Best Settings for Everyone if You Dont Want Ray Tracing

We have just been Cyberpunked. I am using an RTX 3070 and Ryzen 7 3700x with 32Gigs 3200Mhz ram gets about barely 60fps on Ultra + with dlss set to quality and RTX Off on DX12.

On the other hand with DX11 and make sure Anti Aliasing is set to TAAU and on Ultra + there is no visual difference from DX12 and the FPS is 100+.

They just added DX12 for Nvidias gimmick called RTX and DLSS, My GPU barely uses 40% on DX12 and CPU aswell.

We cant complain only because this upgrade was free. But Nvidia is ruining the game industry with DLSS for which the developers are becoming lazy and not optimizing their games properly. My personal opinion play it on DX11.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
