    1. I think your processor and gpu are hindering it. A 3rd gen intel with dual core is not supposed to run a game like Heat at very high fps. My frnd has ryzen 5 2600 with a 16gb ram and rtx 2060, and said that even he couldn’t run the game smoothly over 50-60fps. I have a ryzen 5 3600, and still i hardly get 65-70fps.

      1. You are wrong..I have a i5 760 which is a first gen intel overclocked to 3.8ghz and paired it with zotac 1660 super amp, im getting a solid 70 fps in medium quality and scaling resolution to 150% in game….but if the processer is at default speed 2.8 ghz the fps struggles…cpu bottleneck there…

    2. Turn the rendering resolution down to 1280×720 and turn on TAA. Keep depth of field off and lighting and shadows at low. Crank up whatever else you need, especially textures and geometry at high.

  1. To play this game on older hardware turn the rendering resolution down to 1280×720 and turn on TAA. TAA will recreate the edges and upscale the game at very low resource cost and the game will still look crisp even at low resolution! Keep depth of field off and lighting and shadows at low. Crank up whatever else you need, especially textures and geometry at high.
