My specs are high but the game still runs very crappy

CPU: i7-4710HQ
RAM: 16 GB
CPU: GeForce GTX 970M

The game is installed in an SSD

It runs at 20 fps in the middle of the action, anywhere else it barely hits 40fps. Keep in mind this is all in the lowest settings at 1280x720 and pretty much completely optimized in the Nvidia control panel. What am I doing wrong?

Please include a DxDiag with any new tech support post. :slight_smile:
