Detailed description: No matter what I do the FPS won't go above 35, dropping as low as 5 fps, menu basically unclickable on anything, absolutely unplayable, have played previously before upgrading my Motherboard, CPU and Ram without issues, and the upgrades are better than what I was using

Reproduction Steps:
Start the game

Details of any solutions that have already been attempted:
Tried assigning all cores to the process
Updating/Reinstalling GPU Drivers
Reinstalling the game
Different resolutions/graphical settings

    Hi I've also been experiencing these issues since upgrading to an i5-12600k and I've been able to completely solve the stuttering by going into my BIOS and manually disabling all E-cores. I tried to use 'Legacy Game Compatibility' mode in the BIOS first but that didn't solve anything so I don't think that option is working as intended.

    Agreed. Recently upgraded to an i7-12700k and the menu and game's frames have absolutely grinded to basically a halt. Seems ridiculous to have to switch the BIOS settings for resolution if it works as Spielen1 says.

    I also changed my processor for an I7-12700K and since then I have very low FPS when starting the game and huge lag even in the menu it became unplayable, an update to fix this problem would be a good thing without which I can put this game in the closet...
