UPDATE 4.3.19 @ 21:48:
In case of performance issues first of all we recommend wiping AC2 and ACC folders in AppData/Local and Documents, respectively. Then we even recommend a full reinstall, especially with VR. Then, Mirrors Resolution is extremely heavy, I personally don't recommend going over MID (also try to turn them off). Temporal Upsampling and Volumetric Fog are to be disabled in VR, make sure you do that too.
