Hi everyone!

As the title says, I got severe performance issues since the game was released on Steam.
I am playing the MS Store version since late 2019 at 2560x1440 windowed to about 1900x1000 on automatic Ultra settings with very steady 60fps, regardless of weather, other cars, online, offline, etc.
Now I have to set 1920x1080 on very low to achieve about 40fps in Edinbourgh. When it's raining this drops to under 30. And the screen gets stucks every 30 seconds or so for half a second even in the countryside with no cars around and in good weather.

Here are the specs of my PC: ASUS Z370G, i7 8700k, 32GB, GF GTX 1080 (GF Surround @ 5760x1080 + 1 extra mon @ 2560x1440), onboard sound, Win 10 64 - Everything is up to date, the temps are low, as they should be...

Anyone also having troubles? Are there solutions out there?

Or am I to kill this game after one and a half years of playing?

edit: not 2019, rather Nov 2018

Performance has remained the same for me, ie. very good. i5-10600 (basically i7-8700) and GTX 1660. So it isn't the game, I don't know what else to suggest though.

Something to test:

Open NVidia ControlPanel
Left side 3D Settings then on right side "Restore"
On right side switch to ProgramSettings Tab
in dropdown look for horizon4 select and click restore

Make sure u have latest nvidia gameready driver installed

Open explorer navigate to
C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation
delete the "NV_Cache" folder

navigate to
C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME HERE]\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.SunriseBaseGame_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\NVIDIA Corporation
delete the "NV_Cache" folder

press windowskey or click start icon
type "cleanmgr" start the result
select main hdd
in the new window check directx-shadercache (uncheck things to keep downloads, whatever)
click ok

open fh4 swith to your normal gfx settings
it restarts and should show "optimizing blabla xx%"

Thanks @PinkiePie4997 for this detailled instructions! Sadly no difference :-(

Edit: Sorry @Threrbull6623, but you misread: I am playing the MS Store version.

2nd edit: another Thursday, anotehr version of the game - and performance dropped significantly yet again Stuttering occurs not every 30 seconds or so, rather every 2 seconds. I just tried to play an online adventure - I tried... The lagging was so extreme, I missed every (!) corner. This does not make fun anymore.
But I found an ingame benchmark. see pic:
