I'll admit I only played about ten minutes of it but I never saw lower than 52 FPS on a Titan XM @1414mhz with a 5820k stock. And that was at 1440p. The only thing I lowered was motion blur, which I turned off because it makes me feel ill.
I haven't had the time to play it for longer yet.
Edit. Looking here however suggests that the 1070 has a minimum framerate of 46 FPS, which lends credence to what he has said. At 1440p it had a minimum frame rate of 38, which kind of lends credence to what I am saying.
I know GFE is pestering me to install a new driver but I'm not going to bother atm.
However, 46 FPS and 38 FPS as bare minimums are not indicative of bad performance IMO. If anything that just means they remain playable at all times.
I'm sure if you lowered the FSAA to medium then your FPS would shoot up also.. But yeah, I don't think bad performance is anywhere near the worst of this game's crimes. I think that's bugs.
Edit 2, also note from that article -
Also driving in a car eats away deeper in your framerate opposed to walking inside a building. We use a scene where we drive and where the FPS is best described as the worst case scenario. So overall your FPS will likely be a nice notch higher, but you will run into situations where the FPS is as low as we have shown in this article, that is a guarantee.
