1.This problem happened from the onset specailly in cutscenes where it would drop to 6 to 10 FPS.

2.Medium preset runs ok but still stutters a lot.

3.I am running the game at 1080P

Thank you for sharing this with us. We'd like to ask follow-up questions to dive deeper into the issue you're facing as there seem to be no obvious errors or misconfiguration seen after we have checked the log file. 

  • Can you show us a screenshot of your game settings?
  • Have you taken any troubleshooting steps in an attempt to fix the issue?
  • Have you tried clean installing your system drivers? 
  • Are there other games that are having the same issue or just the Horizon Forbidden West?
  • Are there any noticeable GPU/CPU utilization issues during gameplay? You can check this on Task Manager.
  • Are there game-setting modifications you have tried that we need to take note of?

I did not take any troubleshooting steps; I do not know which troubleshooting steps to take.

I used clean driver install in the graphics driver installer.

Horizon forbidden west is the only game where I am facing this frame drops.

This game uses 100% of my CPU and 99% of my GPU,

I only used HIGH and Very High presets in the game but Very High presets is unplayable

Hello Rajrahman,


Thank you for pointing this out. The missing driver may have been removed from the download center when the new version 31.0.101.5534 was pushed back on May 28. May we ask if you have tested this driver version?
