Self answer, I'm playing the game on my gaming laptop and it looks and plays fantastic, the only detail is that if I put the image quality to 200% the FPS drops below 60, so I keep it on 100%, the difference of image quality is minimum.

Update: now I play with the image quality up to 150%, what I did was to use DX11 instead of DX12, honestly, I see no difference whatsoever, and DX12 seems more like a FPS killer than anything else.
