Insane FPS boost in Ryse Son Of Rome
To start. my setup is:
Palit Gamerock edition Nvidia GTX 1080
512gb m.2 nvme drive (have a 3tb standard HDD as well but that's irrelevant here)
At 1080p with max graphical settings, I get 40-60fps while playing with massive frame drops.
Now, this is where it gets strange... I was advised to open Origin (the EA competitor client), THEN open steam and launch Ryse. Thought I was being trolled but tried it.
INSTANT FPS BOOST. With frame limiter and vsync off, it was hitting ~130fps.
Currently running at 4k downsampled with an absolutely solid 60fps. Makes no sense but it works lol! If I launch the game without having Origin open, the issues return and I get a stuttery mess of a game.
