I play the game on ultra/1080p with 100+ fps but sometimes it drops below 30. It doesn't happen often and when it does it doesn't last long so it's just a minor annoyance. I just wanted to know why that happens.

I ran it at 15-25 fps on low! Maybe because of outfdated video drivers? and windows 10?

Is it normal for me to get like 80 in some places and like 45-55 in really dense/populated areas... I know my computer could do better than that and it isnt performing as well... I'm even running it at 1680 x 1050 and still cant get 60 FPS

Its probably your CPU. its a good little fighter for its price but its not by any means powerful and may have trouble if it gets to many AI to handle

You can definitely play on max settings 60 fps. The options don't make much of a difference in this game for the most part unless you go from absolute best to absolute worst settings.

I feel like your GPU really limits you. I can run at least 50fps in most areas but only because I have my cell shading and anisotropic turned off. The cell shading is the most demanding part of this game and you need to edit game files to turn it off. I'd say even with cell shading off you're looking at 30fps tops.

Running the game @1440p 90Hz, I can only reach -80 FPS on the lowest settings. Is this OK, or is there a problem with my hardware?

Hi,
I think so yes. If you get 80fps on Lowest settings. Have you tried Low & Medium? at 1440p. What fps you get?

Strange. I reset the settings (except for FPS- default was Smoothed 22-62, set it to Unlimited) and I get far better FPS.
