Very low FPS despite very good pc conf


I have very low FPS (average of 10 in cities and 25 outside) depite having a quite good pc.
I tried to lower the settings, no changes.

Here is my config :
RTX 3080 (drivers up to date : 472.12)
i7-7700K CPU 4.2Ghz
32 Go RAM
Windows and the game installed on SSDs

Any idea ?
I can run other demanding games like Cyberpunk, AssassinCreed, etc… no problem

Thank you so much for your patience during this launch time.

I’ve been havinig the same issue with the same specs. Not sure if i7-7700k is finally showing its age or it’s an issue with the game, but II have friends with cpus with 6-8 cores getting better frames than me. Changing the settings from very high to low barely changes the the frames i get

Having the same issue but using RTX 3090 on i9-10900k

Check your GPU usage in an app like MSI afterburner.

I am noticing that the GPU usage suddenly drops to around 30-40% in certain areas and that is causing the massive frame rate drops.

Outdoors i am getting around 150FPS but when i go to a town etc it drops to around 30 FPS

@Standor There is a real problem with the GPU usage in New World, it really needs to be looked into

What about populated area like where people farm a boss for a quest? How does your FPS do there?

Perfectly fine in busy areas, it’s only really towns and a few other random areas

Here is a good example of what is happening to me, same as this often in towns.

Yea I’ve had that same issue as well, where looking at a certain angle in some random location tanks FPS. No clue why

Doesnt work for me((

I dont know what to do… Nvidia 1070ti

Did you ever find a fix?

did you ever find a fix?

Hi, sorry, forgot to update.
In my specific case, it was because of a broken watercooling pump, when my CPU reached 100°C, the security then automatically underclocked it (from 4.4Ghz to 1.3Ghz).
Changed the pump, and I’m all good now.

I am stunned your machine just didn’t restart or the CPU pop.
