So, as you know from my performance investigation thread, i am having a huge beef with some optimization work in pCars. The latest patch was awesome in that it bumped framerates radically on my NVidia hw. Also, i switched to an I7 Devils Canyon clocked at 4.8GHz. which helps. But still with the new patch the rain is not playable for me. I need 60+ fps in all situations, and my GTX980 and above CPU gives me a nice 85-95 fps in clear weather, all things maxed out. GPU usage around 70%. But as soon as rain hits, GPU usage is left at 75-85% and CPU only goes up slightly. Yet framerate is cut from 85 to 35... Which is the same for a lot of hw review sites opinions. So still the rain is a screenshot feature added for pr, at least for me who wants to race at a framerate that does not make you physically sick. Anyone having improvements after recent patch at all? I mean, i see improvements in clear weather, but rain is still unplayable and grossly unoptimized. Same on both console and PC. At least SMS should be aware of this by now. As for me, i run single races and no rain at all as it adds nothing to the game anyway apart from maybe PR screenshot possibilities. Happy with performance otherwise now, after patch. Still a bit dodgy utilization but a lot better on PC and seems faster on PS4 as well.
