Tips for getting for best performance
Avoid using Alt-Tab when playing. Relaunch the game if you see performance dropping after using Alt-Tab.
Avoid having background applications running in addition to the game.
If you have performance issues, try lowering the resolution.
Use 1440p resolution only if you have a very high-end GPU ( GTX 1070/1080 or equivalent)
Keep the V-Sync activated, especially if you have large framerate fluctuations.
If you have framerate under 30 fps, adjust the “Adaptive Resolution” between minimum (50%) and default value (75%).
Use the “Auto” presets: this should adjust your visual settings without impacting your framerate.
If you still have performance issues with “Auto” presets:
Try deactivating the “TXAA Anti-Aliasing”
Try lowering the texture details
If you experience performance issues, you can contact Bethesda Customer Support at http://help.bethesda.net/ with your DxDiag file for further troubleshooting.
