These are the current PC Requirements from Bioware and EA that say that you can play the game with. This has to be *.
And of course I have the hard drive space and DirectX 12.
This game is absolutely * unplayable. I can barely move 10 feet without the game freezing for a few seconds before I can move again. I tried to play a mission, the enemies spawning caused so much lag that I died before I even knew that enemies had spawned because it froze my game. Either the PC Requirements for the game are fake and *, or the optimization for this game is just as *.

My rig specs
Win 10 Pro
I5 4670 @ 4.2Ghz Water cooled
Anthem running off an SSD
Nvidia RTX 2060 6gb
I use Riva Tuner to cap my FPS at 59...I can get alot more....but that's only bragging rights...game running smooth on Ultra is ALL that matters...peeps seem to forget as well....higher FPS means Higher temps to deal with.
Runs like butter.....no performance issues at all.
Sons rig specs
**Win 7 Pro 64bit**
I5 3470 @ 3.6Ghz
Anthem running off an SSD
Nvidia GTX 970 4gb
He gets upper 50 FPS on High....this did not happen until I swapped out his 3.6 Ghz dual core that ran 2 virtual cores to a True 4 core processor @ 3.6Ghz....prior to this...he was getting high 20's on medium...and slideshows at times.
We played for 5 hrs yesterday side by side with no issues.
I have a 60mb download speed with 10mb upload.
If your internet has low/slow upload speeds...your rig cannot communicate as fast as it needs to, to the servers your playing on...therefore the game lags and cannot respond in time.
If your on Win 10 64 bit.....windows itself is utilizing 4 of those 8gigs.....do you really think a game with maps as large as Anthem can run comfortably on 4gigs?
No way....No how.
You may not need Win 10 64bit....but this game needs a true quad core and 16gbs of memory and a decent upload speed from your ISP.
Hope it helps.
And I am No Newbie....been working on PC's for 20yrs.
Edit: Just to add....your specs must be wrong...GTX 960 only has 2gb/4gb onboard memory....not 6gb.
trying to have a minimum spec pc run a game like this should come with an expectation manager -
have you set up nvidia global settings ? i run these global and run anthem on medium - gtx 970 craps out on high settings but runs great at medium - 16 gigs of ram - 8 gig could be your issue
