Ok, so i've been a long time Team Member and today used my discount and got the release version... To my horror the horrible optimization is still there. My GPU sits at 55% usage at the start of the race some times, with CPU load around 80% max, but framerate takes a dive into low 40s... Something is stalling in the rendering still. And still, if you add rain, it kills performance without taxing the GPU, something is wrong in the code. Been like this for at least a year now. Still there in release. Too bad. Hardware: GTX 980 SuperClock 1342MHz. 4Gb. VRAM 16Gb. RAM CPU@4.2 GHz. 4 core Problem is worse on some tracks, Spa being a notorious problem maker. Changing settings does little, as you would expect, since both GPU and CPU is underutilized. Don't go for screenshot quality for PR, if you can't code the damn thing to run properly in motion. As for the feel of the sim itself, it's still only so-so, but the immersion is nice. Shame it has problems still. Any ideas on settings? Else i'll wait, like i've done since being one of the first sponsors on WMD... Because it still feels unfinished.
