Try what Sense said on this thread. It's extremely simple, and it more than significantly improved my performance.

Bump. This seems to work for most people. In fact, with these changes I am able to run the game on "very high" settings better than I could using "high" settings.

Aw awesome I was wondering why I got 90 fps in some areas and then I look down at the floor or at something and it goes to 35.

Wait a minute, the game only has a poolsize of 140MB by default? My god, that would certainly explain why it struggles so much to load textures. And I'll copy/paste it here for ease of access:

Try this. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\BioShock Infinite\Engine\Config. Open BaseEngine. Find PoolSize and change the value to 512 or 1024 (Depending on how much Vram your card has). I run a GTX 660ti so im using 1024. Next search for MinSmoothedFrameRate and change it to 62. Right below that is MaxSmoothedFrameRate, change it to 122. Close and save changes. These tweaks gave me a massive performance boost and eliminated hiccups.

I'm assuming 3072 is recommended 3gb of v-ram then, or is that just excessive? Mine's set on 1024 currently.

Actually noticed a decent improvement, thanks for posting this.
