This needs context. Specs? FC5 runs beautifully (and is STILL beautiful to this day) running on mid-high to high end hardware around 4k at 60fps. Very few stutters.
I have a 3770K and GTX 1080. I set it to 60hz refresh rate with optimised settings and even at 1080p couldn't keep 60 locked. I know AC is super heavy on the CPU but I didn't think FC was like that and even then I thought it'd reach 60 fps at the very least, maybe I'm dreaming. Its runs at locked 30hz native 4K with near max settings and only stutter there was autosave/loading very very ocasionally, nothing like the stutters I saw when trying to run at 60hz. This was with external fps caps, there was a constant microstutter without doing that on top of other stutters.
If I look at benchmarks of GTX 1080 (with overkill CPU usually) running it then its like 45-50 when travelling around generally and down to 30-35 during action (which are the moments I'm targetting to be locked really). Turning down settings does boost that up ofc but I could never hit 60fps locked even at 1080p and medium settings.
Would you not consider a GTX 1080 mid-high HW?
