Game is impossibly slow with my new computer (v on steam)

This week I have upgraded to a new computer, a Ryzen 7 2700x, 16gigs of ram and a Radeon Rx 480 4gigs. Normally I should have more than enough to run this game, but it's a slide show as soon as the game start. Music run fine, the mice as well, but everything else is stupidly slow. I did try to change the ini settings but nothing seem to make the game playable. My old computer could run this game just fine (scavenged some of the the parts for this one), but can't play Everspace with the new one. Other games run properly, I don't know what is wrong with this one.

    No idea. Is this in VR or in the normal version? Could your try terminating all background applications that might interfere in some way? Have you tried all window modes? Have you tried playing with sound turned completely off?

    1: Normal version (on steam, under Windows 10)
    2. Did try killing background programs, did nothing.
    3. Windows mode? Like compatibility modes? I have no idea how to do this with a steam game. As for changing resolution or making it full screen rather than windowed; no change.
    4. As for sound, I use a sound blaster card rather than onboard sound, so that may be why sound works normally.

    The only thing I see is some incompatibility of the game with the hardware I have. Every other game I have seem to work normally, Everspace is the only one that is unplayable regardless of what I do.

    Hmm, I don't have a clue - I'll ask around here, but it's strange. With window mode I meant the display mode (window/fullscreen/windowed fullscreen)

    I still can't get it to work...

    Finally found the problem; My windows 10 wasn't updated to the latest version. Auto update wasn't working properly so I had to manually install the update. But now the game works as it should!
