    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.
