Benchmark test FPS on ultra, without ray tracing:
Max: 145
Min: 63
Avg: 110
95%: 83
This seems to be better than just an average number for this game.

I have a core i7-6700k 16G RAM. Win10, game installed on SSD, I'd like to play it maxed. On my GTX1060 it's unplayable (20 fps). I changed for a RTX2060 and it's not as good as expected: 50 to 60 fps average, down to 30 in the jungle scene. It's very far from the figures I could find online. What can I do??

Cant get this to run properly on dx12.
Was crashing before, but after reinstalling nvidia drivers, I get low and inconsistent GPU usage.
Dx11 runs much better but just like Rise, it makes me CPU bound so I still drop below 40fps when "outside". Also cant run HDR on dx11.
I would like to blame my CPU but there's no reason for dx12 to run much much worse than dx11.
Any help wld be appreciated!

I have the card below yours (The 1050M) and I can't even run properly at 1080p on Medium. You might find your extra 2GB GPU Ram is enough for it to work on Medium but High? I doubt it.

In case it helps: My current settings for my system (1050M 2GB, i5 7300HQ 2.5GHz, 8GB RAM):


Resolution: 1280 x 1024
Graphics Qual: Medium


The In-Game benchmark tool gives me an average of 40fps


Not got that far yet still some lag.
