How to do it
As the title says this is for Nvidia users, there are some serious issues present here that people are unaware of how to fix.

First you have to go in to the nvidia control panel go in to the configure surround and Physx tab and simply change the default setting from GPU to CPU. UE4 does not use GPU acceleration for PhysX. Per forum moderator unrealengine.com





Second... TURN TEXTURE STREAMING OFF, off is actually the highest setting. If you actually read the description High is limiting textures to 1gb off is unrestricted. Also set all shadows to low to gain 30+ fps. Also set super sampling to the the middle setting or off to get a big gain in FPS.

Another big help is manual fan control for your GPU. I use MSI afterburner beta to set manual fan speed control to 100%, Standard version does not work. It is also a good idea to run CPU and case fans at 100% and make sure your case airflow is set up properly.
AND MAGIC!!!! +60 FPS

I think the devs should look into why this fix is working so well for us NVIDIA users. I've never seen so many positive comments for one performance guide before lol

Merci beaucoup CNN, cela fonctionne vraiment. I used to have only +- 50fps. Now, it's around 60-120fps. Thanks again ! :lunar2019grinningpig:

I'm running a 3440x1440 monitor @ 60hz with a GTX 1070Ti and I7 4790K @ 4.6ghz.....I got almost a 60FPS increase and my mouse is now slicker'n deer guts on a door knob. CNN changed the whole game for me. Now it's enjoyable. :)

not sure if it really works cause i have cut the frames to 60fps for the moment
my monitor is quite old an doesen´t support moren then 1080p and 60 fps
next big thing i will buy is a 144Hz 4k monitor
hope that´ll match a MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z Card
