    From what I can see the performance issues are related to data streaming. The hard dips go after a few seconds. This is something direct storage should fix, like I havent really seen major performance impact when the screen splits the 2 world's. It's the extreme DOF when loading in the next section. I honestly thought it would be worse than this but Observer was the same at release.

    I'm playing in 4k, DLSS medium, all setting max with LVP disabled ( caused some items to flash brightly )

    Enjoying the game. Played 6 hours yesterday all was fine. Playing Microsoft PC game pass,must have been an update because all I am getting now every 10 minutes .In game Graphic settings are changed with Microsoft PC game pass.

    EDIT:After changing resolution from 1920x1080 to 3840x2160 no more crashes, weird it is.Must have something to do with the patch.Anyhow Microsoft PC game pass caught up to the steam version now with the patch.

    Ok, gamepass version is running by default under DX12, not sure how to switch to DX11 but GOG version does run under DX11.
    Under DX11 fps drops are minimal or non-existent so I will stick with GOG version.
    Also VSR 4K does not work at all with gamepass, but it works on GOG version (could be DX12 issue tho).

    EDIT.: ok, it's about adding -dx12 under game .exe properties.
    Higher fps, but alot of more stuttering

    Ok game runs bad for me in the hotel. Like smooth 1 minute then crazy slow down the next, like someone keeps hitting that 0.5x button, just bizarre . Going to wait for a patch patch.

    I haven't seen slowdown like this in years. Takes me back to Saturn Doom or Quake on my old 486 DX266.

    Edit:
    Went back and messed about with settings and i got it in a playable state.

    Settings: In game options maxed except RT at normal, Unlimited FPS, V-sync off, 4k, DLSS High. Then cap the game to 30fps in the NVCP. Now I hardly see texture flicker and the hard drops (caused by RT on Ultra it seems). Game is definitely not optimized for 60fps and RT Ultra.

    Fingers x they solve these niggles and fix HDR.

    Overall i really like the game, great atmosphere, weird - Like Silent Hill and Evil Within except there is no combat in this. 30fps cap isn't so bad in this one due to the fixed camera...for me anyway.

    a little resi and silent hill, but massively more like broken sword. Very slow paced game with puzzle solving and heavy on the story. Barely any action so far for me.

    Interesting results (1080P max details - no RT)
    DX11 dual-screen - 48fps
    DXVK dual-screen - 48fps
    DX12 dual-screen - 72fps
    CPU load, mainly two cores are used on DX11/DXVK
    On DX12 it looks similar, but specifically one core is loaded nearly to max all the time.
    Once something is shown on the screen, one core goes to 100% and then heavy stuttering occurs.

    Runs even worse on AMD, 6900 XT, only as fast as the 3060 Ti.



    Oof! :D

    thing what baffles me about a lot of areas of the game, why does she go to all that effort to find an alternate way to open a glass windowed door or window all the time?

    Ray Tracing is just bad in this game,although I do like the reflections.
    GPU-RTX 3080 I need a better GPU for 1920x1080 gameplay

    RT On DLSS 18FPS

    RT Off DLSS 111FPS

    Na, the devs have messed something up in the implementation. I noticed my GPU and CPU are hardly being used when normally RT games heat up the GPU into the 70s. Hope they can fix it.

    during particular scene GPU usage goes to 100% while using only 80% of power. Confirmed. It's like RT algo goes to town...
    I saw the same behaviour in one or two particular viewpoints during CB2077 intro/starting mission. I thought it would carry on, but it didn't.
