If your system has a NVIDIA graphics card, make sure that the slider in image settings is set to ‘Performance’. In the 3D Settings tab, choose Program settings and then select New World as your program. Then set CUDA-GPUs to All, Shader Cache to On, and Threaded optimization to On as well. Other than that, turn the other settings Off. These settings will help you gain FPS performance in-game.
Also, make sure to download the latest update of NVIDIA GeForce Experience drivers to get the latest optimizations for New World.

If your system has an AMD graphics card, head to the AMD Radeon Software and then head to the gaming tab. Choose the Global graphics tab and from there, choose the eSports profile. This profile will ensure that you will get the best possible performance in New World. Also, download the latest graphics driver for optimizations to the game.
Tips to Increase New World Performance
Disable Xbox Game Bar
To increase New World (and other games) performance, disable the Xbox Game Bar. To do so, press Windows Key + i to open Windows settings. Then head to the Gaming settings and then disable Xbox Game Bar and also disable background recording from the Captures menu.
To turn on Window’s game mode, search for Game Mode in the Windows search bar and select the ‘Game Mode’ setting. From there, turn on Game Mode.
Run at High Priority
To run New World as a high priority, head to the task manager while the game is running and then go to the Details tab. Right-click ‘NewWorld.exe’ and set the priority to high.
Run the game on SSD
Some performance can also be gained by installing the game on SSD, as it will load the textures and other game files much quicker as compared to a Hard disk.
While running New World, disable the in-game overlays of Steam and other applications such as discord to increase some performance.
