There’s one specific setting that absolutely tanks performance for me, namely Cascaded Shadows Resolution. Changing this from High to Medium more than doubled my FPS instantly. Not only that, but character dialogue went from single digit FPS to actually watchable.

Turn ON GSync/FreeSync

Enable G-SYNC, G-SYNC Compatible.

Turn V-Sync ON in the Nvidia Control Panel.

Turn V-Sync OFF in the in-game settings.

Enable Ultra Low Latency Mode

Image Clarity

Turn OFF these two: Film Grain and Chromatic Abberation.

Go to Nvidia Control Panel

Set Image Sharpening ON, Sharpen 0.50, Ignore film grain: 1.00


Turn OFF Steam Overlay.

No Steam Overlay Even It’s Enabled?

Do not run the game as Administrator
