It doesn't really matter on how i run the game, if i put every detail on low the game still lags and reach a max off 36 FPS however when i turn the details to high it will got to 40-43 FPS?

Ive done some research on the forum and everyone seems to be fine with these settings and get around 60FPS some even more:


Full screen 1920x1080 @50Hz

Fullscreen Mode: Borderless

Vertical Sync:On

HDR mode: Off

Motion Blur:Off

Depth of field:Off

Chromatic Aberration:off

Cam shake:0%

AA off
Ambient occlusion HBAO
Texture quality high
Veg quality high
Terrain quality high
Effects low
Lighting effects high 
Post processing high
Mesh quality high


I have turned v-sync of and managed to get 50FPS while standing near my suit however once i turn around it drops to around 26-28?

So i have opened my task manager and noticed Anthem is using 93% of my CPU and 97% of my GPU wich sounds rediculous!

So i went back to the beginning and turned everything to Low opened up task manager again and noticed it wont make my CPU or GPU % go down!

Ive aswell tried to setup the NVIDEA settings diffrent as some topics mentioned but nothing seems to work


As last i want to let you guys know, Anthem is the only game doing this! I Play Gta 5 (60FPS), FarCry 5 (60FPS), Ark Survival (60FPS), and some other heavy game's! i havent seen this % of my GPU and CPU in any other game aswell!


It feels like i've spended 60 euro for a game i can't even play wich sucks! Funniest thing is, it doesnt do this * on my PS4 PRO (tried the open beta back then) wich is around 400 Euros and my PC is around 1,5k lol?


Can anyone please help me or tell me what iam doing wrong?
