  4. Unlike what people usually suggest, I highly recommend enabling v-sync if you get any kind of stuttering. V-sync is unfortunate and bad for really low latency but at least for my computer it is absolutely needed for Project CARS (I have it disabled for all other games). The only way for me to get a silky smooth frame rate. Just make sure you set the graphics so that you can have constant locked 60fps.
  5. @bmanic I've checked your proposal, and as for me less advanced visuals plus higher frame rate with fps cap work best.

    Anti-aliasing comparison, which one to choose in Project CARS.

    My pick with single card would be HIGH + FXAA HIGH, with SLI DS2M + FXAA HIGH.

    Guys, how do I cap the fps?

    In general, I'm not able to run ANY sim I have with vsync off (R3E, iRacing, AC). The same with pcars.
  7. You can cap the frame rate with a command line option in Steam.

    Copied from the pCars official forums:

    -shakes (option) gives few more fps, like 3
    -blur on/off no difference
    -NV FXAA cheap and nice results

    Thanks. Where do you set FXAA HIGH? In NV profile, it's only on/off. (Using single 970)
  12. And now who will start the test with AMD cards :roflmao:. Your test isnt representative cause AMD cards has more ever performance impact with same settings and same class of videocard.
