Hello
I was playing the recent Journey port for PC on Ultra Graphics and everything went fine until a really big open area on the game with several bridges, so i tried to fiddle with the settings and even on medium i experienced some huge fps spikes.

This is my Rig: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Luke2009/saved/47MXsY (Currently i only have 1 RAM module so it's 8 GB)

i tried to find the reason so i checked with MSI Afterburner after restarting and tried to replicate everything only running the game. I'm sharing the timeline , the FPS drop spikes coincide with a drop in CPU usage (marked with red). I'm attaching the game requirements to which i thought i shouldn't have issues.
FPS shown as 0 are when i was alt-tabbing.

Major changes I did recently were just setting my RAM to XMP profile in BIOS/UEFI . However i don' think that's the issue. What i did found odd was the huge pagefile usage shown in the second picture. I'm upgrading the RAM tomorrow but for other reasons.

I want to make sure what's going wrong in my rig. Thank you everyone for the help.
