Results, Tips and Conclusion

We Highly recommend that you use DirectX 12 version rather than 11. That is becuase using DirecX 11 will use the most of your CPU. Once that happens, it can cause lags and stutters in the game. The game has done a great job in helping players adjust the settings and get a preview of the CPU and GPU loads, VRAM usage and explanations for each settings. You can simply fine tune the settings as per your preference, after you are done with ours.

You can get FPS Boost by turning down shadows and Temporal upscaling even further. Our aim was to get a steady 30 FPS which we did with ease. Since this is a visual spectacle, we decided to not dial down the settings too much. But, you can always do that for more performance increase.
