So yeah I always seem to have terrible FPS. My FPS sits around 30 and drops down to around 20 all the time. No idea why.

Here is my current PC specs

It shows 100% GPU utilization, but I was recently using the R9 280 and I had the same issue. I don't know what the shit is going on but it's -----ed. Why is my FPS so low? My PC Scored 8453 on the 3DMark Software and a Steam VR test rated at 7.2. I feel like I should be getting much higher fps.

I am playing in Windowed Fullscreen.

According to thisI should be more than able to get a lot more performance. I'm playing on 19x12 resolution for on a 60hz 1080p monitor.

 

Things I have tried so far,

  • Unparking CPU cores.

  • Overclocking CPU to 4.4ghz from 4.2

  • Windowed Fullscreen, Windowed, and Fullscreen.

  • I've tried every Graphic Setting. (Low, Medium, Medium high, etc.) and every Texture Detail level setting, and turned on/off all the settings I could find.

  • I've tried playing in Cropped mode.

  • Rollback and Update Drivers.

  • Force "wait for Vertical Refresh" off in Catalyst Control.

  • Disabled Tessellation and Disabled Multisampling

  • Disabled Anti Aliasing

  • Set monitor Refresh rate to 60 (This doesn't ever get changed by the game, surprisingly)

Game also unplayable on my end. Got latest graphics card/driver and everything. Frames drop from 60 to 5 every 2 min.

Are you running fullscreen mode?  For some reason, the developers still have elected not to fix the issue with full screen forcing 24hz on monitors, so that is very likely your issue.  Change to fullscreen windowed mode and you should be able to run it just fine at 60fps or more (depending on monitor refresh rate).

Like luciferia Said earlier. Try to shut down Vertical sync manually in the Catalyst control center.
