Having some real problems with this game. Running around inside buildings is fine, but as soon as I go outside (especially driving around), my performance tanks, with fps dips down in the 45 region. My CPU (i9 9900k) jumps to 100% usage frequently, while my GPU (GTX 1080) sits at around 60%. Surely, I shouldn't be experiencing a bottleneck on an i9 9900k?!

Specs:
i9 9900k
16GB DDR4 RAM
Asus Strix gtx 1080 (overclocked)

These are the current settings I'm running (although I have knocked some down to low with no difference)...
Geometry - Very High
Environment - High
Texture Resolution - High
Texture Filtering - Ultra
Shadows - High
Headlight Shadows - Off
Reflections - Very High
DoF - Off
Motion Blur - Off
Bloom - On
Ambient Occlusion - On
AA - TAA
Subsurface Scattering - High
Ray Tracing - Off
DLSS - Off
Extra Details - 0%
Temporal Upscaling - 100%
Sharpening - 0

My framerates are all over the place. I generally get 60fps when inside a building, or 55-60fps when running around outside. As soon as I start driving though, my framerate takes some crazy dives, all the way down to 40ish fps. I just find it puzzling that it's causing 100% load on an i9 9900k on almost every setting combination.
EDIT: Yes, I'm playing in 1080p.
