Make sure you meet the minimum system requirement for the game

System Requirements for Days Gone (PC)

MINIMUM

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bits
  • Processor: Intel Core [email protected] or AMD FX [email protected]
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 (3 GB) or AMD Radeon R9 290 (4 GB)
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 70 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Though not required, SSD for storage and 16 GB of memory is recommended

RECOMMENDED

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bits
  • Processor: Intel Core [email protected] or Ryzen 5 [email protected]
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 (6 GB) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (8 GB)
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 70 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: Though not required, SSD for storage is recommended

My System Specifications Used To Test

  • Processor: Ryzen 5 3600
  • Graphics Card: GTX 750TI
  • Memory: 32GB DDR4 (3000MHz)
  • Storage: 500GB M.2 SSD
  • Operating System: Windows 10 64-Bit

The Goal was to Test for 30FPS at 1080p. Since the card is an old entry-level, I tried keeping the requirement as such. If you have a powerful GPU, your goal should be 1080p with 60FPS.


Detailed Results and Conclusion

GPU Usage ~98% (1310MHz)
VRAM Usage ~1400MB (3000MHz)
Average CPU Usage 32% (~4000MHz)
RAM Usage 9250MB
Average Frame Rate 36 – 40 FPS

I was getting an average of 36-40 FPS (OR 38 to be precise). The settings are fine by themselves but these are the optimum ones I could find. I tested this on a 750TI. This could also be a 1050TI or 1650. The results should vary within 10-12 FPS all the way up to 1660. If you feel the need to churn out more Frames, dial down the High settings to Medium, and the Medium ones to low. I am talking specifically, about lower-end CPU. An example of this would be an I3 8th gen or 7th gen processor.
