After applying these tweaks I saw significant gains ranging from 30-70 FPS overall. I went from 60-120 FPS to 90-190 FPS.

First step: Find the boot.config file in the parent Valheim installation directory and open it with any text editor. Next enter these two lines at the very top of the config file and save.

Setting Valheim to High Priority
Third Step: Open Task Manager. Find Valheim under Processes. Click the dropdown arrow and right click Valheim. Click ‘Go To Details’.

Next right click valheim.exe and manuver to ‘Set Priority’ and change it to High. This is not a permanent and will need to reapplied everytime you restart Valheim.

There is an alternative alebit better way to work around this that I will post below.
