Update: We've now got confirmation on more details about this optimisation, including the fact that DirectX Raytracing is reserved for the 30fps mode, and there's even a special 120hz mode at 1080p if you want to use it.

"With three graphics modes you can pick your preference of frame rate, resolution, or visual fidelity, along with upgraded materials, particles and LOD (Level of Detail). We’ve also included the feature most requested by our community: chapter select! Now you can replay your favourite moments from Senua’s journey to Helheim, and make sure you track down every last lorestone."
