Hi all, I have been having a poor experience with Sunset Overdrive on PC, and I was wondering if it is an AMD issue. I have the following specs


Ryzen 5 1500x @ 3.7 GHz

16 DDR4 @ 2933 MHz

Powercolor Red Devil RX 590


Sunset Overdrive isn't a taxing game, and I get a fantastic framerate. But when I pan the camera around, I get severe frame rate drops. I have also tried it on an R9 390, and the same exact issue is present. I have tried installing the game to different drives, turning down settings, adjusting CPU Priority, and locking the frame rate. None have worked. I have also seen videos showing the same issue, and it seems exclusive to AMD. Is this a widespread issue? I really wanted to play the game but it's simply unplayable with this issue. Is it a driver issue? The port doesn't seem optimized, and I highly doubt Flying Blind Squirrel (Port devs) didn't test the game on AMD rigs.
