra 60fps
won't be a problem for you.

I should be able to run this game max at 1080p right, yet i cant even play it on low at 1080p, im getting the exact fps on low, medium, high, and ultra with the same fps dips (it goes down to 8fps sometime). Any idea why? I have the latest Nvidia drivers.

Tweaked high perhaps. Not ultra though, mainly as that requires more than 3 GB of VRAM to run optimally.


Heck, I'm similarly specced and I still sometimes get areas that drop into the mid-low 40s/high 30s with tweaked high (with SSBC and temporal filtering)

ill try a tweak high.
Could it be because my cpu is between 95-100% usage while playing?

I'm going by sys requirements calc. I don't own this game. My guess is you can play it--just not at 60 fps on 1080p
