Turn Off Vsync
Turn off Vsync in game and in driver control panel. Also turn on Surface Format Optimization if you have an AMD card.
Change Windows Power Plan
Select High Performance or Ultimate Performance Power Plan in Windows Power Options
So far these are our improvements.
The performance improved by up to 25 FPS without losing much of the image quality. Turning down all of the settings will give you more performance improvements at the expense of losing image quality, which put you at a disadvantage in some scenarios.
