    I'm running it on max settings, is there any setting I can turn down without having too much of a visual effect that will increase the FPS?

    Also is there any better recording software than Nvidia Shadowplay as it is so glitchy, it keeps crashing.

    You may lower mirror detail, crowd and hair.

    Download NvidiaInspector, open nvidiaProfileInspector.exe and choose F1 2016 from the drop-down menu.

    Under 2 - Sync and Refresh, Change Vertical Sync to Force on
    & Vertical Sync Tear Control to Adaptive.

    Apply changes.

    This should prevent the FPS from dropping excessively during cut-scenes / flashback. Make sure you have the latest Nvidia drivers installed before doing this.

    Hope it helps!

    Shadows tend to hit frame rates a bit in most games, and anti-aliasing can be a big killer too.

    Tweaking a bit and then benchmarking is the way to go I think.
