    Low FPS in game

    Hello,
    I can't seem to get FPS above 35, and for the most part I average 19fps. Any suggestions or help would be welcomed.

    My Computer:
    GTX 1080 Seahawk (Version 390.65)
    i7-6700k 4.0GHz
    16 GB Rams
    Windows 10

    all you did was to say you have a computer and you want more fps (yeah.... ok.... but...)

    be nice to show whats running in background and with windows 10, there WILL be crap running in background.

    anti-virus/ anit-malware/ windows defender and so on....
    nvidia 3rd party junk installed and running
    steam junk allowed (over lays, chats and such...)
    other types of game optimizers
    game video settings (screen shot of the video options screen) place image in imgur.com and provide link here
    mods installed (yes they make a difference too)

    if you want some help you got to tell what your life history is just like going to a doctor and sitting thru 10 pages of history of your life and your family.

    and be prepared for some strange suggestions!

    Almost every single post I've followed up on like this where a user has all the specs required for a decent framerate, and isn't getting one....
    Is because they are trying to play the game at 2k or 4k resolutions. Going back to 1080p resolves their issue.

    Also, don't forget to turn off Shadows and all Reflections. Neither of these features are optimized enough to be used right now.

    Interesting. I've always had my reflections settings set to high and never noticed any fps issues with it set that way. Shadows, I agree with though as I resorted to having it set to "near".

    Maybe I'll play around with it some more to see just how much it boosts my fps by disabling it and whether or not it's worth it.

    good advice there too. i might be wrong but i dont think our texture graphics is even scaled to allow resolution that high. i have all settings maxed with my set up at 2660 x 1440 .

    ok so Sylen I tested it and here is my findings. tested on navezgane sp map

    2660 x 1440 spawned and tp 0 0 faced sw and let fps settle because of tp all settings maxed gave me 39.41 FPS
    2660 x 1080 spawned and tp 0 0 faced sw and let fps settle (same as above reason) gave me 68.74 FPS
    using 2nd test settings i go into video to turn off reflections and shadows (everything else stays as i normally play) no changes to reflections and shadows affected my FPS.

    so for me... you suggesting to lower resolution has a great deal of benefits. nice catch. curious to see how Fox makes out.

    Ok, I did some tests... all on 1080p. Random Gen. And I of course re-loaded the world for each test and allowed the fps to settle.

    Reflections set to high next to large body of water with sun reflecting off of it: 105fps
    Reflections set to off next to large body of water in the same position: 115fps

    Reflections set to high inside a house looking at a reflective stove among other kitchen stuff: 56fps
    Reflections set to off inside the house in the same position: 60fps

    "Reflected shadows" setting didn't seem to make any difference with shadow distance set to near, maybe 1 or 2fps difference?

    Shadow distance set to Far next to large body of water (same position), with trees / foliage covering half the screen: 99fps
    Shadow distance set to off next to large body of water and trees / foliage: 107fps

    Shadow distance set to Far inside the house in the kitchen: 57fps
    Shadow distance set to off inside the house in the same position: 68fps
    Shadow distance set to Near inside the house in the same position: 60fps

    Conclusion, I think reflections don't impact performance enough to stand out from any other graphics settings. The only reason there was a 10fps difference with the water was because the the sun reflects a lot off of the water, so when it's disabled, the water just becomes a flat color. So of course reflections would have a pretty big impact on that. Also, the world looks kind of bad without reflections, so I think it's worth turning down other settings just to have it on.

    I wanted to do more tests, but the time of day seems to impact the fps results by over 20fps difference. So I did what I could within daytime.

    I mean Near shadows, ok, but Off? You gotta know where you can sneak.

    Sorry forgot to say I don't have any mods. Also I switch back to 388.71 drivers for my card since my other computer is getting 55fps average with that driver.

    Win 10, turn off the Nvidia ShadowPlay, and any of the x-box/ms gaming crap. That record overlay can kill FPS. 384 was a good driver set to troubleshoot with using, but be sure to use the clean install option.

    never had any issues with nvidia because i ONLY install the video drivers.. i uncheck all the other crap and i will not let steam modify things like they and microsoft feel is best for my experience. but essentially and people sometimes take it wrong, but all that improve your gaming experience BS, is just that.... BS and hogs down your resources.

    so for improved experience... hopefully enough has been covered here to help OP with his/her fps issue.

    i just noticed you have a little modification in your ui (that can help cut fps too), try cutting the brightness down a bit.

    here is my game video settings https://i.imgur.com/W1Vrl2x.jpg

    my system is only a ryzen 5 1400 (and i have been replacing low grade stuff with better as i go) it will be a ryzen 7 with 32 or 64gs of ram currently as an r5 with only single stick 16g ram its a bottlenecking my video card, but you can see from below i am upgrading.

    250g nvme for Os
    1tb SSD for all other installs
    1tb for videos (i save my tester videos that are submitted with my bug reports)
    16G ram
    gtx 1080 Amp Extreme
    ASUS crosshair VI motherboard

    You sure? Pretty sure I've read in game that light levels effect sneaking, and have reliably used that mechanic to avoid detection, whether in a darkened building or by avoiding light areas in a forest.

    did you use a gsync monitor? If yes, turn gsync in the driver off + restart your game. I had the same problem but just with win10.
