Question The forest running very weird!

Hey guys, so I bought "the forest" yesterday and always before I buy any game I check if I meet the "recommended system requirements" and for the forest I do, in fact my pc is 2-3 times more powerful then the "recommended requirements"
So i should be able to run the game on high settings right?
Well on high setting the game doesn't go above 45 fps, on medium I get some drops here and there. So I set some settings to off, low, medium and high. And still at some angles and at some situations the fps drops to 50. So has anyone else had any issues like this? And is there a fix?!
My specs are:
Intel core i5-8400 2.8mhz
Geforce GTX 1050 ti 4 GB
1080p 60hz monitor
8gb vram

In the game menu I think there is a line for locking the game at 60fps. Make sure that is not enabled. And in your Nvidia control panel 3d settings make sure you do not have vsync enabled that locks you game to your refresh rate.

I have vsync enabled in game because otherwise I get screen tearing and that's not fun. Also I have enabled "threaded optimisation" and "maximum pre rendered frames" to 1. It seem to have helped. But I'm still having the same issue!

Check if you are using the HD 630 graphics

http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-560-vs-GeForce-GTX-1050-Ti

Here is the comparisions according to the recommended specs of The Forest. If you really wanna use the gpu, you can disable the hd graphics by going to device manager and then finding display adapters. Disable the HD graphics and your system will be forced to use the gpu.
Ok will try tomorrow. But does it have any negative effects on my pc? And is there a way to set it only for specific games? But most importantly does this have any negative effects on my graphics card/pc?!

No, it will not have any negative effects. This just disables the cpu onboard graphics that may be switching so it makes your pc use the gpu.

I only have used AMD gpus, but it should allow you to switch specific graphics in Nvidia's control panel. Well, at least in AMD's case.

It does allow me to switch. But I don't think I had the hd graphics card there, I think I only had the 1050 ti.

I checked the website, but how is this supposed to help? It's just a comparison between an older and a newer graphics card.

That game is highly unoptimized and you won’t get the performance you’re looking for. Search this formum for the forest and see what I mean because obviously you didn’t even search before posting twice

Yeah I can see that the game has extremely poor optimisation. I guess I'll stick to these settings. Its not my fault the is optimised poorly.

Sorry I'm late, but have you solved the problem?
Well I have lowered the settings (you are always welcome to advise a solution) I have bought dying light and I discovered that the view distance eats up a decent amount of fps. So I will try to lower lower the view distance. And see how that helps!
