why? Its playable on pretty much any i5 ever made. You dont even really need a locked 60 fps for it to feel smooth, i mean ps4 owners arent even complaining bout dips well under 30 fps... My advice is to turn fraps of and just play the game and enjoy it, like millions of sane people are. Its been shown that the game is gpu bound, and even the xbox one x which is a bit better than a 1060 only gets around 40 fps, but you know what the game feels fine at that sort of frame rate. They are using an implementation of vsync hat doesn't cause drastic jumps in frame rate and keeps the frame times reasonable even at non locked fps. The game was built around having an unlocked and variable framerate.
