williextreme’s details each setting as follows:

  • Ambient Occlusion usually is just a waste of fps, don’t be afraid to turn it off.
  • Anisotropic Filtering doesn’t affect the performance, always set x16.
  • Post FX on Very High and Ultra look similar, but Ultra sometimes can reduce fps by 10 more.
  • Grass Quality is performance killer.
  • Extended Distance Scaling has little effect on the quantity of details, but significantly reduces performance.
  • Some shadows (e.g. some shadows created by car lights) may be seen only on Very High shadow quality.
